Las Vegas: ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ winner is head chef at Ramsay eatery

“When it comes to hot restaurants in Las Vegas, Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris is one of the hottest. Diners may not see Chef Ramsay but they could see Christina Wilson, who won a year’s contract as the steakhouse’s head chef for her first-place finish on Season 10 of “Hell’s Kitchen.”

In honor of her victory over 18 other competitors, the restaurant is now serving what it calls the Hell’s Kitchen Limited Edition Tasting Menu. That’s quite a mouthful, but not nearly as palatable as the five-course dinner itself.

Ramsay’s British roots are evident throughout the meal. It begins with a Scotch egg made with Berkshire pork sausage and red wine-braised cabbage. Beef Wellington, Ramsay’s signature dish, is served as the third course.

The prix-fixe menu costs $145 per person; wine pairings are an additional $75 per person. The price includes a souvenir folder with an autographed photo of Wilson alongside Ramsay and executive chef Kevin Hee.

Wilson took up her new post within days of the airing of the program’s final segment, although that was more than a year after the reality show had finished filming.

“Everybody that was part of the final episode for 15 months knew who won and how it went down that night,” Wilson said. “We just, under contract, weren’t allowed to say anything.”

Because she couldn’t start her new job until after that episode aired, Wilson returned to Philadelphia to work, knowing she wouldn’t be in the job very long.

“It was hard,” she said. “I literally had to forget it ever happened. I tried really hard not to think about it.”

Gordon Ramsay’s Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb ? F Word Series One

Gordon Ramsay made this tasty looking rack of lamb on the first episode of the first season of The F Word[1]. Like many of Gordon’s recipes, the primary herb ingredients are rosemary, thyme and garlic. This is sure to be a scrumptious meal for fans of Chef Ramsay’s cooking.

Ingredients for the Lamb:

  • 2 large racks of Lamb cut in half with 3 bones per serving
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive Oil

Ingredients for the Crust:

  • 4 slices of stale bread made into crumbs.
  • 7 Tbs. grated parmesan (roughly 1/2 a cup)
  • Sprig parsley
  • Sprig thyme
  • Sprig coriander
  • Sprig rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons English mustard (or sub with dijon)
  • splash of olive oil

Preparing the Lamb:

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. It should actually be 392 degrees, but don’t worry about getting that technical unless you have a digital oven.

Place lamb on cutting board fat side up. Lightly score the fat layer with a sharp knife. Next, generously sprinkle the lamb with salt and pepper. Mop up the excess seasoning with the rack of lamb, ensuring it’s thoroughly coated.

Heat some olive oil in an oven safe pan. Seal the lamb by holding each side in the oil long enough to develop color (careful not to burn your hands). Gordon Ramsay says, “it’s simple mathematics, no color, equals no taste”. Quite simple indeed! Make sure you brown that lamb.

Transfer the pan with the lamb into the oven and bake for 7-8 minutes. Prepare the crust while the lamb is cooking.

Preparing the Crust:

Place  all of the ingredients for the crust except the mustard into a blender and pulse several times until it looks nice and green. Make sure you don’t over do it with the olive oil, just a splash.

Pour the mixture into a deep dish (bowl or plate) and set aside.

Putting it All Together:

Remove the lamb from the oven and brush generously with mustard. Dip the lamb into the crust mixture coating it completely. Dip several times to ensure an even coating. Allow meat to rest for a bit.

Place it back into the oven for 3-4 minutes when you’re ready to serve.

Gordon serves the lamb with potatoes boulangère and courgettes provençal, but you can serve with anything you find fitting. I’ll gladly post the recipe for the side dishes if someone wants it. Just ask for it in a comment.

Let me know how this recipe turns out for you.

EDIT: I’ve added one of the side dishes, Gordon Ramsay’s Potatoes Boulangère[2]. I will add the other soon and update this post with it’s link.
