    Sorry Gordie, that's honing a knife, not sharpening it.
    And if you put oil in the water in Italy, you'll get a smack in the mouth.

    I have to disagree on how the rice is cooked. Too much water. It shouldn’t be watery when its done.

    So many people in these comments acting like *_they're_* the ones who have dedicated their entire lives to cooking 🤦‍♀️
    Coming from a chef, the majority of what he's saying is the *_professional_* way chefs are taught. If you know an easier way or you think your way is better, great. Cooking is about creativity. But acting like you're better than him and bashing the man just because you boil water different doesn't make you hot stuff.

  • craig kirby

    That's odd from a three star chef. That rice recipe works with that pan, that amount or rice, and that amount of water. If you double that recipe, you get soggy rice. If you halve it, it will burn. If you use a different shape pan, you lose either more or less water to evaporation. Basically you need a 1:1 ratio of water to rice, plus an extra depth of water no matter what shape your pot, or what amount of water you are using. Try adding extra water up to your first joint on your pointing finger to start with. Then adjust accordingly next time, but that will work. Any pot, any amount of rice. If you dont believe me, cook Gordon's recipe in a frying pan, then a tall pot (with lids). Or ask anyone from a country that eats rice as the basis for most daily meals. This explains it better than I can. From America's Test Kitchen - Sorry Gordon, I love all your other work :)

    You can sharpen most knives perfectly well on the bottom of any ceramic cup or mug; you can always find a rough, uncoated ceramic ring there. Very handy when you're e.g. traveling.

    Hey, I can cut an onion finer and faster than Ramsay. I always find all my 3 cardamon pods in my rice - Ramsay only found 2... I remove the pin bones like a 'pro' before removing the skin because the fish is more structurally sound with the skin on. It's called 'honing' your knife - you 'sharpen' your knife when you can no longer hone your edge properly. Ramsay... olive oil in pasta water... what... the... actual... fuck? My mommy taught be better than Ramsay.

    Absolutely hate the shitty camera work. This ridiculous way they move the camera all over the place like they need a wee is the worst, and it's creeping into dramas more and more. The idiot who started this should have his balls sauteed.

    I honestly thought he was going to cook the rice the same as most English people do, with a pan full of water then drain off. I was please to see he was spot on. Always wash the rice, measurements as he said give or take. Use a see through lid with a little hole in the top for steam release. Once it bubbles up to the lid as he said turn id down to a simmer until you can't see any more water or little bubbles. Turn it off and leave it for 5 mins. Serve.

    Stirring the pasta while it's boiling in the water stops it from sticking. Adding a few spoonfuls of sauce after straining does the same. Any Italian cook will tell you never add olive oil to pasta water. It stops the sauce from sticking to the pasta in the plate. Love Gordon but I have to disagree with him on this one.
