Nice and simple,
This review is from: Jamie's Dinners (Hardcover)
This was the first cook book I'd ever bought for myself, usually I'd have used an old one that was lying around the house, or one of my girlfriends or a recipe of the net, but I decided it was about time I got one for myself.
For me, as a novice cook I found the book easy to follow and easy to understand. He uses ingredients and terminology that I've heard of and that I could easily pick up in a local supermarket. I've only had the book a while and I've already tried quite a few of the recipes with quite a lot of success!
The book itself is split up into several sections, including salads, soups, vegetables, five minute wonders, (meal for one) pasta, meat, fish and desserts. Jamie also outlines recipes for his top ten, which includes roast chicken, fish and chips and apple pie.
I felt the book was very useful, helpful and gave me confidence to try some variations on what was written in it. I'd recommend it for first timers like myself and I'm sure more experienced cooks might gain something from his approach and style to cooking.
Check it out.
