I can remember the first time I heard that top Celebrity Chef Gordon Ramsay was going to be doing a show about cooking with amateurs. They were going to get a load of “celebrities” and get them to work in a professional kitchen. Gordon Ramsay was not that well known at the time apart from an infamous appearance on the Britain’s most feared Bosses. This was a short sequence at the end of the program where Gordon was seen as the worst offender. He lambasted his staff constantly but, they respected him and put up with it because he was brilliant, and they were all learning so much.
Once you’ve finished polishing the shelves of your beautifully appointed new home bar, the next task you’ll be eager to complete is to fill them with a stylish selection of spirits that are sure to impress your first batch of guests. Building up an extensive collection that includes less familiar liqueurs such as green chartreuse, can take time so concentrate on a basic core of versatile favourites that van be enjoyed on their own or as part of a cocktail.
