Gordon Ramsay won his first Michelin star at the prodigious age of 27 and has since become one of the UK’s best-known chefs. Here, he turns his attention to the food that excites him most: fish and shellfish. Ramsay aims his advice at home cooks, especially those who are not used to preparing seafood, and he begins with an entire section on how to choose the freshest specimens.
Then, he proceeds to give a guide to filleting, skinning, trimming, preparing, marinating, flavoring and freezing all kinds of seafood. One hundred exciting recipes range from simple Salmon Fishcakes and Fish Pie to the more adventurous Crab Ravioli with Lemongrass Vinaigrette. This is a must for fish lovers everywhere.

Not a sausage – penniless, broke, fucking nothing – and although, at a certain age, that didn’t matter hugely, there came a time when hand-me-downs, cast-offs and football boots of odd sizes all pointed to a problem that seemed to have afflicted me, my mum, my sisters, Ronnie and the whole lot of us. It was as though we had been dealt the ‘all-time dysfunctional’ poker hand.
“As a chef, I work at a thousand miles an hour, but when I’m at home, I want to slow down.”
way from the high-octane energy of the professional kitchen, Gordon Ramsay makes meals at home that are more re-laxed, where cooking is fun and everyone gets involved in preparing food for family and friends. The way Gordon cooks here embodies his strongly held views: use in-season, fresh ingredients at their peak; support local producers and farmers’ markets whenever possible; and celebrate the food culture and its many influences.
