Gordon Ramsay Easy sees Britain's most celebrated chef moving out of the restaurant and into the home kitchen. Having reached his zenith in the culinary establishment, Gordon is now focusing on making his food accessible to a wider audience. This book features dishes which have all the hallmarks of Gordon's cooking - the best ingredients, great taste combinations, superb culinary skill - but the overall feel is more informal and the emphasis is on ease of preparation and simple techniques. Arranged around actual meals - Breakfast & Brunch, Great Fast Food, Family Lunches and Posh Dinners, Summer Bar-B-Qs and Cooking for Crowds, Bellinis & Blinis and Romantic Dinners for Two, High Teas and Midnight Feasts - each chapter contains 6-10 recipes either arranged as a selection or as menus. In addition, each chapter features a classic dish - such as an omelette, risotto, souffle, sauce or style of pastry - which Gordon demonstrates in close-up step-by-step photographic detail. The end result is therefore a great selection of dishes and an invaluable culinary handbook. Glorious photographs, 100 sophisticated but effortless recipes, and smart graphic design will make this book a must for all Gordon Ramsay's fans.
Publishers Weekly, 2005-07-25 In the U.S., British chef Ramsay is best known for his Fox reality show Hell's Kitchen, where he unleashes his fiery temper on innocent aspiring cooks. This work, which more than lives up to its title, allows Ramsay to showcase his softer side with anecdotes about his wife and photos with his children, while offering recipes where complex taste and elegant presentation belie simple preparation. Broccoli Soup, for example, cleverly uses broccoli, goat cheese and either walnuts or almonds to make for a light lunch or satisfying first course in less than 10 minutes. Even the unusual pairing of crabmeat and passion fruit in Crab Salad works beautifully, with flavor bursting in each bite. The recipes are artfully divided into eight sections, including ones for kids, fast food, cooking for a crowd and the often overlooked category of cooking for two. The section on summer barbecues is misleading, however, as most recipes work just as well indoors. Fresh herbs, wine, heavy cream and butter make repeat appearances but don't overwhelm, allowing the main ingredient to be the star. With echoes of Jamie's Dinners: The Essential Family Cookbook, by Jamie Oliver, this is a solid cookbook that could boost Ramsay's reputation Stateside. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
