Gordon Ramsay needs no introduction, but still, if his name seems only slightly familiar to you, here are a few quick facts: Gordon Ramsay is one of the world’s most popular chefs who rose to fame in the UK. His Gordon Ramsay Restaurants have received numerous Michelin stars over the last few decades and the chef himself has made a huge name due to shows like Boling Point and Hell’s Kitchen. But apart from managing restaurants and doing cooking shows, Gordon Ramsay finds time to make simple videos with cooking tips even a beginner can follow.

How to Chop an Onion

Chopping an onion seems like the most ordinary thing in the world, but there’s always an easier way to do it. Gordon Ramsay offers a little trick that will make chopping it especially easy – all you need to do is leave the onion’s root intact! Then chop the onion in two and do a few more layers of chopping of each half as shown in the video. As a result, the pieces of onion don’t go flying all over the board and you get to create neat onion pieces.

How to Cook Rice

If you want to perfect your rice-cooking skills here are a few tips you should follow. Firstly, add all the spices and flavours before you cook the rice and not afterwards as it will ruin the rice’s texture. Gordon Ramsay offers to add cardamom pods, anise stars, and some salt to make the flavor more interesting. Secondly, it’s more about steaming the rice than actually boiling it. You should give it a go!

How to Cook Pasta

Cooking pasta may seem like an easy task, but making it perfect is not something everyone can do. To cook pasta properly you need to take a large pan, fill it with enough water, add seasoning, and then add some olive oil to make sure that the pasta doesn’t stick while you cook it. Boil the water mixed with oil, add thin pasta and cook it for up to four minutes (the timing might differ depending on the type of pasta you’re cooking). Drain the pasta, add more seasoning and a spoon of olive oil to keep it from sticking together.
