What is it with many famous chefs when they write a cookbook or, even worse, when they get to front their own television series!Often they tend to forget the relative cooking skill level of those watching, which can lead to dishes being more complex than necessary or one is left searching for some exotic ingredient that might make a difference at a top restaurant to justify the price but in the average home...

I've only attempted making a few things from this book, but they are all absurdly easy to make! The only downside is that all of the ingredients, when following them to the letter, are really pricey! And I love the fact that you don't need the Top Chef kitchen to make everything. He says in the book things like, "if you want to make THIS you need THIS REALLY EXPENSIVE AND HARD TO FIND THING, but THIS SIMPLE AND CHEAP THING YOU PROBABLY HAVE ALREADY BUT DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS will also work just...more

After seeing him for years on tv, and hearing his opinions on Masterchef (among other shows), I decided to buy one of his cookbooks. I read a recommendation on Barnes & Noble that said this book is good for home cooks, that the recipes are more like everyday cooks would use.

I'm not sure if that description fits. There are more fish recipes in this cookbook than any other cookbook that's not labeled "Fish Cookbook"! More than half of the meat recipes are for fish. Which may just encourage me...more
He really does make everything look easy if it's got ingredients I don't normally buy. Nice thing is you can repeat the same few dishes over and over. Comes with a DVD featuring five dishes being made by Chef Ramsay, and they are a pleasure to watch. My cooking ability is average and these were easy to follow and the results were good. Great photographs, love that he includes a section on cooking with kids, and the exposition is nice - sounds so personable, like how the chef talks in his videos.
This book is filled with simple yet delicious recipes made by my favorite English chef. I enjoyed reading his views of qualities of meats and breads while giving advice of what types of produce and products to look for and the best ways to prepare and cook them. I hope that I will one day be able to achieve success as that of Gordon Ramsay with my own culinary desires and acting wishes.

Recommends it for: Those who love to cook & those who don't know how but want to learn

I cannot believe how easy these recipes are. This is defiantly a cook book to buy. The pictures are gorgeous, it's wonderfully explained and includes a DVD showing how to make about five of the recipes. My mouth waters just flipping through. It's perfect for a beginner home cook.
Many of the recipes call for things that I don't have access to or don't enjoy because of personal preference. Still,I will gladly try some recipes and I'm sure I will enjoy them. The wild mushroom risotto and the lobster spaghetti to name a few.
my son wants to be a chief, and we love Hell's kitchen. We started watching Hell's Kitchen because I wanted him to see the kind of people he could be working for, and the pressure situations, etc. In spite of all that, he still wants it.
I love to cook and have already used a number of recipes from this book. When I get concerned about the calories I find substitutes because some of the recipes can be very rich but are not beyond the reach of anyone who loves to cook.
Good book, plenty of recipes and pictures for the recipes. My only problem? I don't like fish... Most of the recipes are fish. It's not too big of a problem because everyone I know likes fish, so I'll make them fish! :P

This guy's up there with Jamie Oliver - love 'em both. Just wish he wouldn't swear so much! But - he doesn't use the 'f' word in his book, or at least I don't recall seeing it! LOL
I love the photos although recipes are not quite easy to follow. I mean his pantry is different from mine. I just love his fondant potatoes. Delicious!
Every recipe I've tried out of this book has been excellent, and, as an added bonus, the pictures are beautiful.
The recipes I have been able to make are great. The problem lies in that many of the recipes are not everyday meals.
The illustrations of the food looked very nice, but there were very few recipes in the book that I would actually make.

His recipes seemed very easy to make, but he uses alot of seafood. Which I do not like.
