In his new Channel 4 series TV chef Gordon Ramsay embarks on a culinary journey around India, discovering the breadth and depth of cooking of the country. His new cookbook is packed with the best recipes from his travels, showing you how to cook authentic dishes that are bursting with flavour. Three-star chef Gordon Ramsay's favourite food is one that he shares with a lot of Britain - curry. But, until now, he's never been to India to see how the real thing is cooked. Accompanied by a Channel 4 film crew, Gordon takes the culinary trip of a lifetime to discover real Indian cuisine and share this collection of over 100 of his favourite Indian dishes. As you'd expect from a Michelin-starred chef, Gordon brings his eye for perfection and ability to judge flavours perfectly to his exploration of Indian food and shows us how to cook authentic, mouth-watering dishes from all over this huge and varied country. He visits Kerala deep in the South of India to bring us spicy, coconut-based curries and travels to colourful Rajasthan to learn about the creamy, flavourful dishes of the North. Along the way Gordon experiences the hugely different flavours and spices from the different regions and absorbs local cooking styles and traditions. Throughout his culinary journey, Gordon selects the best of the vast array of Indian spices, now readily available in British supermarkets. He shows us how to use these authentically to produce a beautifully flavoured Indian dish. Gordon Ramsay's Great Escape includes over 100 recipes in the following sections: Everyday, Entertaining, Quick Lunches and Healthy Dishes. Once Gordon shows you how easy it is to put together authentic Indian dishes, you'll never look back.show more

Our customer reviews

I've never written on Book Depository, but felt compelled to do so after testing out a couple of recipes from my new Gordon Ramsay cookbook. So far I've only tried two of the recipes - the Spiced Tomato and Coconut Soup, and the Butter Chicken (the recipe for which, was the main reason for purchasing this book). All other Indian cookbooks I've purchased have Butter Chicken recipes, however somewhere in the list of ingredients is a tablespoon or two of Butter Chicken paste. Gordon Ramsay's recipe shows you how to make this delicious dish from scratch and I have to say, after a few hours of nervousness, the end result was amazing. I cooked for a table of ten and most went back for seconds. Not only are the recipes very detailed and written in sometimes a very comical way, the photography is breathtaking and the travel journal entry at the beginning of the book is so captivating it makes you want to pack your bags and head to India on the next available flight. I cannot recommend this book enough - all lovers of Indian food do yourselves a favour and purchase it now!show more
