It's great to be back.
My name's Matilda. ALL: Tilly!
But people call me Tilly.
I'm crazy about cooking.
Mad to mess about.
And I've got the most embarrassing family ever.
ALL: Says who?
Is it true you have a boyfriend?
You're so annoying.
-Dad's the chef.
-Matilda, where's my frying pan, please?
But I've taken over the kitchen in this house.
What are you doing?
-I'm looking for my frying pan. Tilly.
-Tilly rules, OK.
Where's my frying pan?
I'm back and doing what I love best.
Cooking up a storm, writing my food blog and going all
out for a summer of action, adventure and mad messing about.
With my crazy family in tow, we're heading off to Los Angeles.
I think holidays are the best thing ever.
No deadlines. No bells.
No strictness. Just a brilliant sense of freedom.
The chance to go a bit crazy and have some big-time fun.
As soon as we touch down, we're dropping off the luggage,
hitting the beach and trying to outdo each other.
So the big question is, who's the best and first in the sea?
-I see the sea.
-Welcome back. Yay.
-Right, let's go, guys.
There's 100 to the person that's first in the sea.
-On your marks, get set, go!
-No, no, no, wait, wait, wait.
Right, let's go.
No, Tilly. Tilly!
My entire family is so competitive.
And with a prize that big, I'm doing everything it takes to win.
Right, I need an action replay on that one.
If Tilly could, she'd have jumped off the plane.
I think Tilly won.
These two, they never want to get their hair wet.
Yeah, it's so nice not having to think about school or getting
-up early. It's the best.
Wow, I don't believe it. That's not a shark.
It's a surfboarding dog!
So, Tilly, are you watching?
I'm going to ask the owner if I can have a surf with her.
CHEERING AND CLAPPING
Oh, my goodness.
Right, Tilly. Come on, time to cook!
On a city, who would have thought, our first day, and we're surfing...
-..with a golden retriever?
One more little competition.
Before dinner, I'd like you all to go off down to Santa Monica
and see who can come up with the best...
-..the best selfie. Come on. Jack.
I'm heading home to hit the stoves
and cook up a "Welcome to America" meal for everyone.
Scrummy Californian fried chicken,
super-healthy Hollywood Hills crunch
and the most extraordinary banana split ever.
My super-competitive brother and sisters
are off to Santa Monica Pier to try and win Dad's selfie competition.
-That's you twins versus older?
-I'm so excited.
Megan's going selfie mad.
Who's winning so far? Oi. Oi.
I found a very tiny dog. It's five months old and it's so cute.
Go and see it.
Would it be possible for you to take a caricature of us taking a selfie?
It looks really good so far.
I think it will look even better when all three of us are in it.
-Oh, my gosh. It's so good.
They're going to be hard to beat.
The Ramsay tradition when we arrive is to always have a slap-up
American feast and I'm doing the cooking.
Mmm. Fried chicken with my secret spice mix.
I think the guys are going to love this.
It's a totally American dish
and I'm going to let you in on my secret recipe.
Great fried chicken is all about the coating.
And to make it crunchy,
I'm going to be using these Rice Krispies.
All you do is add in a touch of cayenne pepper.
Ooh, I think it's quite spicy.
Half a teaspoon of garlic powder
and onion powder, a teaspoon of salt.
TING Next, some smoked paprika.
This smells really good.
You can see why this is a secret.
Add celery salt
Now, I'm going to put all of it in this zip bag.
It'll make them a lot easier to crush.
This is the fun bit of the recipe.
You want to get it as crunched up as you can.
You can definitely smell all the spices in there.
Next, chop some parsley and coriander.
Ooh, they smell so good.
You have to be really careful with knives.
But when I'm chopping something like this, I prefer to hold the end
and then just the top bit there, so I can push it down and lift it up.
Yummy coating sorted.
Now, to make it stick.
Whisk up two eggs in one bowl and add flour to another.
