Gordon Ramsay Cookalong Salmon en croute with herbed new potatoes and broccoli recipe
Serves 4 Ingredients For the salmon en croute

Approx 10g bunch of basil Approx 5g bunch dill 60g unsalted butter at room temperature Zest of 1 lemon 1 x approx 1kg side of salmon, skinned, pin boned and cut in half 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard Plain flour, to dust 500g shortcrust pastry 1 x egg Olive oil Salt Black pepper

For the new potatoes


750g small new potatoes Approx 10g bunch basil Approx 5g bunch dill

Gordon Ramsay Cookalong - Week 1 - Main For the broccoli


1 large head of broccoli, or 2 smaller 2 garlic cloves, peeled

Method: How to make salmon en croute with herbed new potatoes and garlic sauted broccoli 1. Preheat oven to 200C/gas 6. 2. Dust a clean surface with flour and roll out the pastry using the salmon as a guide size. Leave to rest in a cool place. 3. Place the softened butter in a large bowl. Use scissors to roughly chop in the dill and basil before grating in the lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper and mix. 4. Pat the salmon fillets dry using kitchen paper and season with salt and pepper. Spread the butter mixture over one side of the fillet and the wholegrain mustard on the other. Sandwich the two salmon fillets together, in opposite directions so that both ends are of a similar thickness. 5. Beat 1 egg to make your egg wash. Place the salmon in the centre of the pastry and brush around it with the egg wash, season with salt and pepper. Bring up the longest pastry sides, trimming as much excess away as possible, and tuck them in before folding the shorter pastry edges over to form a neat parcel. Turn the whole thing over so that the seam is sitting on the bottom, and transfer to a non-stick baking tray. Brush with egg wash over the outside. Mark the pastry using the back of a small knife to make a cross hatch. Mark again to show 4 portions. Finally season the salmon parcel with salt and pepper. 6. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and crisp. 7. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for approximately 12-15 minutes in salted water, until tender. Strain into a colander and leave to drain over the pot. Drizzle with olive oil, and chop in the extra dill and basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 8. Cut the broccoli into florets, and cut any larger florets in half. Cook in a pan of boiling salted water for 3 minutes, or until al dente. Drain. 9. Saut the broccoli in a dry pan for a minute. Crush in the garlic and add to the broccoli with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper and saut for a further minute. 10. Remove the salmon from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Use a serrated knife to cut into 4 portions and serve alongside the sauted broccoli and herbed potatoes.

Gordon Ramsay Cookalong Gordon's classic lasagne al forno


Serves 4 Ingredients

2 tbsp olive oil large onion, peeled 1 large carrot, peeled 2 cloves garlic, peeled 2 pinches dried oregano 300g minced beef 1 tbsp tomato pure 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 1 bay leaf 30ml (2 tbsp) red wine 1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes 50ml milk Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the sauce


25g butter 25g flour 300ml milk Pinch of ground nutmeg 60g Cheddar cheese, grated 30g Parmesan cheese, grated 6 sheets of 'non-cook' lasagne sheets

Gordon Ramsay Cookalong - Week 2 - Main For the salad


1 tsp Dijon mustard 1 tbsp white wine vinegar 2-3 tbsp olive oil Salt and pepper 1 x round lettuce head, rinsed and dried

