Gordon Ramsay has won many accolades, as well as avid fans of his restaurant, books and television shows. As seen in the July/August 2007 issue of Brides, the top chef picks a delicious winter main to inspire you; why not try duck breasts with blackcurrant sauce and gratin dauphinoise? Ramsay says: "A combination of fresh, seasonal ingredients is the key to a successful and balanced winter menu".
