- Gordon Ramsay, a one time commis chef and protege of Marco Pierre White. He earned his own three Michelin stars at his restaurant on Royal Hospital Rd, Chelsea, London. (Previously on the same site, the restaurant 'La Tante Claire' under Pierre Koffman also had three Michelin stars). Ramsay has also been awarded seven other Michelin stars for his restaurants at Claridge's, The Connaught, Petrus at the Berkley Hotel, Maze and the Savoy Grill. He has since opened other establishments around the globe. The book is a very handsome production set out in the modern classic format featuring fifty of Ramsay's classic (his description) dishes all highlighted by beautiful full page photographs and very detailed recipes. As intended, this gives an insight into the standards required to gain and maintain three Michelin stars. Visually impressive, one's taste buds tingle with the assumption the smells and taste are just as good. A must for any serious modern cookery book collection. Must rank alongside the other literary efforts of Blumenthal, Adria, Robuchon, the Roux Brothers, Koffmann, Stein, Ducasse et al.
