‘F’ for Fantastic Gordon Ramsay …. ‘F’ for Fennel, Feta & Football too!

The Wooden Spoon Club put the ‘F’ Word Chef to the test last time we met and sure enough ‘F’ turned out to be for Fantastic Gordon Ramsay. His so-called foul-mouthed persona certainly didn’t come out in his food. In July we sat down to a fine feast full of fennel & feta, while football dominated the conversation as the World Cup was in full swing. This was indeed fitting as Mr Ramsay was a footballer before he started scoring goals in the kitchen.

Overall Conclusion

Gordon Ramsay’s recipes are surprisingly approachable and easy to follow with fine results. I personally prepared the ‘Minted Melon, Feta & Fennel & Salad’ from his ‘Fast Food’ book and I will now be turning to the other books I own by him, particularly his ‘Sunday Lunch’ & ‘Gordon Ramsay A Chef For All Seasons’ book, which I can’t wait to cook from this Autumn. As for our feast, he was certainly our man of the match.

Next meeting: We will be choosing dishes from Delicious Magazine
