So, the prestigious organisation is bringing some of the world's most renowned chefs straight to our kitchens, sharing their favourite homemade recipes on its Instagram page every day.

    You can learn how to whip up everything from Gordon Ramsay's marinara sauce to the Vonnassiennes crepes beloved by Georges Blanc. Also on the menu are pad thai, shakshuka, chocolate chip cookies, cacio e pepe, pork dumplings, and so much more.

    And just because these dishes come from Michelin-starred chefs doesn't mean you'll have to spend all day in the kitchen. Most of the recipes require four steps, or less. Bon appétit indeed.

    The Michelin Guide kicked off its new "At Home" series with Gordon Ramsay's marinara sauce.

    You can easily upgrade pasta night with the help of the "MasterChef" himself, whose simple recipe just calls for canned tomatoes, onion, red wine, olive oil, tomato paste, garlic, and basil.

    Ramsay even has some tips if you're missing a few ingredients.

    "If you don't have fresh garlic or basil, raid your spices cabinet," he told the Michelin Guide. "As a general rule, use what you might like on a pizza, like garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, fennel, or celery salt."
