Save with Jamie: Shop Smart, Cook Clever, Waste Less
Save with Jamie: Shop Smart, Cook Clever, Waste Less
by Jamie Oliver
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Another lovely book from Jamie Oliver, 29 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, please ignore the first review of this book by Vicky 'darren redstar'. It's quite clear that she doesn't own the book. It seems as if their only intention was to come and post a personal attack on Jamie Oliver. Hopefully Amazon will do the right thing and remove the review and it distorts the rating of this product

I am a big fan of Jamie Oliver and have most of his previous books so naturally I was pleased to discover that he had another one coming out. I read on Jamie's website that he was working on another book but put that to one side due to the demand by his fans for him to produce a book aimed at helping us to save money and waste less food yet still eat well in these tough economic times.

We all know that times are tough at the minute and so the temptation for some people when wandering around the supermarket is to pick up that £1 lasagne ready-meal rather than cook something fresh from scratch, such is the extent to which our food budgets have been squeezed. According to Jamie, the average British adult has 12 takeaway meals a month. The meals in this book, according to Jamie, cost half that of an average take away meaning that you will be able to produce healthier and more nutritious food than that 12" pizza you had last week.

Like almost all of Jamie's books, the photography is excellent with the food looking so delicious that you just want to go into your kitchen and start cooking straight away. Already my copy has a number of pages marked with meals that I can't wait to try. Thankfully, each recipe comes with an accompanying photograph which I know is important to a lot of people when it comes to cookbooks as they like to know what the finished dish should look like.

As with a Jamie Oliver book, recipe instructions are clear and concise and I believe that anyone who has even the most basic knowledge of cooking will be able to produce these recipes in this book. All of the recipes in this book feature ingredients that you will be able to find in your local supermarket. Furthermore, given that this is a book aimed at saving money and creating less waste you will all be pleased to know that there no recipes that require obscure ingredients that you have never heard of before which would require a trip to an Asian supermarket to source.

At the front of the book you will find 12 pages on how to shop smarter, from things that can be frozen, what you should and shouldn't have in your fridge regular basis, essential ingredients for your store cupboard, how to shop for bargains in the supermarket.

The book is divided into the following chapters:

Intro
Shop Smart
Veg
Chicken
Beef
Pork
Lamb
Fish
Bonus Recipes
Nutrition
Index

The question as to who this book will appeal to the most is difficult to answer. Certainly it will prove incredibly useful to students going to university as well as families living on a budget. I would say that of all of Jamie's books this is by far and away the most accessible and will appeal to the widest range of people.

Below you will find all of the recipes contained within this book listed by chapter. I do hope this proves useful in helping you to decide whether or not this is a book that you would be interested in.

The Incredible Spice Men
The Incredible Spice Men
by Cyrus Todiwala
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.99

177 of 183 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative twists on British classics, 17 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To accompany the TV series of the Incredible Spice Men comes the tie-in book. Chefs Cyrus Todiwala and Tony Singh have travelled the country seeking out dishes that they could put their spicy twist on.

We all love our traditional British food and so the idea of being able to transform them with spices is something that immediately appealed to me so when I saw that such a book was coming out I was very pleased. Some people tend to look down on the British classics so if you're holding a dinner party it might be nice to wheel out a couple of the dishes from this book without telling them of the spices that have been put into them to transform them into dishes that would wow any dinner party.

The first thing I would say is that the book is beautiful to look at, the photos of the recipes jump off the page and just make you want to head to the kitchen and start cooking them. Whenever ever I purchase a cookbook where the main theme is spice I worry that the recipes will call for spices that can only be found in Asian supermarkets or large cities. Thankfully the two chefs have realised that making the recipes accessible to everybody is something that is important to people who want to produce lovely food without having to spend time sourcing difficult to find ingredients. Hence you will be able to find all of the spices used in the recipes in this book in the spice isle of any large supermarket.
The recipes themselves are incredibly varied with a whole host of familiar British classics given a twist by the addition of a couple of spices. The recipe instructions are easy to follow so nobody should have a problem reproducing the recipes featured. Of course, there are a few recipes that are more complicated but you would only expect this as there are always a number of recipes in every cookbook aimed at those looking to impress guests with their technique.

The book is divided into the following chapters:

Starters, snacks and a light bite or two
Fish and a bit of seafood
Chicken and poultry
Pork, lamb and beef and other meats
Vegetables, sides, salads and chutneys
Desserts and a few wee drinks

At the back of the book you also find pages on some simple spice mixes as well as some useful tips and techniques.

Below you will find a list of the recipes featured in this book listed by chapter. I hope this proves useful in helping you to come to a decision as to whether this is a book that you would like to own.

