What a fantastic idea to promote Sunday Lunch, in this day and age with the pace we all work at, families seldom have time to sit down for a meal together. This book sends the message that even if it is once a week, it is important to have a Sunday lunch even if not on a Sunday, and no matter how many members there are in your family, be it two or more.
This is a fantastic book that I will be using time and time again. Highly recommended.
Despite Mr Ramsey's fame, he is a no-nonesense chef and his enthusiasm and passion, got me going. I have since cooked a number of his recipes - all worked and all were delicious. I also agree about Sunday lunches and eating together as a family - whilst growing up, those lunches were a ritual and hold many happy memories - it is a great shame that for many, this time together with either family or friends, no longer holds the same appeal.
As far as Mr Ramsey being a self-promoter, what of it? If anyone had a modicum of his talent, and the opportunity, who wouldn't do the same? As for being in danger of over-exposure, I don't think he has much to fear. Unlike a number of other celebrity chefs, he hasn't given up what he does best - cooking. No, I don't think he has many sleepless nights worrying about that - if his bubble bursts, he is in the fortunate position of being at the very pinnacle of what he does.
Eating together is really important to me - in my house we sit down as a family at least once a week to share good food and lots of laughter. This is always my favourite day of the week.
Only 20% of families in the UK sit together on a Sunday to eat lunch - Let's make it 100%.
The main aim of this chunky Gordon Ramsay book is indeed to get family and friends back to Sunday dinner type of dining, but don't be put off by the title reference to 'Sunday Lunch', because contained within are plenty of other recipes from the 'F Word', that could be enjoyed any day of the week!

sandwiched between a recipe list (although this can be hard to read with black ink on dark brown paper), an introduction and a 4-page section entitled 'Basics'.... finishing up with a concise index.Read more ›
Ramsays last book tried to do the same thing bust the dishe were bland and a little boring (a bit ainley harriotish!) Where as this book has some excellent reecipes that are simple yet very tasty i.e. vesison & chocolate sauce. If you have watched the F word or just like cooking buy this book it is excellent & a must have
Luckily, emboldened by success I have tried many of the other recipes and have found them easy to follow and have had the same success. The creamy lemon desserts are particularly classy looking, but foolproof. The cauliflower soup is also excellent and a little bit unusual. A life saver if you're bored of cauliflower cheese.
I like the way this book is organised around menus, although I rarely do all the courses together, preferring to pick and choose what suits my family at the time. It is however, thoughtfully laid out with great tips and is a very accessible, user friendly book.
