Book Description

5 Mar 2009

In his outstanding new cookbook, Gordon Ramsay teams up with Mark Sargeant to showcase the best of British cooking. Packed full of sumptuous and hearty traditional recipes, Gordon Ramsay's Great British Pub Food is perfect for relaxed, homely and comforting cooking.

Pubs were once a place where you could always guarantee good, simple, cheap food and a great Sunday roast, but when the steak houses and fast food chains arrived the good home cooking from the pub kitchens was replaced with tasteless, defrosted meals. Then came the gastropubs, which weren't much better, serving mediocre food at restaurant prices.

That's why when Gordon Ramsay and Mark Sargeant set up the Gordon Ramsay pubs in London they wanted to produce the sort of simple but delicious British classics that warm the cockles of your heart and to serve them at affordable pub prices. Dishes like rich, hearty Chicken and Smoked Bacon Pie, mouth-watering Gloucestershire Sausages with Grainy Mustard Mash and Red Onion Marmalade and indulgent Treacle Tart - classics that have stood the test of time.

Now Gordon has gathered his favourite British recipes into one sumptuous collection so you can invite your friends round, serve some good, English ale and cook the best in traditional pub food classics in your own home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not disappointed!! 9 April 2009
Having already bought several Gordon Ramsey books, I did wonder if this one would really provide anything new but I'm not disappointed! The recipes are a real mix of traditional and original with some really quick and tasty ideas. Can really recommend the London Particular soup - intrigued by the name, we gave it a try and were rewarded with a cheap, easy-to-make and hearty soup that I'l definitely be making again.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like this book 4 Aug 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Being a dedicated foodie with a bookcase already full of food and cookery books, enjoying cooking, but not liking Gordon's TV Language, I would not normally have bothered to buy this book. I was staying with friends and they had been given a copy. I browsed through it and was hooked. The presentation and photographs are excellent and make you want to cook and eat the dishes. The recipes are for mainly classic British food, good stuff that we remember. If this is Gordon's experience of pub food, I want to go to that pub to eat. Many of the recipes are difficult to find in most modern cookery books. In this book they are well laid out, easy to follow and best of all they work. Very glad I bought my own copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this F***ing book big boy! 7 Mar 2009
This is a fantastic book of British favourites with the Ramsay touch. It has easy to follow recipes for everything from crisps & pork scratchings (Michelin starred pork scratchings???)to roasts, with tradional comfort food like hotpot etc, steak in ale pie, pates etc. I've only had the chance to try one recipe so far in my first 24 hours but it has turned out wonderfully.

I have quite a few Ramsay cookbooks and would reccomend this one to anyone. Whereas some (like 3 * chef) are almost "food porn" - looks great but little chance of doing it at home, this is easy to follow with everyday ingredients, no special equipment but great wholesome food.

The print is clear, some great photos of the food and of Ramsay & Sarge, a nice retro feel to some of them too.

I don't have a Ramsay pub within about 100 miles so this is the next best thing. Buy it, read it, use it to make something to impress your family and friends, you and they will be glad you did

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good book of traditional British Pub Food 9 July 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have really enjoyed reading through this and trying some of the excellent recipes. The book covers a large number of dishes most cooks will already make my their version off, but don't take that as a bad thing. Instead I think of it a bit like the Cook Off's on the F-Word where Gordon shows the celebs his take on their signature dish, mainly resulting in a really good alternative.

I have tried the bangers and mash and the chicken and bacon pie to great success. I am sure the others will be just as easy. Compared to Jamie Oliver's random mutterings on a page that sometimes leave vital decisions to the imagination, Gordon's recipes are easy top read and follow. For a nice change these ones are very realistic midweek home fayre too. You don't have to throw a dinner party, scour oriental supermarkets or any of the other nonsense many cookbooks result in. Instead the vast majority of recipes are best serviced by a herb garden, a trip to the butcher, the greengrocers and some store cupboard essentials, my kind of cooking.

My only wish with this book is that some of the bloomin awful pubs around my house go buy this and take on some of the recipes. It is near impossible to name one that provides what I class as good pub food, instead it is either carveries or menus so big there isn't a cat in hells chance of anything being fresh. A simple mixture of some nice grill basics and 4-6 specials for the week should be enough for any of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School Pub Grub 5 Jan 2011
Just got the book yesterday and I can't wait to started! The recipes are using traditonal the "cheap meats" of England as they would have been hunted/caught. Unfortunately, now a days Grouse, Pidgeon, pheasent are farmed and are considered an exotic delicacy. But I'm sure substituting with Free Range Chicken/ Turkey/ Cornish Game Hens will be equally delectable.

The recipes themselves are straightforward and look mouth watering. Gordon has also included a lot basic accompanying recipes such as Tartare Sauce, Red Onion Marmalade & Yorkshire Puddings. Essentially, recipes you SHOULD know but have yet to find a reliable recipe.

The part about book that has really surprsied me is the number of desserts! - Never seen that on a pub menu! But, OMG I can't wait to try making them. One recipe, in particular, is the Pimm's Pudding! Always been a fan of Pimm's and the idea of making the pudding right after picking the fresh strawberries myself will be justice served!

If you're always on the look out for new ways of roasting meats or making savoury pies this book is worth picking up. As all the recipes reflect Gordon's respect & passion for food. Best part is the book does NOT contain (many if any) repeats from his earlier books.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can pull me a pint anytime, Gordon 13 Mar 2009
By Scottish Footie VINE VOICE
Love Gordon and love this new book. There are some real classics here which I'd sort of forgotten about but never should have. It's a real celebration of good, honest, simple food which is what any good pub should focus on. Good bangers and mash will beat hand-massaged Iranian goose burgers with a side of organic kale roasted by monks any day of the week.