Method: How to make Gordon's classic lasagne al forno 1. Pre-heat the oven to 225C. 2. Heat the olive oil in a hot pan. Grate the onion and carrot and crush the garlic before frying together. Season with the bay leaf, a pinch of oregano, Worcestershire sauce and a little salt and pepper. Allow the onion to soften before making a well in the centre of the pan. Place the mince in the middle of the pan and stir to break it up. Add the tomato puree and allow to cook out for 30 seconds. Continue until all the meat has browned nicely. Add the wine and cook off the alcohol before adding the tomatoes. Leave to simmer for a further 2-3 minutes. Finally add the milk, turn off the heat and set aside (watch Gordon's video on how to prepare bolognaise). 3. To make the cheese sauce, first melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the flour and using a wooden spoon, stir to form a paste. Over a gentle heat add a third of the milk, whisking to prevent any lumps forming. Add the rest of the milk a third at a time, whisking as you go. Season with salt and pepper and a pinch of ground nutmeg. Allow the sauce to cook out for another minute before adding the Cheddar cheese. Stir and remove from the heat (watch Gordon's video on how to make the best white sauce). 4. Spoon half of the meat sauce into the bottom of the baking dish and place pasta sheets on top (break the sheets if necessary to avoid any overlapping). Next, pour in just under half of the cheese sauce, and spread evenly using a spatula before spooning the remaining meat on top. Add the final layer of pasta and use the spatula to pour over the remaining cheese sauce. 5. Finish with the grated Parmesan and sprinkle with another pinch of oregano. Add a light seasoning of salt and pepper before cleaning the edges of the dish and placing in the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. 6. In the bottom of your salad bowl use a fork to whisk together the mustard, vinegar and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Carefully open the head of lettuce, season inside with salt and pepper. Upend the lettuce headfirst into the salad bowl. Holding the root, wipe the leaves around the bowl to coat in the vinaigrette. Twist the root and pull it out. Turn the dressed head of lettuce onto a large plate and gently open out. 7. Portion out the lasagne and serve alongside the salad.

Gordon Ramsay Cookalong Duck breast with cherry and port sauce and mashed potato recipe
Serves 4 Ingredients

4 duck breasts, about 225g each, skin on (Barbary preferably) Olive oil Salt and pepper

For the mashed potatoes

800g medium floury potatoes (e.g. Maris Piper), peeled and quartered

For the sauce


200ml port 200ml chicken stock Few sprigs of thyme 50g dried cherries 20g cold butter, cut into cubes

For the pak choi


2 x pak choi bulbs, leaves separated and washed 2 x garlic cloves, peeled 1 tbsp soy sauce

Gordon Ramsay Cookalong - Week 3 - Main Method: How to make duck breasts with dried cherry and port sauce and mashed potatoes 1. Place the peeled and chopped potatoes in a pan of cold water. Season with salt and cook with the lid on for 12-14 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Drain, and return briefly to the heat to dry them out. Mash the potatoes with a generous measure of olive oil - anywhere from 1-2 tablespoons, depending on the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm until ready to serve. 2. Sprinkle the duck breasts with salt and pepper and rub all over. Place a large frying pan over medium heat and add the duck breasts, skin side down. Fry for 4-5 minutes until most of the fat from under the skin has rendered down and the skin is golden brown. Turn the duck over and lightly brown the other side. Remove the duck from the pan and keep warm. 3. To make the sauce, drain any excess fat from the duck pan and deglaze with the port allow to bubble for 30 seconds to remove the alcohol. Add the duck back into the pan with the cherries and thyme. Pour in the chicken stock and bring to the boil. Lower the heat to simmering point and allow the sauce to bubble away until the mixture is reduced to a third. Remember to turn the duck occasionally to ensure it cooks evenly. Add the cold butter and shake the pan until the butter has melted and the sauce has thickened slightly. Remove from the heat, take the duck out to rest for approximately 3 minutes. 4. Place all the pak choi leaves in a large bowl (cut any large ones into half lengthways) and drizzle with olive oil, soy sauce and a grinding of pepper. Crush in the garlic and toss together in the bowl with the other ingredients. 5. Heat a separate frying pan until hot and saut the pak choi for 1-2 minutes, until just wilted. 6. Divide the pak choi among warm serving plates. Carve the duck breasts into three slices and arrange over the pak choi. Spoon the port and cherry sauce over and serve the mashed potatoes alongside. Watch Gordon's video on how to render and cook duck breasts

Gordon Ramsay Cookalong Pan-roasted scallops with tomato and herb salsa recipe
Serves 4 Ingredients

4 tbsp Olive oil 200g cherry tomatoes 80g pitted, drained black olives Salt and freshly ground black pepper bunch coriander, leaves only bunch basil leaves 1 lemon, juiced 12 scallops (hand dived if you can get them), coral removed.

