19 Sep 2003
In this collection of recipes, Gordon Ramsay reveals some of his best-kept culinary secrets. He shows how a relatively straightforward recipe can be varied or embellished. Make a refreshing summer soup, for example,and float olive oil infused ice cubes in it - to keep it chilled and impart flavour as they melt. Prepare his salad of seared tuna with a saute of treviso and follow his techniques for caramelizing bitter leaves. The book contains numerous culinary tips, expert advice on choosing ingredients, short cuts, variations and suggestions for adapting recipes for different occasions. Included are recipes for fish and shellfish, poultry and game, meat, vegetables, salads, fruits, and breads and pastries as well as flavourings and stocks and dressings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just new recipes 25 Sep 2003
I was at first reluctant to order this book, since I have noticed in many other famous chef cookbook quite some repetition of recipes.
Surprisingly enough, this was not the case. Ramsey has put together a new collection of recipes that show a clear influence form the central-south european area (e.g. very nice pumpkin/amaretto ravioli that are typical from north of Italy).
The book is also somehow better organised in ingredients classes so as it is easier to access to the recipe than in the "chef for all season".
Besides, he has included for almost every recipe some culinary tricks that range from just presentation tricks (how to make perfect lobster medallions) to real culinary tricks (like how to do double folded ravioli).
In a nutshell, this book is a joy and an inpiration also for people who have the other books by Ramsey. And the little tips really help and suggest way of improving the presentation of the food.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great useable book! 27 April 2004
This book stands out among cooking books by top-chefs.
The recipies are actually things you will cook. Not only are they clearlywritten with clear instructions the ingredients are not difficult to find.(The monkfish in parma-ham has ingredients you can find in most decentstocked shops).
Another great element is that the book is full of handy tips to make lifein the kitchen even more enjoyable.
I am a fond cook and found this book very useful and would recommend it toanyone who knows how to cook a decent meal but would like to cooksomething more special.
The book also has some great picture to inspire you to not only make thefood taste great but look good as well.
It has plenty of great seafood dishes in it. It would have gotten fivestars if the meat section would have contained a couple of more specialrecipies.
Enjoy this book and the recipies in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gordon Ramsay's Secrets 17 April 2011
Had to get this book as a friends son swears by it, especially the chicken pie, apparently to die for. Love the top tips which you don't get in other books. Looking forward to trying out some of the recipes. Probably will do the chicken pie over the Easter hols.
