    Recommend not adding oil to the water. More work to clean the pot! Add the oil to the cooked pasta in the bowl.

    No, no, no
    Non serve a nulla mettere olio nell’acqua di cottura. È uno spreco alimentare !!!!!
    L’ olio si usa solo per condire la pasta quando è cotta
    I tempi di cottura sono, di solito, indicati sulla confezione della pasta
    E, buon appetito a tutti 😋

    I can easily agree with the whole easy to overcook or undercook bit when it comes to making Angel Hair. Never did try pepper on my pasta, but oil and salt were always present in the preparation.
    Also is it just me or does anyone else just fully soak the pasta when adding it to the bowl? I’ve had people badmouth my practice, but honestly it is so it cooks evenly, not overly soft at one end and firmer at another.

    For everybody losing their shit about the oil-- he's cooking capellini, not papardelle. Even if you get a hand made bronze die cut capellini it's just not going to have the surface texture of the larger pastas that gets "fuzzy" and makes the sauce stick. In this case, there's so much more surface area because of how small the diameter of capellini it's probably fine to use some oil because it's gonna take a lot more sauce anyways. Gordon probably does so here because he's used to working in a kitchen where the convenience of not having to babysit pasta can make a world of difference on your multitasking tap.

    I love how everyone thinks he’s on drugs or some sort of stimulant but if you actually work In a kitchen it’s actuallly reallly fast paced. He’s probably jittery because he’s worked so long at a fast pace that it’s probably weird for him to work like this with “ all the tine in the world” .

    notice no running cold water over the noodles. You have to do that if you aren't serving it right then as Ramsay is. If you don't cool the noodles before seasoning them they will continue to cook and angel hair cooks so quickly it will turn to a sticky mess quickly unless the pasta is going to be instantly plated. Ramsay is a restaurant chef not a family home kitchen cook.

  • Tony Lawlor
    Tony Lawlor 18 days ago

    You want the pasta to be sticky so that the sauce sticks to the pasta when you are eating say a bolognese sauce with it. I am not Italian but even I know putting oil in the water is just plain stupid.

    allora l'olio serve forse per non fare attaccare la pasta...è un trucco per fare separare i capelli d'angelo in modo in teoria l'olio d'oliva non s dovrebbe usare magari meglio usare l'olio di semi che non invade tanto il gusto ma ne basta poco olio un quarto di cucchiaio nell' acqua di cottura

    Per carità divina, mettere l'olio nell'acqua mentre bolle è inutile, per il condimento serve una pentola a parte in cui si fa soffriggere il sugo, oppure aggiungere condimenti come il pesto direttamente nel recipiente in cui la si serve!!!

    guys, pasta is one of gordon's specialities. He has 17 michelin stars and extremely high standards, and has been cooking for over 20 years professionally. He has travelled all over the world to learn new cuisines to be authentic. You arent the only country to cook pasta dishes. Grow tf up. If everything was dome the same way as it was first made, we wouldnt have any new invented dishes or anything original. grow up.
