When I was in University, I had the best deal in the whole world. I did all the cooking for my roommate, and she did all our dishes. I hate dishes, and she didn’t know how to cook beyond the basics of sandwich making. To be fair, I didn’t really know how to cook either, but I was eager to learn, eager not to do dishes, and I could do slightly more than make a sandwich. I can’t remember who bought me this cookbook, but it was one of the best things that ever happened to me and my roommate.I [...]
I have dozens of cookbooks. While I often use the Internet to find recipes in a hurry, I find that these cookbooks are the ones I turn to just for his comments about food. His enthusiasm for food is contagious. I love that he tries to make you think about where your food is coming from and how it is prepared. And all of the recipes I've tried in this book are delicious and not too difficult.
This is probably my most frequented cookbook - my husband is British, so he likes most of the recipe styles but there are many international dishes. Tons of great recipes. I still haven't tried everything I'd like to but there are plenty that I make over and over.
Oliver's energy and enthusiasm about food burns on the page--he tries new things, finds out new things, is constantly learning. I love the quickness to these meals--there's a whole section of gorgeous five-minute meals. Politically, I'm totally behind Oliver. I think that people need to rethink their relationship to food, and they need to learn how to cook. I don't know how you can be in control of your health or your impact on the environment if you can't control food, if you are a slave to pre [...]
We, hubby and me, love Jamie Oliver and are trying more and more of his recipes. Have decided as a new years resolution to do more cooking of new recipes together in weekend days This cookbook is full of elementary great recipes, pastas, chicken, beef, soups, fish, etc. etc. We are actually trying his "Ultimate onion soup" this evening. Last week we tried his rib-eye stir fry & dan dan noodles, which was an adventure in itself! I love it that he uses so much fresh herbs, learnt a lot about t [...]
There isn't much I can say that hasn't already been said about this book (and Oliver himself). I'm not sure I need to reiterate how awesome it is. What I will say is that Oliver has a wonderful way of writing, and with each book of his I read (yes, I read them cover to cover), I feel like I'm getting to know him and that each book is a continuing conversation picked up from where the previous book finished.I can also confirm that the dishes in here are as delicious as they appear in print and pi [...]
GREAT recipes from this one. I made the following many many times:Roast Chicken and potatoes:tinaculbertson/20Chicken and Sweet Leek Pie:tinaculbertson/20Minestrone:tinaculbertson/20
You can feel his passion for good food on every page. Not just a list of recipes, but why he chose every dish in the book and how he likes to eat it.
I knew Jamie Oliver from his shows. In it he always makes cooking looks like so much fun. Which it could be actually. One thing I notice is that Jamie rarely cooks with utensil, most often he just uses his hand to turn stuff on his skillet! Good thing knives don't grow on his hand otherwise he probably really won't need anything beyond pots and pans. That aside, his writing style is quite chatty, he talks you through the recipe, peppering it with anecdotes here and there. I haven't actually trie [...]
Another fab Jamie Oliver cookbook. A tad more basic that his newer books but I love it because my kids love looking through and straight away are attracted by the photography and I get many 'I want that one' or ' can we have this for dinner tonight'. I am always cooking with my teenagers so the imagery is also very inspiring - although our creations often aren't presented anywhere near as good as what we see, but they don't care as they made it.Recipes as always are easy to follow and understand [...]
I checked this cookbook out from my library and I LOVED it. I personally love Jamie Oliver's cookbooks and think he is one of the best celebrity chef's around. This cookbook was great because the recipes were something I could see myself making and my family eating. The book is riddled with tons of great photos (I love photos to recipes) and lots of tips and easy instructions. I might have to actually purchase this one now because of how much I loved it.
I have to confess that the absolute best "fries" I've ever made have come from this book. I know some (okay, any) people find Oliver's tone irritating, and I do as well, more often than not. But his recipes are in fact quite practical and simple for every day cooking, without resorting to pre-made junk. Well done, and pass the fries . . .
I give 5 stars for the artistic side of this cookbook. It was so much fun to read and the picture were great. For an "essential family cookbook" I thought that William would not eat a majority of the recipes and they were too complex for me. I guess I was looking for something a little simpler. I did like the lunchbox tips and am going to try a few of the pasta recipes.
I've had this book over a year and haven't made 1 thing from it. I like the pictures and his style of writing out recipes and categorizing them, but there is nothing in it that has really grabbed me and said, "COOK ME!"
This is probably Jamie Oliver's best, most useful and accessible book. It's a fantastic reference full of original tips and fresh ingredients. His white sauce shortcut (creme fraiche and anchovies) is ingenious.
It's totally basic and balanced. If I had a kid, I would probably use it a lot more often for it's simplicity and overall awareness to feed your family a healthy meal. I like his other books more, but this one is still a keeper.
I love to read cookbooks (don't always cook from them, but that's a different story). I'm a Jamie Oliver fan, and I really liked the tone and messages in this cookbook. Will definitely try some of the fav recipes from this book, as well as some of the veggie recipes.
Everything I've made from this book turns out well. More than that, I want to make pretty much everything in it. Great simple tasty food.
favourite one of the lot
Second book I cooked my way through.
my fav of the jamie oliver series.
i love jamie oliver. this book is beautiful.
One of the best pull off the shelves and the kids will eat it kind of cook books
Ok book for simple ideas.Most usable for families. Lots of fast carb dinners rather than complex flavors or protein and veggie centric dishes.
my hands down all-time favorite cookbook.
OK, it's not a real book, per se. But it's a wonderful cookbook. Great ideas. That chopped salad is great and his story is interesting too.
This book has gorgeous pictures and makes you really want to cook (and eat)! But, from a practicality standpoint, not the most useful cookbook on our shelves.
I use this cookbook often and have not been disappointed yet with the great recipes! Each one I've tried has become a favorite.
one of my all-time favorite chefs & an amazing cookbook (best roast chicken recipe ever!!!)
