Gordon said: "Over the past 25 years I have been lucky enough to work with some of the best chefs in the world, from the amazing Roux brothers to Guy Savoy and Joel Robuchon. I have travelled, opened restaurants from London to LA to the Middle East and earned a number of Michelin Stars. I now want to get back to basics - strip away all the complexity, all the hard graft and show you how to cook amazing food with ease at home. I want to give the home cook the confidence and inspiration to hit the stoves and get cooking. Whether you love cooking already or you're starting from scratch, this programme is all about simple, accessible modern recipes that still have an edge and will impress.

The more you cook, the more confident you will become, and the more time you will want to spend in the kitchen. Good luck and most of all, enjoy it!"

Gordon's top kitchen tips:
• Peeling garlic: For one clove, crush with the back of a knife and the skin comes off easily. For a whole head, crush, separate the cloves into a bowl, cover and shake it hard for 10 seconds then simply pick out the peeled cloves.
• Never add salt to eggs before cooking them because it ruins the texture and dulls the colour. Instead save your seasoning to the very end.
• When cooking meat make sure it's at room temperature before you begin. If you cook it straight from the fridge, the muscle fibres will be tight, resulting in touch meat. Always let it rest afterwards so it relaxes becoming tender and juicy.
• How to de-seed a chilli: Hold the chilli upright between your palms and rub it, this will release the seeds. Tap the chilli on the chopping board. Cut the top off, turn it upside down and the seeds will fall out easily.
