I think he explains things really well and makes it accessible for people of all levels. I've picked up lots of tips from watching his basics videos, stuff that you wouldn't pick up from reading a recipe.Memes aside, Gordon Ramsay is really good at explaining a dish with incredible brevity. I'll give this a shot.
My favorite is his steak video.
Two and a half minutes and has all you really need to know not to fuck up steak any more.
My favorite tip from this that I now never skip is starting by searing the side of the steak enough to render a bit of the fat, so that you can then fry it in its own fat.
