Gordon Ramsay shares his passion for cooking with you

Gordon Ramsay, chef, restaurateur, and recipient of 6 Michelin stars stopped by AOL's BUILD Series to dish on his new endeavors including his very own Masterclass! Masterclass, is an online platform filled with experts like Ramsay who teach you the skills (e.g. cooking) you desire to learn.

Ramsay was very excited to launch his new cooking program called 'Masterclass: Gordon Ramsay Teaches Cooking' and he shared with us a little about what it entailed and what it meant to him personally.

"When they (Masterclass founders: David Rogier and Aaron Rasmussen) approached me saying, 'Look, we like for you to be the first of a chef globally to do such a thing', I said 'you don't watch television?' (laughs). But for me it was a chance to have an opportunity to be at my best, what makes me happy the most, and more importantly what made me the chef I am today!"

Ramsay seized this opportunity to hone his mentoring skills. The unselfish chef admitted that he wanted to pass the knowledge he learned on to others all around the world. This program gave him the chance to show off the tender side of his personality, the chance to see his passionate love of cooking instead of the dramatized persona of his as seen on his hit shows like the fiery 'Hell's Kitchen' or the crazy roller coaster of a ride that is 'Kitchen Nightmares'.

"Masterclass was all about going back to the very beginning and telling the story then giving the insight to how we traveled from braising the most amazing ox tail to using the cheapest fish on the planet and elevating it to something magical. It was shot at home [and] I was very comfortable. It was an incredible journey! I never had that intimacy at home with a director -- not baring my soul, just finding out the truth behind the cooking."

When it comes to one of Ramsay's Masterclass lessons, it's important for aspiring cooks to use fresh ingredients and make their own food from scratch. Ramsay was adamant during the interview in explaining how to make your own pasta. He revealed to us that simply making your own pasta is "cheap to make, incredibly rewarding and diverse".

All it [Masterclass] takes is for you to commit to the time to learn from Ramsay, let's say an hour or two for once or twice per week and you too can make delicious meals in the comforts of your own home!

Are you ready to get out of your comfort zone and learn from one of the best chefs in the world? Start your cooking journey with Gordon Ramsay on Masterclass today!