Gordon Ramsay Cookalong Special - Starter Method: How to make pan-roasted scallops with tomato and herb salsa 1. First, place a small saucepan over a gentle heat and add 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Chop the cherry tomatoes in half and add to the oil. Add the pitted black olives, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and stir over a low heat for 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside. 2. Hold the stalks of the coriander and basil together and slice down with a sharp knife to shave off the leaves. Discard the stalks, gently roll the coriander and basil leaves into a ball and chop. Add the coriander and basil to the salsa and stir to combine. 3. Roll the lemon on a chopping board to soften it and release the juices and then chop in half. Add the juice of half a lemon to the pan, stir and set the salsa aside to allow the flavours to infuse. 4. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a high heat until smoking hot and then add one tablespoon of olive oil. Lay the scallops out on a board, pat dry with kitchen paper and then season one side with salt and pepper. 5. Think of the frying pan as a clock face and add the largest scallop (seasoned side down) in the twelve oclock position. Continue adding the scallops clockwise working your way round 1,2 3 etc until you get to 12 again. Season the unseasoned side of the scallops and after 1-2 minutes or when the underside is turning golden brown, with a palette knife or spatula, flip over the scallops starting with the scallop you placed in the twelve oclock position. Squeeze the other half of the lemon over the scallops and give the pan a good shake to ensure even cooking. 6. After 1-2 minutes or when the scallops are golden brown on all sides, tip the pan onto a plate lined with kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil. 7. To serve, lay out four small plates and place a large spoonful of the salsa in the middle of each plate, arrange 3 scallops on each plate and serve immediately.

Gordon Ramsay Cookalong Steak and chips with a rocket and parmesan salad recipe
Serves 4 Ingredients For the chips

4 large Desiree potatoes 2 tbsp Groundnut oil Salt and freshly ground black pepper A generous pinch chilli flakes

For the steak


4 sirloin steaks (approx 200g-250g each) Salt and freshly ground black pepper 2 tbsp groundnut oil 25g butter

For the salad


1 tbsp white wine vinegar 3 tbsp olive oil Salt and freshly ground black pepper 120g rocket 50g parmesan, shaved

Method: How to make steak and chips with a rocket and parmesan salad 1. To make the chips: preheat the oven to 220C/ Gas 7.

Gordon Ramsay Cookalong Special - Main 2. Fill a large pan with boiling water, add a pinch of salt and place over a high heat. Cut each potato in half lengthways and then place the cut side down onto the board. Cut each half potato into 1cm thick wedges. 3. Add the potato wedges to the boiling water, bring to the boil again and boil for 3 minutes. Drain in a colander and then place the colander sitting over the pan, off the heat, to allow the wedges to dry further. Add the groundnut oil, salt, pepper and chilli flakes and toss well to coat. 4. Tip the wedges into a large baking tray (big enough so that the wedges sit in one layer so they crisp up evenly) and shake the tray until they are evenly spread out. Place the tray in the oven and cook for 30 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Shake the tray once or twice during cooking to ensure even cooking. 5. To cook the steak: place one large or two smaller non-stick frying pans over a high heat and leave until smoking hot. 6. Place the steaks onto a large chopping board and if one needs to be cooked well done, roll it flatter with a rolling pin so that all the steaks can all go into the frying pan at the same time. Season the steaks on both sides with salt and black pepper and once the frying pans have reached temperature, add approximately two tablespoons of groundnut oil. 7. Carefully lay the steaks (the well done one first) in the hot frying pan. Tilt the pan away from you so that the fat is touching the side of the pan to ensure the fat is cooked and golden. Shake the pan to make sure the steaks arent sticking. Fry for 3 minutes on one side and then using tongs turn the steaks starting with the first steak you placed in the pan. Fry for 2 minutes and then add the butter to the pan. Spoon the melted butter over the steaks to baste them. Remove the rare steaks from the pan and set aside on to rest. 8. Leave the medium/ well done steak in the pan to cook for another minute. Remove the steaks from the pan and leave to rest for a few minutes on a large plate. Spoon the juices from the pan over the steaks to add extra flavour. 9. While the steaks are cooking, start making the salad. Pour the white wine vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper into a salad bowl and then whisk to combine. Place the salad servers together over the dressing, place the rocket on top and then using a vegetable peeler shave the parmesan onto the rocket. Leave until you are ready to serve and then toss. 10. To serve, lay out four plates, place a steak onto each plate, pour over the juices from the resting plate, divide the chips between the plates and add a spoonful of salad.
