HBG News: Gordon Ramsay's Home Cooking

gGordon Ramsay is a household name thanks to his fouled mouth, explosive personality on shows like Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, Masterchef and Hell’s Kitchen. He is the black sheep of the culinary reality TV world, but off the small screen he is also a highly regarded chef.  In 2006, he was awarded an OBE for services to the industry, and is one of only four chefs in the UK to maintain three Michelin stars. Now, having mastered both the realms of the London restaurant scene and American television, Ramsay, is releasing another cookbook to further prove that he is one of the masters of his craft. His cookbook, "Gordon Ramsay's Home Cooking: Everything You Need to Know to Make Fabulous Food," will be available this April and will provide simple, straightforward cooking lessons for beginners to experienced cooks.

Each chapter will focus on a different area of cooking—from classics to how to cook with spice, through baking, and roasting, and will include helpful sections on how to prep, clean and pan fry like a pro! Readers will learn how to create scrumptious, vibrant and drool-worthy dishes like miso braised salmon fillet with Asian vegetables, Pork and Bacon slider with homemade BBQ sauce, Wild Mushroom Risotto Arrancini, and Baked Lemon Cheesecake with Raspberries. Nom Nom Nom!

Crammed with delicious recipes, and invaluable tips, Gordon Ramsay's Home Cooking is the perfect guide to creating amazing meals at home. We cannot wait for its release!

Mississippi Mud Pie, My Oh My

Monkey Bubble Bread...Boston Cream Pie...Heartland Turtle Bars...Buttermilk Doughnuts...  I don't know about you, but these desserts take me back to a time when I was young, life was slow and desserts were oh so fun!  If you're in the mood for a trip down memory lane, you and your taste buds should check out Baked Explorations: Classic American Desserts Reinvented by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito (Stewart Tabori & Chang, $35.95).  The authors take liberties on some classics - but without making them too precious which seems to be the unfortunate trend these days.  As far as I'm concerned, this gorgeous new tome on all things baked (ahem) truly takes the cake.  If you don't believe me, check out this review in the Globe and Mail, together we should have you convinced.

Can you think of one special dessert that with a forkful, can flood you with memories from your childhood?  Tell us about it for a chance to win your very own copy of Baked Explorations!