Starters, snacks and a light bite or two:
Spiced beetroot soup
Hot and sour soup with crispy fish
Gazpacho with a kick

The Hairy Dieters Eat for Life: How to Love Food, Lose Weight and Keep it Off for Good! (Hairy Bikers)
The Hairy Dieters Eat for Life: How to Love Food, Lose Weight and Keep it Off for Good! (Hairy Bikers)
by Hairy Bikers

Price: £7.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb follow-up to the original Hairy Dieters book, 17 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Following from the success of the Hairy Dieters first book, the Hairy Bikers' have released this, a follow-up to the original book. I watched the Hairy Dieters TV show and thoroughly enjoyed it. Seeing Si and Dave lose so much weight was inspirational because having watched all of their TV shows I know how much they loved their food so it must have been incredibly hard for them to cut out the things they loved the most. The success of the TV show clearly inspired a whole host of people to purchase the first book and start losing weight by following the recipes and tips that the boys provided. It was only natural then, given the success of the first book that a second book would be released in due course and here it is. My copy of the first book is looking pretty scruffy with food stains littered across the pages such has been the regularity with which I return to it. There are numerous diet books out there and whilst I wouldn't claim to have any knowledge about how the recipes in them taste, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the recipes in the first Hairy Dieters book were not only healthy but tasty to boot so when I discovered that they were bringing out a second book I awaited its release with anticipation.

Now going on to this second book, the first thing I would say is that having flicked through it I believe that the recipes in this book are even more appealing than in the first book. Like I said, I cooked a lot from the first book but I can see this one getting used even more than the first book. The food looks really appealing in the beautiful photos, with simple instructions meaning that you will be able to produce simple yet tasty and healthy food with the minimum of fuss. Like the first book each recipe has the number of calories per portion noted below the recipe title. The recipes do not call for obscure ingredients that can only be found if you live in a large city. All of the ingredients should be easily available in your local supermarket. I can't see many of these recipes costing that much to produce either, something which is very important in these tough economic times.

If you have the first Hairy Dieters book I would highly recommend that you purchase this book too. If you haven't yet purchased the first book I would urge you to buy that along with this one. Now that I have both of the books it means I have an extended range of recipes ot call on, meaning that I can produce meals from both books without repeating the same recipe two weeks later. I can see myself and my family enjoying the recipes in this book for years to come and I know that by following the recipes to the letter I will be able to enjoy guilt-free, tasty food without having to worry about my waistline.

The book is divided into the following chapters:

Breakfast & Brunch
Real Food Fast
Family Favourites
Meals with Mates
More Fab Fakeaways
Food From Afar
Meals on the Move
Snacks & Salads
Something Sweet
Along Sides

There is also a section listing a whole host of things that you can eat for 100 calories.

Great British Bake Off: Everyday: Over 100 Foolproof Bakes
Great British Bake Off: Everyday: Over 100 Foolproof Bakes

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll pile on the pounds if you're not careful thanks to this book, 8 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's August and that can only mean one thing, another series of the Great British Bake Off is almost upon us. To accompany the new series comes this book which contains over 100 delicious treats from across the baking spectrum. The book is easy to read due to the font and typeface that has been used. Most of the recipes should be achievable for the average baker although the technical challenge and showstopper recipes may prove somewhat more taxing. You may need to purchase some baking equipment to produce some of the recipes in this book. For example, one of the recipes calls for a 10cm cake tin, something which I do not have as of yet. Likewise, some specialist ingredients may need to be sought and hopefully these will be found in your local supermarket but if not there are plenty of online shops that specialise in baking ingredients.
I should warn those of you that like a picture to accompany each recipe that only about 40% of the bakes in this book have a picture of the finished product.

The contents page of the book is as follows:

The Hairy Bikers' Great Curries
The Hairy Bikers' Great Curries
by Hairy Bikers
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.00

53 of 59 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Tasty, delicious and simple to make curries, 7 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having produced a mammoth book on pies it was only a matter of time before the Hairy Bikers produced a similar book on curries, and here it is. Coming in at nigh on 400 pages this is a great book for anyone who has even the slightest interest in making delicious curries for their family and friends.

The great thing about the recipes in this book is that on the whole they stick to ingredients that you can find in your local supermarket. Some recipes do require ingredients that you may not be able to find without using an online specialist store. However, these are few and far between. I have a number of curry books and some of them call for obscure ingredients that would spend the next few years sat at the back of the cupboard gathering dust.

Each recipe comes with an accompanying photograph which means you will have some idea what the finished meal should look like. As this is a Hairy Bikers' cookbook the recipe instructions and straightforward and easy to follow and I believe that even the most amateur of cooks would have success with the recipes in this book.

The book is divided into the following chapters:

Starters & snacks
Light curries
Chicken curries
Fish & shellfish curries
Lamb, beef and pork curries
Vegetable curries
Curry for a crowd
Side dishes
Breads & rice
Pickles & chutneys
Sweet dishes
The basics
A curry and a berr
Great curry meals
Index

Please find below a list of all of the recipes in this book. I realise that this book on Amazon contains a look inside feature allowing you to browse the index but I believe it is much easier for people if the recipes are listed, making it easier for them to decide if this is a book they would like to purchase or not.

