Hi. This is my life.
'I love cooking.'
They smell amazing.
'My dad is a chef.
'But I think I'm already better than him.'
My name is Matilda Ramsay, but people usually call me Tilly.
Mum. She wears the trousers and is the only one Dad is afraid of.
I'm loving their hair.
Big sister Megan.
'She's all grown up now and crazy to get on with life.'
Jack. He's so good at sport, he'll be playing for Britain soon.
This is Holly.
She is determined to be the greatest fashion designer of her generation.
Even though he's hard on the outside,
-he's soft and mushy on the inside.
And he's QUITE a good cook, too.
Er, excuse me! How about VERY?
When you're the youngest, you have to fight to get noticed,
so that's why I love to cook up a storm.
This is my world.
Daddy, stop! No!
'This summer, my whole family is spending the holidays in LA.
'Holly's best friend, Elspeth, is staying with us, too.
'And we're having the best time.'
Let's go. Are we ready?
'LA is an amazing city
'and we've been enjoying everything that it has to offer.
'But, most importantly, I've been busy in the kitchen.'
-Really, really nice.
'And I've been letting my friends and everyone back home see
'what I'm been doing by putting some of my food on my blog.
'And, today, they'll get to see my chicken tikka skewers,
'my amazing samosas and my yummy macaroons.
'And I'm cooking them for an extra special occasion.'
It's my gran's birthday today.
'She's back home, but I've invited everyone over for a party
'in her honour.'
I've decided on a Bollywood party - great food, great fun
and lots of loud music and dancing.
Oh, my goodness! Wow!
'Like us, Gran is a bit crazy.'
So it will suit her.
'There's just one small problem...'
Unfortunately, Dad is rubbish at dancing.
I can dance in the kitchen, but I can't dance to music.
Meg is quite good at dancing.
Holly...she likes it.
Jack is a bit like overconfident. He's like, "Yeah!"
Mum just does a mummy dance.
So, the big question is, if you've got no rhythm...
Matilda! I love you, chef.
Oh, it's disappointing.
'To make my party extra brilliant,
'I've asked the guys to learn Bollywood dancing.
'This could go very wrong.
'The two movie capitals in the world are Hollywood in America,
'which is where we are,
'and Bollywood in India.'
They're so good.
'Bollywood films are famous for their elaborate dance routines.'
This is definitely the right place. I can't wait.
'But Bollywood isn't its real name.
'It's a mashup of the word Bombay and Hollywood.'
I can't wait to see you in the outfit.
'Bombay was the Indian film capital, but it's now called Mumbai.
'So really, the word Bollywood makes no sense.
'In 2013, India celebrated 100 years of Bollywood films
'and, as over 1,000 are produced each year, that's a lot of dancing.'
Have you guys studied dance before?
Not really, it was a while ago.
You were like, "Not Bollywood!"
'I don't know if the teacher knows what she's let herself in for!'
This is my Bollywood face.
'Luckily, I'm safely in the kitchen ready to start my first dish.
'That's if I can get Dad to stop messing around.'
BOTH: Bang, bang, bang. Bang!
-No, you missed the hand.
-Come on then! Quick!
Right, Tilly, stop messing around. We've got work to do.
'Remember, even if your parents are jokers like mine,
'they like you to ask before you take over the kitchen.
'Most Bollywood dance films are really colourful, vibrant,
'and great fun.'
And that's how I like my food.
Just like my chicken tikka skewers.
'And don't forget,
'you've always got to wash your hands before you get stuck in.'
I'm going to start with making the marinade for the chicken.
So, first, I've got a bowl of plain yoghurt.
'Then I'll add some cumin and chilli.'
If you want more spice, you can always add more chilli.
'Then it's tomato paste, ginger, coriander and spring onions.'
Next, I'm going to crush the garlic.
You need to be very strong for this.
Ramsays are pretty tough, but not super, super.
Dad thinks he is, though.
'Next I'll add lime juice
'and half a tin of coconut milk to add an exotic taste.'
