I've been a big fan of Gordon for some time, watching his shows, reading his autobiography etc. This is the first of his cookbooks I have owned and I am very impressed.
The food is excellent, the suggested menus work well together (although I often interchange dishes). As well as themed 'lunches' there are also little asides e.g. 5 ways with carrots, and the spiced carrots with star anise has been a big hit with our guests. I've used Gordon's honey mustard marinade a lot, and the beef casserole with mustard mash potatoes has to be one of my favourites.
And as only a moderately experienced cook, I love the timelines for the themed lunches, i.e. what you can do the day before, what to do an hour ahead, what to do just before serving.
My favourite cookbook. Until, perhaps I buy another Ramsay cookbook.
What cuts this book down to three stars are the dreadful photos. They are often blurry and look like someone went haywire with instagram filters. But that is nothing compared to the often neon-colored backgrounds for white text in the book that are simply unreadable. there is no excuse for such poor graphic design (also many different fonts used on a page - terribly distracting).
I have many of Chef Ramsay's cookbooks and enjoy the recipes immensely. I like how they often tie-in to the style of food he suggests on Kitchen Nightmares and that are reflective of the cooking he does on his YouTube Channel (which is brilliant btw).
He has tons of fans and some pretty vocal detractors too but the proof is in the pudding and Gordon;s pudding is delish.
Unfortunately this book is (bleep)ing ugly.
By chef's own admission the food is simple, but innovative and exciting and I have been fortunate to enjoy several of the recipes already.
I admire Mr. Ramsay for trying to coax the British public into getting round the table together on a Sunday lunch time. Whether it will ever happen in our house where the members are usually scattered to the four corners of the property, doing their own thing. A tray on the knee, or even walking around with a plate in their hand, I have my doubts.
I do remember many years ago when I lived at home with my parents that Sunday lunch was a ritual that was virtually impossible to escape from. If you were not at the table, hands and face sparkling, you wouldn't hear the last of it until Monday morning.
However I digress, the book is a cook book. So is it any good. Well like the curates egg, it is good in parts. By that I mean, or so my wife tells me, that some of the recipes are excellent and some of them are OK and some of them she thinks she can do better herself, and who am I to argue.
Note - I do agree that some of the pages are hard to read due to the font and color choices (like white writing on pale yellow background) but those are usually just Gordon Ramsay's thoughts and introductions to recipes. The recipes themselves seem to all be clear and easy to read.
