Extraordinary Art & Brains on Display in Hs New Book
on August 18, 2011
In typical Gordon Ramsay fashion, we see Recipes that are very well done, not over-complicated, where every ingredient has a relevance and meaning that is essential to the dish. In the recipe for the spicy lentil soup, for example, the soup just gets better and better as you move through the preparation steps, until at the end the addition of the toasted spice seeds elevates the texture and flavor to the sublime.
This is clearly a book where his exquisite sense of Ingredients and what they mean in combination with each other, creates healthy culinary art. My appreciation for his level of mastery has gone way up with the purchase of this book, because he has a substantial, not superficial, understanding of what healthy cooking is. His art is matched by brains, which helps explain why he has such range and depth.
