Vanilla Cheesecake with Berry Compote - Gordon Ramsay
Gordon Ramsay's recipe for Vanilla Cheesecake with Berry Compote involves a combination of ingredients including graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, sugar, cream cheese, vanilla extract, eggs, sour cream, all-purpose flour, and lemon zest. The recipe involves preheating the oven to 325°F (160°C) and greasing a 9-inch springform pan. The crust is formed by mixing graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar in a medium bowl. The cream cheese is then beaten until smooth, then gradually added to the sugar, vanilla extract, and eggs. The sour cream, flour, and lemon zest are then mixed together.

The cheesecake batter is then poured over the crust and baked for 55-60 minutes, or until the center is set but slightly jiggly. The cheesecake is then left to cool in the oven with the door slightly open for 1 hour. After cooling, the cheesecake is refrigerated for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.

The berry compote is made by combining mixed berries, sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract in a medium saucepan. The mixture thickens slightly after cooking, and the vanilla extract is added. The compote is then cooled to room temperature before serving.

After the cheesecake has chilled, it is placed on a serving platter and topped with the berry compote, allowing some to drizzle down the sides. The dessert is a delightful combination of the rich, creamy texture of the cheesecake with the tart and sweet flavors of the berry compote.

- 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Suzette Sauce:

Baked Alaska is a classic dessert that combines cake, ice cream, and meringue. This recipe is inspired by Gordon Ramsay's style, focusing on high-quality ingredients and precise techniques. The Cake Base includes 1 cup of granulated sugar, 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup of unsalted butter, 2 large eggs, 1/2 cup of milk, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, and 1/4 tsp salt.

For the Ice Cream Layer, use 1 quart of your favorite ice cream (e.g., vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry) and 4 large egg whites. For the Meringue, use 4 large egg whites, 1 cup of granulated sugar, 1/4 tsp cream of tartar, and 1 tsp vanilla extract.

To prepare the Cake Base, preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), grease and flour an 8-inch round cake pan, and mix dry ingredients together. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Assemble the Baked Alaska by shaping the ice cream, freezing it solid, and placing the cooled cake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form, then add sugar, one tablespoon at a time, and beat in vanilla extract.

Finally, unmold the ice cream and cover it with the meringue, ensuring it's completely covered and sealed. Torch the meringue evenly with a kitchen torch or bake it at 450°F (230°C) for 3-5 minutes, watching carefully to avoid burning. Serve immediately for the best experience.

Chef Gordon Ramsay's Apple Tart with Caramel Ice Cream is a delicious dessert that combines the sweetness of apples with the richness of caramel ice cream. The pastry ingredients include 250g plain flour, 125g unsalted butter, 90g icing sugar, 1 large egg, and 1 tbsp cold water. The filling includes 6 large Granny Smith apples, 50g unsalted butter, 50g caster sugar, 1 vanilla pod, juice of 1 lemon, and 2 tbsp Calvados (optional).

To make the pastry, sift the flour and icing sugar into a large bowl, rub in the diced butter, and mix in the beaten egg and water to form a dough. Knead briefly until smooth, wrap in cling film, and chill for at least 30 minutes. In a large frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat, add the sugar, and cook until the apples are softened and caramelized. If using Calvados, cook for another minute.

Assemble the tart by preheating the oven to 180°C (350°F), rolling out the pastry on a floured surface, and lining a tart tin with it. Line the pastry with baking paper and fill with baking beans. Bake blind for 15 minutes, then remove the paper and beans and bake for another 5-10 minutes until the base is golden and crisp. Arrange the caramelized apple slices in the tart shell.

To make the caramel ice cream, heat the sugar over medium heat until it turns a deep amber color. Carefully add the cream, stirring continuously until smooth. In a separate saucepan, heat the milk and vanilla seeds until just boiling, then whisk the egg yolks until pale and thick. Gradually pour the hot milk into the egg yolks, whisking constantly.

Combine the egg and milk mixture back into the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Pour the caramel into the custard and mix well. Strain the mixture through a sieve and let cool.

Freeze the ice cream mixture in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer the mixture to a container and freeze until firm. Serve the warm apple tart with a generous scoop of caramel ice cream on the side for a delightful combination of flavors and textures.#food #foodporn #foodie #instafood #foodphotography #foodstagram #yummy #foodblogger #foodlover #instagood #love #delicious #follow #like #healthyfood #homemade #dinner #foodgasm #tasty #photooftheday #foodies #restaurant #cooking #lunch #picoftheday #bhfyp #foodpics #instagram #healthy #chef

SRI LANKAN SAPPHIRES | SRI LANKAN GEMS | INSIDE A GEM MINE | BLUE SAPPHIRE | SAPPHIRE | GEMSTONES

Welcome to our channel where we explore the fascinating world of Sri Lankan Sapphires! In this video, join us as we take you inside a gem mine in Sri Lanka, known for its stunning sapphires.

Sri Lankan sapphires are renowned globally for their exceptional quality and vibrant hues. These gemstones are primarily mined in the Ratnapura district, known as the "City of Gems," situated in the southern part of Sri Lanka. The region has a rich history of sapphire mining, dating back over 2,500 years.

Key characteristics of Sri Lankan sapphires include their remarkable color range, which spans from deep blue to cornflower blue, as well as shades of pink, purple, yellow, green, and orange. The intensity and clarity of these colors make Sri Lankan sapphires highly desirable in the gemstone market.

Sri Lanka's geological conditions contribute to the formation of high-quality sapphires. The island's metamorphic rocks provide an ideal environment for the crystallization of corundum, the mineral from which sapphires derive their color.

The traditional mining methods used in Sri Lanka involve artisanal techniques such as hand digging and panning in riverbeds, allowing miners to carefully extract gemstones without causing significant environmental damage.

Sri Lankan sapphires are often subjected to heat treatment to enhance their color and clarity. This treatment is accepted within the industry and does not significantly diminish the value of the gemstone, as long as it is disclosed transparently to buyers.

The demand for Sri Lankan sapphires continues to grow due to their exceptional beauty and rarity. They are frequently used in high-end jewelry pieces, including engagement rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets.

In recent years, Sri Lanka has made efforts to modernize its gemstone industry, improve mining practices, and ensure ethical sourcing. This includes initiatives to promote fair labor practices, environmental sustainability, and the prevention of illegal mining activities.
