THE NO 1 BESTSELLER
I'm really proud of this book because it's full of recipes for great family dinners, and what I want is to get you all cooking and enjoying them together at home. It's all about eating well whatever your budget and how great food can improve everybody's life.
My Top Ten chapter gives you some real crowd-pleasers that absolutely everyone loves to eat, like sausage, mash and gravy and a superb chicken and leak pie. There are also some really easy five-minute wonders for when you're on the go and haven't time to stop.
Whatever you do, make sure you use this book with a big smile on your face!

Oliver is demonstrating that 'fast' food should be good food - that nourishing, nutritional meals can be prepared cheaply, quickly, and easily, if you just learn a few basic skills and ideas, experiment, and allow yourself the chance to grow in self-confidence. So he presents an entry level cookbook - exploring the basic ingredients and cooking methods, recognising that speed of cooking is about preparation and planning.
He offers recipes for traditional sausage and mash, for a healthy burger and chips, for a range of meals which children and young people will find attractive. Package the food right, your children will start to enjoy good food and not just additives. There are recipes which will take time in the oven, there are ones you can throw together in five minutes, there are ideas for sandwiches, there are hints on preparing sauces in bulk then producing them from the freezer as and when necessary.
It's a stimulating, entertaining package, and one which might just encourage a bit of exploration and adventure. It's a book which can appeal to parents and children alike, one which students might take with them to college, and there are plentiful quick meal hints to note so you could pick up the ingredients on the way home from work on those days you suddenly panic that there's no food in the house. Jamie Oliver demonstrates that imagination is the core ingredient to good cooking. A book to enjoy.
Jamie has produced a well written, thoroughly readable and above all, tasty set of recipes for us all to try out. We have tried a number of dishes from this book, and I can quite honestly say that they are all delicious and easy to follow, requiring nothing more special than a trip to the supermarket. What a delight to read a cookbook that is realistic. My general opinion is that celebrity chefs seem to forget most of us are only average in a kitchen and it is a struggle trying to create a tasty dish,let alone think about the presentation. This book really breaks the mould and I shall certainly be trying out other Oliver books in the future.
Lovely stews and the ultimate burger and chips recipe. What more do you want.
