If you’re a novice to online education, you may not have heard of MasterClass. Well, there’s an easy way to understand them: They’re the Netflix of online education. Because they’ve literally got the world’s most famous instructors teaching their expertise.

For example, Timbaland teaches producing and beat making, Alicia Keys teaches songwriting, Garry Kasparov teaches chess, Chris Hadfield teaches space exploration, Matthew Walker teaches the science of better sleep, Neil deGrasse Tyson teaches scientific thinking and so much more (really, there are nearly 50 courses all together).

What separates Masterclass from other online education courses isn’t just the famous names. It’s the quality of the videos. They’re incredible. You can easily binge-watch them all day. They’re easy-to-watch and you can actually learn valuable skills while you’re watching them.

How much does MasterClass cost?

If you want to consume just one class, it will set you back $90. But MasterClass also offers an All-Access Pass that gives you unlimited access to every class for $180 per year and also Star Chef Gordon Ramsay Course On Masterclass reviews. They’ve also got a money-back guarantee. If you’re not satisfied within 30 days, you can get a full refund. I have the All-Acess Pass option as I originally signed up for the writing courses. It’s completely up to you though, obviously.

A Look Inside Chef’s Ramsay Classes:

So Ramsay and the crew at MasterClass have put together 20 lessons. Firstly, they go over the basics of cooking such as how to create an effective kitchen layout, what tools you need, and then it gets into the nuts and bolts of different types of ingredients, how they’ll enhance your meals, and some recipes for meals you can make.

Personally, I found the mastering ingredients lessons incredibly useful. All the meals I’ve cooked in my life have been really bland. Now they’re ridiculously tasty (even if I say so myself).

Each lesson runs for about 25 minutes. Actually this is what I’ve loved about MasterClass in general. 25 minutes feels like the perfect length of time where you don’t lose concentration and you remain entertained and focused.

What’s more, every lesson also comes with a workbook. These workbooks summarize the key points (this makes it way easier to learn) and gives you assignments to undertake as well. There’s actually a heap of information in these workbooks.

I suggest trying to complete the assignments. After all, taking action is really the best way to cement the lessons in your mind.

Furthermore, there is also a “lesson discussion session” where students share comments and insights. This is pretty cool. If you have a problem, you can reach out and you’ll generally get a helpful answer.

One surprising feature that I love about MasterClass is the “Office Hours” feature. This is where students can ask questions and Gordon Ramsay will reply himself (I’m not joking).

Of course, he won’t reply to everyone, but if you’re lucky, he might just answer yours if you ask the right question. It really makes it feel personal like he is teaching you one-on-one.

Not only does he provide easy-to-understand cooking advice in his replies, but he also shares some great life advice that we’d all benefit from hearing. It’s definitely an added bonus.

Another cool feature about MasterClass is that you’ll also get access to something called The Hub. This is a discussion area where the community talks about different topics. I haven’t participated in this yet, but I’d imagine it could be useful if you ask the right questions.

The lessons themselves
Now that you know the general structure of how Gordon Ramsay’s MasterClass works, let’s dive deep into the lessons themselves.

As I’ve mentioned before, the quality of the videos will blow away.

But what about the actual content?

If you’ve seen Gordon Ramsay on TV before, you might get the impression that he’s a little aggressive and perhaps even a little crass.

But I actually didn’t see any of this in the lessons. Instead, he was personable, practical, charismatic, and he showed a side of himself that you don’t usually associate with him.

From the very get-go, it feels like he is having a conversation with you. He’s very down-to-earth and his passion for cooking shines through.

I’ll admit, I’ve never really been interested in cooking, but Gordon’s passion for the craft really rubbed off on me. I have a different appreciation for cooking now.

Now in terms of the content, the course covers everything to do with cooking (that I’m aware of).

It talks about what tools to use, where to place your refrigerator, how to slice onions and vegetables, what ingredients go with what, how long to cook meat for, how to cook some delicious meals, and more.

The lessons go fairly fast-paced as they only go for 25 minutes. He has a lot of knowledge to give so you might find yourself rewinding the lesson to catch up with what he said (especially if you’re cooking at the same time).

But this is what’s great about an online class because you can go at your own pace.

In the videos, they also put additional tips in the videos in case it isn’t clear. That makes it a lot easier to follow and understand.

I also advise using subtitles as well. I find that I can understand the message a lot better as I catch every word.
