Gordon Ramsay's Just Desserts (2nd Hand Softback)
Here, Gordon Ramsay aims to demystify the art of dessert-making.
There are the basic building blocks - fruits, ices and creams, mousses and soufflés, crepes and batters - that can be served alone for everyday meals or in combination to impress.
Then come the stand-alone dishes - homely favourites and special-occasion desserts - and a final chapter on vital accompaniments - biscuits, sponges and meringues.
Throughout the book Gordon offers the benefit of his short cuts and tricks of the trade.
Gordon Ramsay's Just Desserts gives readers and cooks the in-house patisseries of his critically acclaimed London restaurants. His methods are classical, his desserts extraordinary, and his flair for teaching the basic building blocks for all 100 of these delicious recipes makes every masterpiece completely achievable.
From the first few chapters dealing with simpler methods, like roasting fruit to draw out their natural essence or rolling out classic cookies, Gordon paces cooks, step-by-step, through the more delicate pastry techniques, expanding their range with the confidence to whip soufflés that defy gravity.
Desserts are never mandatory, but Gordon's mission to share his passion for flavour makes these treats simply irresistible.

"Delish! Gordon Ramsay's recipes involves flavours of all seasons which are delicately amalgamated to produce the most exquisite sights and tastes that seduce the inner soul. I'm so impressed by how the desserts turn out - my guests always loved the tartlets, mousse and ice-cream and I know that they will always be back for more!" - Google Reviews
"Awesome book. Full of gorgeous colour pictures. Great size for a cookbook. Has lots of good recipes but also tips and techniques for basics like coulis and pastry that can be used in loads of other recipes. Simple and well thought out. Great for the everyday cook but also full of inspiring flavours and ideas for the more avid gourmet." - Goodreads Review.