Starters & snacks:
Masala poppadums
King prawn pakoras
Spring onion pakoras
Lamb chop pakoras
Chicken tikka
Lamb tikka

The Hummingbird Bakery Home Sweet Home
The Hummingbird Bakery Home Sweet Home

Price: £5.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A great follow-up to the previous Hummingbird Bakery titles, 15 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I already have the 2 previous Hummingbird Bakery cookbooks so when I saw that there was a new one coming out I knew I had to have it.

The recipes in this book are not overly complicated and should not prove too daunting, even for those with limited baking experience. Despite this book having a heavy American influence it does not require you to buy a set of measuring cups or involve searching online for hard to find ingredients as all of the ingredients can be found in any well-stocked supermarket.

Each recipe comes with an accompanying photo and the instructions for each recipe are clear and concise whilst providing detailed instructions for each step

The previous book, The Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days was divided into chapters by occasion (Easter, Christmas, Halloween for example). This book sticks to a more traditional lay-out. This book is divided into the following chapters:

Cupcakes
Cakes, cheesecakes and roulades
Cookies and biscuits
Pies and cobblers
Traybakes
Sweet treats and classic puds
Savouries

At the back of the book there is a section called 'baking essentials' which should prove useful for those with limited baking experience.

Please find below a list of all of the recipes featured in this book.

Jaffa cake cupcakes
Mint humbug cupcakes
Doughnut cupcakes

In One Pot: Fresh Recipes for Every Occasion
In One Pot: Fresh Recipes for Every Occasion

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book featuring tasty, achievable dishes using readily available ingredients, 15 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I stumbled upon this book in the food & drink pre-order chart it immediatelty grabbed my attention. I already have a few books based around the concept of one-pot cooking but I decided that adding another one to my collection couldn't hurt. Thankfully, this book hasn't disappointed. It features beautiful photography and every dish comes with its own photo which is important to a lot of people when it comes to cookbooks. The list of ingredients for each recipe is kept to a minimum (although the curry dishes for example require a few spices) and I believe that all of the ingredients are ones that everyone should be able to find locally. The recipe instructions are clear, concise and simple to understand.

There is a chapter called 'basics' in which the authour basic recipes for yoghurt sauces, stock, salad ideas and vinaigretts. She also provides a few tips to help you get the best out of your ingredients such as how to prepare meat, browning meat, resting meat, sweating onions, slow cooking vegetables for a soup base, blanching, boling, toasting spices and crushing garlic.

The book is divided into the following chapters:

Introduction
Quick Pots
Slow Pots
Little Pots
Pots to Go
Party Pots
Sweet Pots
Basics
Index

Below I have taken the time to list all of the recipes featured in this book. I do hope this helps when coming to decide whether to purchase this book or not.

The Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook
The Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook
by Lynn Hill
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £8.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning book featuring delicious cakes that will impress friends and family, 14 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been an avid fan of the Clandestine Cake Club for a while now I was excited when I found out that they were bringing out a cookbook.

This is a lovely book. It contains 120 recipes, each of which comes with a short introduction detailing the origins of the cake as well as an accompanying photo which I know is essential to some cooks as they like to know what their finished cake should look like. On the whole the list of ingredients for each cake is not too long (although of course there are a couple where the ingredients list is long) and you should be able to find everything in your local supermarket. The instructions for each recipe are laid out in bullet point format and they are easy to follow.

If you enjoy making cakes for yourself, your friends or your family you will love this book as it contains original cakes that I have not found in any of the many other cookbooks I own.

Please find the recipes found in this book listed below. At the time of writing this review no 'look inside' feature was available for this book. I appreciate that in the future Amazon may provide such a feature for this book.

Leon: Family & Friends
Leon: Family & Friends
by John Vincent
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £22.75

134 of 138 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Another fine addition to the Leon cookbook series, 12 Nov 2012
This review is from: Leon: Family & Friends (Hardcover)
This is the 4th Leon book to be released and having owned the previous three I knew that I would have to add this to my collection. I knew I would not disappointed and I wasn't. Firstly, it is a very attractive book, one that would not look out of place on your coffee table. Recipes are laid out against a white background which makes the book easy to refer back to when following one of the recipes. Not every recipe in this book comes with an accompanying photo. That isn't an issue to me but I know it is to some people so I thought I would mention it.

In the back of the book you will find an index. The index is split into two. The first index is split into categories and they are as follows:

Low glycemic load
Low saturated fat
Wheat free
Gluten free
Dairy free vegetarian

The second index is traditional index, listing recipes from A-Z.

The book is divided into the following chapters:

Part one: Today:
Breakfast and brunch
Speedy lunches
A walk in the park
Tea time and high tea
Super weekday suppers
After lights out
Something sweet

Part two: Tomorrow:
Food on the move
Weekend blow-outs
Kids' cooking classes
Birthdays
Christmas and boxing day
10 things you should know how to cook before you leave home

Part three: Yesterday:
Memery lane

I have taken the time to list all of the recipes featured in the book. I do hope this is a help to you when you come to decide whether or not this is the book for you.
