Received fast and in new condition. Be aware In his cookbooks, since Chef Ramsey is from the UK he uses measurements and terms that are not standard and in some cases not familiar to us US cooks, which is very disappointing since that means we will need to purchase equipment that reads grams and milliliters And the oven temps are in centigrade so also have to be converted. I found no conversion chart anywhere in his cookbooks, so in order to try his I'm sure excellent recipes, will require considerable time to convert!

Please see my review for the 1st cookbook in his series, Kitchen Heaven. His cookbooks should have been the 1st on my self, then I wouldn't have hundreds of others. They're fun to read, but I cook from Ramsay's.

I love the way Gordon Ramsay cooks. I hope my food tastes as good as his. I wish There were more pictures in the book. It would help insecure cooks like me to know I'm close. Thanks Hey How about a Book for dummies. Sigh me up

I love this cookbook, it is very challenging to me as a beginning home cook. Some of the challenge is finding the ingredients for some of the recipes, but I see that as an adventure not as a hardship. I've made some of the recipes and they turned out great,even my 'fussy food critic' wife like them. My favorite recipe is the Roasted Rhubarb Creme Brulee though I serve it with a shot glass full of Granny Smith Apple Au jus. If you are looking for easy, no fuss recipes this is not a book for you!

I LOVE Gordon Ramsay. My boyfriend purchased this cookbook and also Gordon Ramsey Makes it Easy. This book is filled with items I would never dare even eat ex: roasted rabbit salad, a fish called Dorade, venison, lamb, etc. etc.
I think his work is marvelous but this book is not for your everyday cook. If you enjoy Gordon as much as I do, the best practical cookbook he has out is Gordan Ramsey makes it easy.

Pretty much food for one's eyes. I wish I could say I have re-created some of the recipes but no chance there. I'm a pretend chef and I like to cook but there is no way anyone without formal training could even try. Beautiful pictures and write ups. I mostly bought it and read it for pleasure, not practice!

Chef Ramsay suggests this book is not for the novice cook. I disagree. This book is for the novice cook who has watched many television cooking shows and decided it looks easy.

Recipes in "Passion for Flavour" seem flowered too much with French words, which suggests some French influence in Chef Ramsay's cooking. French words are not an issue as there are many pictures of the dish presentations. Cooking is pretty much a foreign language to most Americans anyway. Don't sweat the French words.

The most affordable dish for the novice cook for whom this book is not intended, is probably the pasta dish. It is affordable provided the novice has access to a pasta machine or knows of a relative who received one as wedding gift maybe thirty years ago. Once you finally get a pasta machine though it is yours forever. The same applies to a food processor or large mixing bowl or sauce pan. Yours forever does not apply to the ingredients that are not typically in a novice cook's shopping cart. Gordon Ramsay recommends reading the dishes ahead of time. A novice should read recipes carefully ahead of time not because they need to really study. Novices must read the book ahead of time to know what appliance to buy at the next estate auction or borrow from grandma.

One peculiar thing about recipes and pictures in this book: many contestants on television cooking shows present dishes that are probably influenced by memorizing dishes found in "Passion for Flavour". Given that, the recipes in the book would be fun for groups of friends to pool resources to try at home.

This book demonstrates how people who call themselves "Chef" have probably earned that title and somebody else paid for the ingredients.
