“Detroit News 5 Best Books for Cooks” (Detroit News)

Présentation de l'éditeur

TV’s most popular chef, Gordon Ramsay, bridges the gap between his famous chef’s table (situated in the white heat of his restaurant kitchen) and his table at home with Tana and their young family. This cookbook is packed with simple, seasonal, modern British recipes.

Gordon lives life in the fast lane, travelling the world to foster his many hugely successful business enterprises and to film his highly acclaimed TV series. But, despite the commitments of a busy work life, he has always believed that families should sit around their tables to eat together as much as possible.

His latest cookbook gathers together over 100 inspiring and well-constructed recipes which everyone will enjoy cooking for their friends and family, including Chorizo, broad bean and mint couscous, Scallop brochettes with coriander and chilli butter, Smoked salmon and horseradish cream tarts and Toffee and chocolate steamed pudding.

The recipes embody Gordon’s strongly held opinion that we should support local producers and farmers’ markets, that we should cook with seasonal fresh ingredients which haven't travelled miles to reach our plates and that we should celebrate the wealth of regional dishes available to us from Cornish crab soup to Bakewell tarts.

Gordon shares the dishes that he loves to cook (and eat) when he’s off duty. With chapters covering Hot and Cold Soups; Pasta and Grains; Fish and Shellfish; Meat and Poultry; Pies and Tarts; Vegetables and Salads; Puddings and Ices and Coffee and Chocolate, each recipe is introduced with an insight into why he has chosen it and includes tips on how to re-create it perfectly. With emphasis on simplicity for stunning results, the majority of the recipes are short and easy to cook.

This beautiful book has been created by one of Britain's top designers, in tandem with an amazing young photographer. While food is king in this book, sprinkled as it is with candid photos of Gordon and the family, Cooking for Friends allows you to share his love of life and the good things in it.

Perhaps most famous in the U.S. as the host of "Hell's Kitchen," British chef and restaurant entrepreneur Gordon Ramsay shares his cooking expertise in his new book "Cooking for Friends." The book itself is filled with quality photos and split into nine sections: Hot and Cold Soups, Pasta and Grains, Fish and Shellfish, Meat and Poultry, Savory Pies and Tarts, Vegetables and Salads, Desserts and Ices, Chocolate and Coffee, as well as Basics. The recipes themselves are full of European flavor, which is not surprising since Ramsay is from the U.K. Each section starts off with a brief introduction by Ramsay, as well as a listing of all the recipes in this section. Through the introductions, we learn that Ramsay's soups recipes were influenced by his experience with the New England clam chowder, his love for pasta stems from the time he was trained as a chef in Sicily and Sardinia, while his creativity with chocolate dates back to his time working in Paris. Other food sections are influenced by Ramsay's lifestyle--such as the weekly pies his mother baked when he was a child or his wife's Tana's wish to have their children enjoy a rich vegetarian diet. The recipes themselves are unique, with many quite challenging while others fit for beginners. Some of my favorite recipes included lemon meringue pie, grilled vegetable lasagna, crayfish chowder, dark chocolate marquise, and wild mushroom barley risotto. The end of this book has an index structured by ingredients, which I found to be another helpful aspect of this book. So, for example if I want to cook something with bacon, I could look it up in the index and find the page numbers for the recipes that include this ingredient. Same for other ingredients like walnuts, cherries, cheese, celery, etc. Last but not least, this colorful book--embedded with not only images of the recipes but also Ramsay's family gatherings, looks like it would look good on a coffee table or make a great gift for any food lover.

I've watched Gordon Ramsay on several of his TV shows, particularly on BBC America. He can have Attitude -- oh boy can he! But he also demonstrates a passion for cooking, and his perfectionism very obviously comes from his desire to do things right. That inspired me to pick up his most recent cookbook, Cooking for Friends -- and I'm very glad I did.

Ramsay's cookbook doesn't fall into an easy classification. This isn't special-occasion cooking for impressing the boss (though several recipes would qualify) nor is it exactly family cooking (though again, several recipes fit into that category). It certainly isn't "30 minute meals" as some recipes require quite a bit of time; yet at least a few of the meals are simple enough for a weeknight dinner. I'd have to call this collection, "Recipes that Ramsay likes to make and his friends and family like to eat." Based on my experimentation, so far, I'd have to say that I LIKE that category.

Chapters are devoted to soups; pasta and grains; fish and shellfish; meat and poultry; savory pies and tarts; vegetables and salads; desserts and ices; chocolate and coffee; and basics (chicken stock, etc.). Around half have photos; that matters to some people. About 50 pages of the 260-page book are devoted to desserts and after-dinner treats -- a plus for some people, a detriment to others.

So far, I've made two dishes, both of which were outstanding. As Ramsay describes it, his pork tenderloin stronganoff is "a lovely, unfussy dish to make for supper," served over buttered pasta. It took an hour start-to-finish in the kitchen, with ingredients I mostly had in the house. My husband practically licked the plate. Ramsay's duck breasts with port and cherry sauce created an awesome sauce. (The flub was my fault. He called for 4 duck breasts, each 7-8 ounces; mine were nearly a pound each. Next time I'll pay more attention!) On my "I'll make this soon!" list are broccoli, Stilton, and pear soup; the weeknight-friendly pasta with bacon, peas, and sage; his Shepherd's Pie (assuming I can find a source for Branston Pickle). It's a British book so it reflects their common ingredients -- rather more lamb and venison than we can buy here, for example, at least at affordable prices. Yet I dare say that you can find most ingredients at your local grocery (Branston Pickle notwithstanding).

While none of his techniques are fussy, he definitely doesn't encourage you to take shortcuts. The duck dish has you reduce ingredients by half at least twice; you don't just dump stuff in a pot, give it a big stir, and serve it up. The effort does show in the finished dish, but new or impatient cooks may not care for this.

I do, however. Ever since I got this book, I've cheered on Ramsay's F-Word shows with more enthusiasm. This is a guy who cares about cooking things RIGHT. And my dinners show it.

I have always loved Gordon Ramsay on television. I have not always felt his cookbooks translate well to American cooking. This one does though. I not only loved the recipes and the organization of the book (by course type and protein type mostly) but the photos and the commentary are also great. The book pulled me in from the cover and kept me enraptured all the way to the index. Duck with Port wine and cherry sauce, Pear Frangipane are both on my immediate must try list. Casual enough for everyday cooking and elegant enough for any special occasion, this is going to be my go to Gordon Ramsay cookbook. One caveat: make sure you read the cook's notes in the beginning. If you don't have a convection oven, all temperatures should be set 25 degrees higher than the recipe calls for.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 love the show and like this book 12 avril 2010

Gordon has a lot of nice receipies in this book. I have tried several and been happy with most of them. What I really like about Gordon is that he is not tunnel visioned about the types of recipes hence, you get some nice variety. I think for the money, you wont be sorry to add it to your collection like I did.

What's not to like about Gordon Ransay (unless you're on the sharp end of his tongue). The man clearly understands food and these meals display and very different inventiveness and degree of taste he would not be able to show in a restaurant setting.

I have cooked several of these recipes for myself and they were delightful.