This, here, is just cut up chicken breast.
We're going to dip it in the flour and then coat it in the egg.
And then put it in our yummy coating.
Wow, that looks amazing.
It's going to be delicious.
I think everyone in my family's going to love these.
It's a celebration cos we're back in America with American food
with my twist, though.
And remember, after you touch raw meat, you have to wash your hands.
So, these are now ready to go in the oven for about 20 to 30 minutes
until they're golden brown.
I'm going to phone the others
and see how they're getting on on the pier.
We got some pretty good selfies.
OK, I'll see you guys soon.
All right. We're going to have a little selfie show when we get home.
Speak to you later, bye.
It's time to get my chicken out of the oven.
Mmm. It smells so amazing.
This coating's going to be crispy.
It's going to be crunchy.
It's going to be spicy.
And most of all, it's going to be delicious.
I'm just going to take some pictures for my blog because it means
everyone can see them.
Check out my recipes and blog on the CBBC website.
Hmm. In the selfie competition,
I suppose I could take pictures of all the food I've made.
Jack wants a selfie with some American food, too.
But my prankster sisters have got other plans.
-One, two, three.
Got to replay that.
Selfie on the Ferris wheel. It's a high-rise must.
The guys are heading home
so I'm cracking on with my special American meal.
Super-healthy, super-delicious and super-Californian.
My Hollywood Hills crunch is my perfect holiday comfort food.
I've got to get a killer selfie for the competition.
I need a tongue. I'm not being left out.
That's absolutely perfect.
Right, it's time to stop messing about. I've got to get on with this.
Because everyone's going to be back really soon.
-What do you think?
What are you making?
I am making...
Well, try and guess from what you see.
-Are you making pancakes?
-'Jack's gone mad.
Hey, Till. I think I've won the selfie contest.
No, you have not. How many times do I have to tell you?
We're going have a big screening but check it out.
Don't be jealous, Megan, but...
-That's not a selfie because you didn't take it yourself.
-Yes, I did.
I put it on self-timer.
-You are distracting me.
-I also won the competition Dad said about who
-can go in the water first.
-And I also won the dog-surfing competition.
-I won that competition.
-No, cos I rode up first.
-We threw a cake in Jack's face.
-You're distracting me.
-We were on the...
-The Ferris wheel.
-You told me.
They're so distracting.
Right, so, now goes in the carrots and I've peeled and grated them.
Next is the kale.
Mummy's going to really love this.
Next, parsley and coriander.
Perfect. And that goes.
Now, it's time to make the dressing.
Grate an apple.
This apple will give it a bit of a tangy flavour.
Next, Greek yoghurt and honey.
This honey tends to make it nice and sweet
and I'm going to add in roughly two tablespoons.
Mmm. Love honey.
Pinch of pepper. Pinch of salt.
Then, add cider vinegar.
Wow. That's very strong.
Mix this all up.
Now, it's time to dress it on all these lovely greens.
I wonder why you call it dressing.
It's not like you're actually putting it in a dress.
I suppose you are covering it up though, so...
I think everyone's going to love this
but I think Mum will love it a lot
because she does love healthy things.
I'm going to try and make my summer food blog the best ever.
That's another selfie for the competition.
A crunch selfie.
This looks lovely.
We are having a bit of a healthy version of fried chicken.
But I can't tell you the recipe
because I know you're going to steal it.
There's no secrets between chef to chef.
Yeah, but you like to steal my recipes.
Do we really want Tilly to do all the cooking across this holiday?
-Yes. None by you.
-Better than yours.
Those that are in favour of Tilly cooking across the holidays,
raise their hands.
Oh, come on, guys, what about me?
What's the dressing in the kale salad, by the way?
It's delicious. Can you pass it to me? I might have a little bit more.
Oh, my eyebrows.
-I think they need plucking.
-Any dessert, Tills?
Yes, actually, I need all of your help.
-Just the children, actually.
