Gordon Ramsay’s ‘perfect’ pasta recipe has divided his fans.
It all started when the British chef took to his YouTube series Cooking Basics and said he had made it super simple for pasta-lovers to have the dish within just minutes.
In the video, the 54-year-old started off by saying: “Pasta – a great budget basic to keep in the cupboard.
“It can be easily undercooked or overcooked. Here’s how to do it properly.”
The Hell’s Kitchen star then got out a large pan and added tons of water to it, ensuring the pasta ‘cooked evenly’.
To give it some seasoning, Ramsay added salt and then a large pouring of olive oil. He explained that this would prevent the pasta from sticking together. He then added the past to the pan and allowed it to boil for ‘three to four minutes’.
When the pasta was ready, Ramsay pulled at a single strand and commented: “Al dente. Not a bite, not a strong bite but just really nice and firm inside. Definitely not crunchy.”
Since being uploaded, the clip has accumulated over 2million viewers.
However, many people have commented on the video, arguing that the measurements Ramsay advised seemed a little excessive to say the least.
One person said: “‘Gordon taking a bath: Water, in. Olive oil, in. Gordon, in.”
Another added: “‘Don’t add lots of flour…’ Adds flour four times.” “*Tablespoon of olive oil* pours half a bottle.”
However, some people said it looked ‘perfect’ just the way Ramsay made it.
“His excitement is palpable when he talks about the pasta, love it!” a viewer gushed.
Another enthused: “I made this for my brother and… HE LOVES IT SO MUCH.”
