a mouth-watering cook book for the health-conscious amateur!
on 13 June 2000
This cook-book has you salivating from the first few pages!
It combines a refreshingly anarchich style with simple and achievable recipes which allow for a healthy diet and could be(and are so far succesfully being) used as part of a weight-reduction programme.
Jamie is an inspirational cook who does not call for complicated ingredients or cooking methods or loads of cream and butter but rather relies on high quality ingredients and bold but simple combinations to achieve truly orgasmic results.
We're busy people who love good food. This is a celebration of eating - not cooking. We bought a pasta machine on the strength of these recipes, and ... wow, knockout! BUT - we're still on track with the diet!
This book is 250 pages of mouth-watering photos plus truly inspirational text and recipes.
If you do noting else, stock your larder with his basic ingredient list and your patio/window-box with his herbs. This man Knows His Onions!
Buy this book, and then buy the sequel like we did! You won't be disappointed.
Whoever said the English can't cook hadn't met Jamie Oliver. Bravissimo James!
