    You need to be harsh, bully others to became a best chef. Unless you speak "you are an butthole" to a fellow junior cook, you can't be the great chef.

    If you want to spend a bit more on mortar and pestle get a japanese one - the inside is scored which makes it quicker.

    That was excellent advice, but if you are really desperate and can only afford one pan, get a wok, they are so versatile, everything from frying, deep frying, boiling and even steaming.

    0:57 -- » baking is SO popular now « .... what a self-centered Douche-Bag! He really thinks he invented cooking and everything connected with it. I would NEVER EVER buy anything with the name GR on it, or anything he promotes. A person who uses foul language as his first language, just to make money, is in my world not worth a single ¢. Just looking at the banged up blade of his chef knife at 1:16 makes me shiver. He clearly treats his kitchen knives like he treats people on his TV shows: like cr@p.

      Australia. I'm pretty sure there are quite a few countries mate. We've had gas stoves in Oz for decades; they're not that rare and have way more heat control than electric or induction.

      gordon doesn't use his own branded gear because its aimed at general public and affordable gordans a millionaire he can have the best and does

  • Hallowene 420

    Today he uses Cast iron grille plates (ribbed, flat, and pan) a lot. Plus he uses a flat grater for lemon zest etc. Mentioning the brand of non stick skillet is crucial here and you failed.🤬
