I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Cookery Course by Gordon Ramsay

Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Cookery Course - Gordon Ramsay

This book has some great looking recipes (we've only tried one so far, the rolled pork loin with Manchego and Membrillo), but it doesn't quite have the relaxed attitude that the accompanying show has.  In the show Ramsay seems to be all about "don't worry too much" and if you don't have quite the right utensils or ingredients you can still manage, but the book is more like the Ramsay I know from his previous shows - strict (in that cheffy way that Jamie or Nigella don't have) with the way things must be done - the way to chop an onion, the correct knife to use etc.  The book is what I expect from Ramsay, watching the show is a bit weird because he doesn't seem like himself.
