SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MasterClass, the premier education platform, introduces multi-Michelin star and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay for the company's first cooking course. Pre-enrollment opens today at www.masterclass.com/gr.
With more than 30 restaurants across the globe, Gordon Ramsay reigns as one of the world's most successful chefs, and has become a star of the small screen both in the US and internationally with top-rated shows airing in more than 200 territories worldwide including MasterChef, MasterChef Junior, and Hell's Kitchen.
In this MasterClass, Ramsay will teach chefs and home cooks how to elevate their own home cooking to Michelin Star quality through over 20 in-depth, instructive, and visually stunning lessons. Ramsay dives deep into picking ingredients, knife skills, how to build great dishes and presentation, taking you through his own recipes for everything from lobster ravioli to beef wellington. Ramsay's MasterClass gives students the knowledge they need to make even the most basic food great.
Directed by Davis Guggenheim (Academy Award winner; An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman, It Might Get Loud and He Named Me Malala), with Adam Bricker as the Director of Photography (Chef's Table), Gordon Ramsay's MasterClass is like no other cooking class available. Through the cinematography, depth of instruction, and Ramsay's direct dialogue, students will feel like they're with Ramsay in his kitchen as they learn his techniques and unique approach to cooking along with exclusive new recipes and interactive assignments.
"Every chef knows you can't rush teaching the fundamentals of why food is prepared and cooked a certain way," says Ramsay. "Making this class has allowed me to go back to my roots and educate those hungry to learn all the dimensions from start to finish of a perfect dish. This isn't theatre. I want to empower students to understand what they're doing, why they're doing it, and how they can expand their knowledge and skills in the kitchen. "
MasterClass was created to give anyone the ability to gain the wisdom and knowledge of the world's best creators. The current roster of courses includes Christina Aguilera (singing), Kevin Spacey (acting), Usher (performance), Serena Williams (tennis), James Patterson (writing), Dustin Hoffman (acting), Aaron Sorkin (screenwriting) and Werner Herzog (filmmaking), Hans Zimmer (film scoring) and Deadmau5 (electronic music production).
San Francisco-based MasterClass was founded by David Rogier and Aaron Rasmussen on the idea that everyone should have access to genius. MasterClass makes it possible for anyone with an Internet connection to learn from the best through immersive online classes from the world's greatest authors, actors, performers, athletes, filmmakers, and more.