Now it's time to add the chicken.
I'm going to make sure all the chicken is nice and coated.
I suppose it's like wearing a coat.
'Once it's covered, pop into the fridge for about 30 minutes
'to an hour to let the marinade soak in.'
'Bollywood dancing is made up of lots of different styles of dance.'
We'll first picture that we are on a Bollywood sound stage in Mumbai.
OK? You guys are ready to go! You don't even need me!
'Jack's dancing has a style all of its own.
'Achintya has her work cut out with him.'
'It's really popular in India
'and, as it's the second most populated country in the world,
'that's a lot of people who love it.'
Open and close. Open and close.
'While the guys attempt to learn their moves,
'it's time for the fun part in the kitchen.'
I'm now going to start by getting a piece of marinated chicken
and putting it on the skewer.
Next, I'm going to add a pepper.
I'm making up pattern of two pieces of chicken and then one vegetable.
'But you can make any pattern you want.'
This is going to be perfect for my Bollywood party.
'Don't worry if you get messy, that's how it should be.'
I always find a way to get dirty.
Somehow, I've even got the board dirty.
I really think Jack and Holly will like these, and Dad.
'When you've finished touching raw meat,
'it's very important to wash your hands.'
It's now time to put them in the oven....
'..for about 15 minutes, depending on the size of your chicken.
'Time for me to see what the others are up to.'
-Hello. What's on your head?
-Who's that dancing?
Jack and the teacher.
-Would you guys mind to pick me up some gold leaves?
'The skewers have been in the oven for 15 minutes.'
They look so good.
'Be very careful because metal skewers will be really hot.'
It's quite fun when you make your own pattern on a board.
'They were so easy to make and look so colourful, just like I wanted.'
I'm pretty sure Nan would love them, too, if she was here.
'She's back in the UK,
'but that won't stop us celebrating her birthday here in LA.
'And she loves seeing these on my blog.'
'The guys have hopefully learnt some great Bollywood moves.'
I really enjoyed that. Probably one of my favourites so far.
I can't wait to show Tilly some moves.
'And I can't wait to show them my next dish.'
I love food that really packs a great flavour punch.
My totally awesome samosas are little parcels of deliciousness
that always hit the mark.
This is the filling for my awesome samosas.
Mm! So good!
'It's just mashed potato, vegetables and herbs
'and a spice called turmeric gives it its lovely, yellow colour.'
This will be great for our party because it's nice and bright.
This is my filo pastry.
It's like wrapping your presents up for Christmas.
'And like wrapping paper, you can buy it in packets.
'Put a dollop of mixture on and then fold it into triangle shapes.'
Dad! What are you doing trying to sneak in?
I'm heating my coffee up.
-Sorry! Excuse me!
And what's happened to your hair again?
-Have you called Nan to say happy birthday yet?
-No, not yet.
I will do shortly. A little kiss, please.
Dear, oh, dear!
Dad is so annoying like that.
So back to what I was doing.
You want to make them quite nice and fat because that's always better.
This is a bit of an odd one, but never mind.
'I've never been very good at neatly folding!
'This one is more like a sausage and I can also see a snail
'and maybe a bird.
'I think it makes it more fun.
'Next, I'll paint my samosas with oil.
'Then it's time to pop them into the oven.
'The party is really coming together.
'There's just dessert to make now.
'I hope my crazy brother and sisters remember the gold I asked for.'
I'll go this way, you guys go that way.
'Gold is a big part of Indian culture.
'You can buy edible gold in supermarkets
'and it doesn't cost the earth. I love it!'
I have edible gold for decorating food and beverages.
That will definitely work. Let's go!
'15 minutes later and it's time to see how my samosas are doing.'
They're such a nice golden colour.
Wow! I'm going to serve it with my raita sauce.
It's basically just cucumber and yoghurt with a bit of mint.
And it's really... Mm! ..delicious!
'Now it's time to take pictures for my blog.'
I'm definitely sending these pictures to Gran.
