Review

Gordon’s new show isn’t about being a chef. It’s about being a home cook, and he’s here to hold your hand as you tentatively grasp the saucepan. Based on 100 core recipes, this series concentrates on building confidence. If you’d usually just bung a chicken in the oven, Gordon’s got a recipe for a “very charming” version stuffed with chorizo and cannellini beans instead; if you fear the heat that emanates from a hot frying pan, he’s here to reassure you that without that hot hot hiss, things just ain’t cooking. This cookery course is almost as well-stuffed as Gordon’s chicken.

Summary

The chef gets down to basics by demonstrating how to make simple, accessible and modern recipes. The first episode sees Gordon reveal the secret of cooking with confidence, dishing up pork chops with sweet and sour peppers, and pan-fried scallops with a crunchy apple salad. He also offers tips for the kitchen, including how to keep knives sharp.
