a mouth-watering cook book for the health-conscious amateur!,
This review is from: The Naked Chef (Hardcover)
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!

I am really surprised that 24 people have found this so-called cookery book 'review' the slightest bit helpful, especially when this 3-star review, from the same era
<<<Great TV series shame about the cook book, 3 May 2000
.....Although I liked the TV series (it was different and entertaining)I think this cook book is a poorly designed concept. I like cook books but ONLY those with explicit pictures of the final dish (NOT these trendy "lack of depth" pictures that have been manipulated in Photoshop). Why aren't all the dishes displayed (and diplayed IN FOCUS!)? The TV series inspired me but the book fails in this aspect. Totally! How many of us actually cook using recepies without pictures? >>>
has had so few votes?
<<<....We're busy people who love good food....>>>
I mean, have you people actually read it?
It is by far the worst book Jme has ever written and it really shows the naked truth!