'With the guys on their way home, it's time to get on with my dessert.
'if SOMEONE stops distracting me, that is!'
What are you doing, Santa Claus?!
-You said you need me.
-I said Mum!
Who's the real chef in the house?
-Oh, come on!
Bollywood is famous for going over the top
so I'm really going over the top with my pudding.
Bollywood macaroons decorated with real gold.
Ooh, sounds fancy!
This is a cracking recipe.
Why did the whale cross the ocean?
To get to the other "tide".
'First, I need to whisk up two egg whites.
'Add sugar, vanilla and desiccated coconut.
'Then it's time to make the cakes.'
This coconut makes them seem quite exotic,
maybe like it's a Bollywood outfit.
'Then put them into the oven until the tops are golden.
'And just in time! As the others are back with my gold leaf
'and Jack is already showing off.'
Headache. Fever! Fever!
'Now, for what I've been waiting for.
'Time to decorate the macaroons with my gold leaf.'
Time to try it, see if it really does taste nice.
To be honest, you can't taste much.
It just sticks to your tongue.
'I'm going to use melted chocolate
'and edible glitter to make my macaroons extra special.
'But you can use anything you like.
'Now for my special touch, gold leaves.'
You make it nicely arranged on the top. That looks so pretty.
It's like a little flower.
I bet Nan would love these cos Nan loves bling.
Wow! They look perfect and ready to serve at a Bollywood party.
The gold is really showing up.
'And as we are about to hold a party in Nan's honour,
'it's time to call the birthday girl.'
ALL: Hi, Nan. Happy birthday!
Oh, thank you, children. That's very kind of you.
Nan, we're celebrating a party here for you.
It's a Bollywood theme.
Happy 70th, Nan!
ALL: She's not 70!
-Do you know what? You should never ask a lady her age.
Nan, Mum, happy birthday.
Bye. Love you.
See you soon. Love you!
'Finally, the guests have arrived.
'It's time to start my Bollywood party.'
Everybody put some clothing on.
You look lovely.
This is a chicken tikka skewer.
Samosas as well.
-Did you guys learn much at the dancing?
Will you show me after?
Mm. These are so good.
I've always wanted to go to India.
The samosas are really good and fresh.
Normally, greasy and oily, but these ones were really nice.
Yeah, Tilly did well.
Real edible gold macaroons.
I never had gold before. This is my first time.
Oh, it's so good.
It puts a Bollywood touch onto it.
These are honestly great.
-Nan loves coconut.
-I think she'd be really happy with this.
-ALL: TO NAN!
Come on, everyone, let's go and do some dancing.
Like this. And start. Like that...
Do the "fever" one, not "diva".
Jack Ramsay, you surprise me. Oh, my goodness! Wow!
I can't dance. I can dance in the kitchen, but I can't dance to music.
Big, everyone. Be big. Be big!
Good luck next time you go back to school, buddy!
'Dad might not be able to dance, but he's pretty good in the kitchen
'so I love having a foodie chat with him at the end of the day.'
-Would you like to see some pictures?
-I'd love to see some pictures.
So tell me about the marinade, because that chicken was so tender.
That was just like a plain tikka marinade.
Right. How did you cook them?
-I just put them in the oven.
-Right, so you baked them?
They were lovely.
-The samosas. They were lovely. And these little beauties.
-Look how glamorous they are!
Do you know, when I was 12, there was no such word as "bling".
Do you know what we had?
Ham, egg and chips.
-I like ham and egg.
I've never seen you have ham, egg and chips.
So Jack's got the moves, like Jagger.
You've got the food, like Daddy.
Just want to talk to you about one more thing...do you like dancing?
-Yeah, I do.
-Do you think you'll ever slow dance with a guy one day?
I think our chat is done.
Just in case, if you ever have a slow dance...
Let me teach you and your boyfriend to dance! Tilly!
Good night, everyone.
Bollywood hands. Change the light bulb....
Oh, it's going to be a long night!
