Cook the perfect pasta with Gordon Ramsay
Gordon Ramsay, multi-Michelin starred chef and star of the small screen, will teach the tricks of the trade!
Today we will enter in his kitchen to learn how to cook the perfect angel hair pasta. Are you at the stove? All right!
Of ancient origins, the pasta is the specialty arguably best known and exported of Italy: long is its history and the stories related to it.
For an Italian may seem insulting him explain the baking of national dish and yet the British three-star Michelin chef, Gordon Ramsay, tells us his opinion on how to cook it in the best way, with a very special type of pasta: angel hair.
First he gets a large pan of water and brings it to the boil. So far, so easy! Then, he seasons the water with a generous amount of salt.
He then adds olive oil to the water to stop the pasta from sticking together. Then he brings the water to a "rolling boil", this also stops the pasta from clumping into a ball.
Set a timer, cook the pasta and then test it by eating a piece. It should be 'al dente', or "to the tooth" meaning it shouldn't be soggy, but have a little bite to it without being crunchy.
Drain the pasta well to get rid of the starchy water and then season with salt and pepper and drizzle over a little olive oil. Then add it to the sauce of your choice.
