Format: Hardcover
Taking its inspiration from Channel 4's popular F Word series, Gordon Ramsay's Fast Food: Recipes from 'The F Word' has over 100 delicious recipes that are quick and easy to prepare using top quality ingredients.

Gordon launched his Sunday Lunch campaign last year as a 'lack of time', was the excuse most people gave for not cooking opting for seemingly quick alternatives such as ready meals and take-aways.
He argues that it is time to re-define the concept of fast food and prove that anyone can prepare speedy meals in less time than it takes to get a pizza delivered.
Many of the dishes can be prepared and cooked in 15 minutes (none take longer than half an hour) and 'the menus' take 30-45 minutes from start to end.

255 high quality matt pages split over chapters:

1. Light & healthy
2. A taste of Morocco
3. Country cooking
4. Viva Italia!
5. Fast fish and chips
6. Outdoor eating
7. Mexican flavours
8. Easy for a crowd
9. Tapas spread
10. Cheap & cheerful
11. Summer special
12. Indian spice
13. Thai feast
14. Speedy Sunday lunch
15. Fast drinks party

plus an introduction, 'Store-cupboard Essentials', a 'Basics' section and a concise index.
At the front of the book is the added bonus of a quick reference 'Recipe List'.

Each recipe is clearly laid out with a title and number of servings, a list of ingredients and the method.
The majority have a photograph(s) and often a helpful note, e.g.

I bought this book after being impressed with the new series on channel 4 at the moment - and was pleasantly surprised at the variety of recipes in this book. Nice colour pictures, detailed recipes but not too detailed enabling your own enterpretation of the recipe. The 3 Recipes I have tried so far have been well recieved by my family, and they are a perfect, healthy and natural alternative for what passes for "fast" food - and don't take long to cook. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone that is even considering it!

I can't believe that a BRAND NEW book, published only last week, is on such a GOOD price here and in the bookshops in town.

There is nothing I can add to Amazon Reviewer's superb review - just buy the book - NOW - you will not regret it.

My only criticisnm is that the introduction is a bit hard to read being white on a mid-shade of blue but maybe that is just my age, or my eyes!

This is a great book from Ramsay but I have to criticise some of these other reviews on here - there is NO swearing in the book!

Whether one likes this side of Ramsay, or not, the book is the book and the TV series is just that - I don't thik the contents of latter should be aired in a book review!

A lavishly produced book which is easy to read, persuse and cook from......FAST!

By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 2 Feb. 2008
Format: Hardcover
This is a great book with loads of recipes as featured in 'The F Word'. They are all easy to make and can be prepared and cooked in under 30 minutes, and the selected menu ideas can be put together in about 45 minutes. The recipes are easy to follow and are very clear, i've tried other book and got lost at times, but you get none of that with this book. The photography is great and really shows the food well. You occasionally get pictures of the food in it's pre and post cooked state so that you can see how it should look before and after and acts as a great guide. I've used this book (as well as Jamie Oliver's latest) to help me try some new recipes and to add some new ideas to my usual selection of meals I make on a routine basis. This is perfect for that goal, as each recipe is perfectly timed to get it prepared and cooked when i've got in from a busy day at work. The food tastes great as well, what more can you ask for? Well worth a try to expand your cooking skills and recipe knowledge.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

This is a great book and fantastic ideas.....

However my disappointment really relates to the fact that it is the same as the earlier "Fast Food - F Word" book, even though the ISBN number, Publication date & publishers are different. I thought I was buying a newer version of the previous one instead I get an identical one just with a different cover.

Beware if you already have previous "Fast Food - F Word" this isnt a newer version just the same with different cover

I have read mixed reviews on this book but I always believe it's down to personal opinion so I decided to give it a go. Im more of a baker and enjoy baking cakes and sweet treats but the family cant live of them so i try normal food every now and then. The book itself is visually appealing with its sleek cover and overall quality. Ive always been a fan of gordon ramsay and had high hopes for this particular cook book.

The main problem i found with this book is that it had a poor layout with muddled recipes, it flicks between quick recipes and then desserts with no particular order. I compare these recipes to more fine dining then everyday meals or takeaways. This also features a lot of fish and to be honest I'm not a fish fan but for people who do then great! i consider myself to be a basic cook although i will give anything a go from cook books but i found this complicated. There are certain ingredients such as smoked trout and quails eggs that i wouldnt normally eat or keep in. I think some people would find this amazing and totally get it but it wasn't for me I'm afraid. I think I will just stick to watching him on t.v instead
