New cooking show worth watching.

On the Food Network in Canada I watched a fast paced Gordon Ramsay Show called Ultimate Cookery. What a good show!
The show's concept is to demonstrate skills to the viewer to improve their skills as home cooks. The meals demonstrated by chef Gordon Ramsay are meant to represent a hundred core recipes.
There are 20 episodes being made. I loved the first show. It started in the UK in October 2012. Lots of info and technique and surprisingly......didn't hear the F word once!

  1. Yes, I've been watching it here as well.

    Unfortunately, he's being stingy re: posting any of the recipes online. You have to buy the accompanying book.

    While I have absolutely zero problem with chefs making $$$ via their cookbooks, I only buy cookbooks from tv chefs when I've been able to view at least a sampling of recipes from their shows. Most tv chefs do this, but both Gordon Ramsay & Jaime Oliver are the absolute stingiest in this regard, thus I own none of their cookbooks. Their loss.

    1. Bummer.... I just searched for it in my area (US), but nothing.

        Go to Food Network Canada, there is a link on the home to watch it.

          Yes, there's a link, but US access is denied.

          The show has been running in the daytime at least on BBC America. At least two episodes back to back around noon time today.

            Okay, noticed it again yesterday on the schedule so I looked it up. BBC America is running the show almost daily at noon with two episodes back to back. Today and tomorrow at 12:00 noon EST is episode 13 and 14 respectively. On January 16, the series starts over with the first episode. Here's the link to BBC America:


          2. Ugh. I just couldn't watch a show with him in it.

              I was hoping to find it too. I'm starving for something new. Food Network is going to hell in a hand basket. It's like the only show they have is DDD. Ugh.

                It's one of the rare recent examples where he's not being a complete and utter twat. Informative at times, and worth at least skimming through.

              2. I live in the UK and watched the full series when it aired. Really good quality, instructional show with good recipes. Got the book as soon as I saw it in store!

                Not one of his usual swearing tirade filled 'reality' shows so definitely worth a watch!

                1. I am not usually a fan of Ramsay's persona but I enjoyed this series. It's full of good solid home cooking recipes with hardly a cheffy twitch amongst them. I was gob-smacked that I actually wanted to buy one of his books.