-By the way, what would you give that out of ten?
-Solid eight. Well, that's very generous. I'd go six.
-Are you listening, Madam? Criticism's important.
-I'm going to say eight.
-Oh, come on, seriously.
-Better than any of your food.
-Mum, what would you give that?
For me, it's probably verging on a nine.
-Really, a nine?
This was good but it wasn't that good.
Banana splits are really simple. You sort of make them
up to suit yourself.
What is this?
This is a drainpipe that I've cleaned out because we're going to
try and make the biggest banana splits.
So I'm putting them in my mouth?
'No. Your drainpipe has to be totally, totally clean.
'So, remember, it's best not to use one
'that's still attached to the roof.'
OK, so, Meg, do you want to put some ice cream in?
Look, you got red, white and blue.
'And you've got to have whipped cream to decorate the split,
-'and your brother.'
'Gotcha, big bro. Twice in one day, yes!'
-OK, so now, we'll just do it alone.
-Oh, my God, no!
LAUGHING AND SHOUTING
Don't tell Mum and Dad.
It's on my socks.
We're going to try get a selfie with this in the background.
Got whipped creamed down my pants.
-Right, let's go.
-Wow, that is beautiful.
This is our all-American banana split.
Oh, my goodness.
Guys, it looks like the trough.
Only in America, would they do things this big and bold.
-What is that serving, by the way? A drainpipe?
-The ice cream's at the bottom.
-I love it.
I think it looks really, really nice.
So, that looks like a banana split fit for 100.
-Yes. And we've got six of us.
And, oh, talking about 100,
can I just congratulate
-Matilda for being the first in the sea this morning?
-Take defeat gracefully.
And on that note, Madam, may I give you 100?
-Er, that's big money.
-..40, 50, 60, 70...
-I knew 100 was too good to be true.
..80, 90, 100.
-Thank you so much.
-And it's 100 in Monopoly money.
'Dad's such an annoying joker.'
More importantly, the selfies, Dad.
Selfies, let's have a look.
There is an amazing prize for the best selfie.
Why is it when Daddy laughs, you know it will be a terrible prize?
-Is he a chef?
-No, a cleaner.
-Ah, that's amazing. What's the dog's name?
This wasn't a selfie but it was put on self-timer so, technically,
-it was a selfie.
-Was it a cabbage coming out of your tongue?
-So, Mummy, who are you going for?
-Jack, you're not allowed to vote for yourself.
-I like Tilly's.
-Meg's the winner!
-Right, close your eyes.
Congratulations, for the best selfie award goes to Meagan Jane Ramsay
with a picture of...
-Seriously, Tom Cruise,
-eat your heart out.
-Thank you very much. Thank you.
-Don't you think? Jack, Jack.
-I hope he falls in.
-Oh, he's in the pool.
-Oh, he's in the pool. Jack.
Dad's always trying to tease us.
But after cooking, I love having a serious foodie chat with him.
First day back, wow.
We arrived with a bang. Swimming in the sea.
Next to an amazing golden retriever that actually surfs.
Yeah, that was cool.
I love the idea of doing that nice, sort of,
healthy-style fried chicken.
-What was in the coating?
-Some Rice Krispies.
-Loads of different herbs.
I like that little twist.
Can we see a few more of those things across the summer?
-So, the salad.
There was some cabbage, some kale,
some carrots, a bit of healthy things.
Let's talk about drainpipes.
Whose idea was to put that banana split in a drainpipe?
That was mine.
So, traditionally, banana split
is a dessert that you'll
-see on menus that you share.
So, normally, it's for two people.
So, maybe, one day, when you're a restaurant owner
and you're with somebody.
-Good chat. Good chat.
-No, but I'm just...
No, I'm just trying to think in terms of
it's a great dessert to share.
-Tilly, you can't practice surfing in
the pool with the neighbour's dog.
We're not in the pool, we're in the bath.
