"I want to teach you how to cook good food at home. By stripping away all the hard graft and complexity, anyone can produce mouth-watering recipes. Put simply, I'm going to show you how to cook yourself into a better cook."
Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Cookery Course is about giving home cooks the desire, confidence and inspiration to hit the stoves and get cooking, with over 120 modern, simple and accessible recipes. The ultimate reference bible, it's a lifetime's worth of expertise from one of the world's finest chefs distilled into a beautiful book.
This is an unexpected breath of fresh air... He's ditched the showing off and gone back to basics. The book is written in a matter-of-fact, unpatronising style, but his years of knowledge shine through on every page. He covers everything, from the fundamentals of kitchen kit and how to season a pan, to tips that even experienced cooks might not know... All in all, a long overdue correction to the sweary, shouty, cheffy image. Daily Mail
Scottish by birth, Gordon Ramsay was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, and initially aspired to be a professional footballer. However, when an injury prematurely put an end to any hopes of a promising career on the pitch, Ramsay went back to college to complete a course in hotel management. His dedication and natural talent led him to train with some of the world's leading chefs.
Now internationally renowned and holding seven Michelin stars, Ramsay has opened 34 restaurants globally including Europe, America, Asia and the Middle East. Ramsay has also become a star of the small screen in the US and UK, and earned himself an EMMY nomination in 2017.
Ramsay has released a number of books, many of which have become bestsellers around the world; his latest cookbook is Quick and Delicious.
A keen triathlete, Gordon lives with his wife Tana and five children, Megan, twins Jack & Holly, Tilly and newest member of the family, Oscar. He divides his time between London, Los Angeles and Cornwall.
