I haven’t really tried many Gordon Ramsay recipes and the Big Caesar Salad Recipe was developed for his homecooking programme. It’s definitely the best recipe I have tried so far and has my highest review score rating of 7.75/10
Sourdough, Felippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Waitrose Parmigiano Reggiano, Waitrose essential Romaine Hearts, Waitrose Chicken Breast Fillets, Egg Yolk, Waitrose Essential Red Wine Vinegar, Maille Dijon Mustard, John West Anchovy Fillets in Olive Oil, Fresh garlic clove, Fresh Lemon Juice
Level of difficulty
There was nothing complicated about the recipe, although there were quite a few elements to juggle, to pull it all together. The recipe specifies that olive oil should be added until the mixture emulsifies, if you don’t know what this means then you might have difficulties.
Time taken to prepare
This took about 30 minutes to prepare, mainly because there is lots going on. It’s definitely worth taking the time with this recipe, as it really adds to the flavours.
The croutons were great in this recipe, probably the best recipe for croutons so far. Cooking the chicken this way is quick and still leaves the chicken very juicy. The dressing was more of a mayonnaise than a caesar and the vinegar was quite distinctive. The lemon juice should be used sparingly.
I really enjoyed this recipe. There was a lot to do, but it is well worth it, if you have the time. The recipe does contain raw egg yolk, so probably best avoid it if your pregnant. I would definitely try it again.
