Share-A-Chef Wednesday


Happy Hump Day! I hope you all are doing well and enjoying the fact that the week is almost OVER!! Lately, I have been enjoying recipes that include apples and pumpkins since they are my favorite foods to bake with during the Fall. Recently my brother mentioned a new Chef to me and I figured I would share him with all of you this week. His name is "Gordon Ramsay" and I am sure ALL of you have heard of him. Gordon Ramsay was brought up in Stratford-Upon-Avon, England. He initially was going to be a football star but an injury put an end to that dream. So then he decided to go back to school to take a course in Hotel Management. With his exceptional talent and hard work Ramsay was able to train with some of the world's leading chefs that included, Albert Roux and Marco Pierre White. In 1993, Ramsay became a chef in London and years later Ramsay was able to open a string of successful restaurants across the world.

Ramsay also has become a television star with FOUR top-rated shows that air in more than 200 territories worldwide such as Hells Kitchen, MasterChef, and Hotel Hell! In 2014 Ramsay and his wife, Tana, set  up the Gordon Ramsay Foundation to make a difference to charities that are important to them.

This week I wanted to share with all of you his amazing recipe for Apple Crumble. It is perfect for this time of year and it's something I will be trying very soon. 

What are you guys cooking this week?

Gordon Ramsay’s Apple Crumble
Ingredients
  • 6 tbsp caster sugar
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1 vanilla pod, seeds only
  • 6 apples, cored but not peeled, 3 of them grated, 3 cut into chunks
  • 3 tbsp dried cranberries
  • Zest of 1 lemon, juice of ½
  • FOR THE CRUMBLE TOPPING:
  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp demerara sugar
  • 50g butter, chilled and cubed
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp nutty granola or muesli
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6.
  2. Heat a small hob-proof baking dish, add the caster sugar and heat for about 5 minutes until it caramelises. Add the cinnamon, vanilla seeds and grated apples and cook for 1–2 minutes. Stir in the apple chunks, then mix in the cranberries, lemon zest and juice. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. To make the topping, place the flour, sugar, butter and cinnamon in a bowl and rub together with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the granola and mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Scatter the crumble topping over the fruit and heat the dish again on the hob. Once the apple mixture is bubbling, transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 12–14 minutes until the topping is a deep golden colour. Remove and serve warm.

Happy Friday Everyone! We are so excited for the weekend to arrive because we will be celebrating our little girl on Saturday! She officially turns 1 on Monday, July 31 but we are celebrating a few days earlier. I can't even believe that a year has gone by already and we are actually thinking about baby number 2! AHHH! I have been so blessed to be able to stay home with Lilly and see her grow and learn new things every day! We are in love with our little miracle and we can't wait to celebrate her tomorrow! 
I hope that all of you have big and exciting plans for the weekend !
