    This is not a beginners cookery book intermediate It is full of some good recipes 6 out of 8 good 2 bad so far but they are chef recipes in that they do the following1 They suddenly at the end say add boiled potatoes or any other items that will take 20 mins without ever mentioning it previously in the recipe2 They contain lots and lots of herbs different sorts of oil etc etc Which is fine and adds complexity to the flavour but just puts off beginners When JO was in Italy the locals gave him a hard time for over complicating food and not allowing the simple underlying flavours to come through and he does do this3 You can double most of the timings unless you are a good cook or you have made the items 2 or 3 times before or you too have an assistant to chop and peel for youI know the 40s50s photographic style is deliberate; it does look weird sometimes Summary Home cooking tastes nice chefs can cook Cookery books over complicate simple dishes

    Dear Jamie I love your show and your determination to convince Americans to cook fresh food instead of eating processed crap This might however work a little better if you considered writing for people who live in apartments and have no counter space I just made your very lovely raspberry vanilla cheesecake recipe Oh I just realized I completely left out the vanilla Ah well It also would have been helpful if you explained to me how to make orange and lemon zest I had a vague idea that orange zest is grated orange peel so I sliced the peel off of an orange and threw it into a blender I don't own a grater I'll have to correct that Anyway the cheesecake tastes uite yummy despite the omission of the vanilla but it's a little textured than I would have liked Tiny chunks of orange and lemon peel you see Anyway you should realize that people who have never used their ovens the ones you're trying to reach with your food revolution haven't the faintest clue what orange zest is or how to make it I don't think they sell it at my supermarket I don't know as I've never cooked with orange zest before and I'm let's say an intermediate level cook Just something to think about for your next book Viva la revoluciónCheersMePS I was only going to rate you three stars but I bumped it up one just because I believe in what you're doing I wish someone like you had done it when I was in school Thanks mate

    I got this book after deciding I wanted to improve my cooking skills almost seven years ago now It looked complete diverse and versatile so I picked it up And honestly it changed the way I looked at the process of cooking entirely I discovered a new set of skills and a passion for cooking because of that book and I owe Mr Oliver for thatThe conversational style he writes the instructions in is great because it simplifies the process making the recipes less intimidating Many recipes also have easily frozen or re heated leftovers so no waste He also gives variants on many recipes to encourage people to be creative once they mastered the basic and create their own delicious twists Oliver wanted to make the readers appreciate the work that goes into preparing a good meal and as far as I am concerned the end result was that I just wanted to cook and became and passionate about it He also encourages habits like buying fresh ingredients and organic or free range meat and eggs which I just love That being said with a bit experience under my belt I can see flaws in some of the recipes his paella has way too much liuid in it for instance his excessive use of oil and his shyness about strong spices but given how much I got out of the book in the first place I can't dock a star off for that Besides you learn to cook the same way you learn everything else by occasionally fucking up The recipes are still very reliable and fun to makeIt's a perfect book for starter cooks as it makes you see cooking as fun and not as a chore I would particularly recommend it to people with limited cooking experience or who work a lot and don't have time to spend a whole day preparing a Julia Child style feast but who care about making their food from scratch and eating healthy For my part I can tell you it changed the way I looked at my kitchen and turned cooking into a passion Everyone who likes cooking ought to have a copy on their shelvesIt's not a vegetarian friendly book however Certain recipes containing meat can be substituted with veggies but others really can't I would also recommend getting a copy of the hardcover edition and it's easier to keep propped open on the counter while you cook

    First off I want to commend the art team on this book great text layout gorgeous pictures and excellent paper But beyond the visual appeal I'm at a loss for praiseGranted as an intermediate level cook it doesn't look like I'm the target audience for his Food Revolution campaign but I was bewildered to find recipes for things like plain oatmeal boiled eggs smoothies and white rice I know he's assuming only a passing familiarity with the stove but many of these recipes can be found on the sides of packages And the vast majority of the other recipes are lackluster salads various grilledroasted meats omelets vegetables with herbs butter sauces for ice cream The only interesting dishes were in the curries section and for that I'd be better served by a Madhur Jaffrey cookbookI was also surprised to find many recipes reuired fairly premium items like filet mignon sun dried tomatoes jarred roasted red peppers and crème fraiche By no means were ALL the recipes so posh but for a book that touts simple affordable meals they seemed fairly out of placeOverall the cookbook delivers basic variations on basic themes which frankly left me bored and uninspired Beginner cooks might find some value in the visuals but for comprehensive lessons in techniue and excellent recipes to boot I would steer them towards Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything Simple Recipes for Great Food

    I bought this cookbook after watching Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution documentary series I'm from West Virginia and it was filmed about 3 hours away from me in Huntington WV I loved the tv series and everything he had to say about nutrition so I couldn't resist supporting Jamie and attempting to make my life healthyI easily found all of the ingredients from the recipes I've cooked at my local Kroger It seemed a little expensive when I went shopping but each recipe seems to last for days I actually started cutting them in half since I only feed my boyfriend and myself Jamie added a lot of pictures of the cooking process for every recipe That was extremely helpful I hadn't cooked with a lot of the vegetables he uses so they often looked very strange almost disgusting But his photographs showed me I was doing everything correctly and that his looked just as strange It was also nice to see the sizes he would chop slice and cut things intoThere were so many great recipes and I haven't even cooked everything in it yet My favorite Pot Roast Meatloaf I've made it many times First for myself then for family dinners and potlucksI also loved the chapter on Indian food My favorite type of food is Indian Jamie made the recipes so easy and still filled with all those Indian flavors

    Absolutely outstanding This is now my favorite cookbook and I'll be buying it if I don't receive it for Christmas So far I've made the meatballs banana oatmeal scrambled eggs and chickan tikka masala curry The one time I tried to make meatballs before this recipe I overcooked them and they fell apart in the pasta Following the directions from this book my meatballs became fragrant with rosemary and held together well My husband loved them The oatmeal was delicious and the scrambled eggs recipe yielded perfect scrambled eggs Actually I've always always overcooked my eggs and my husband never really liked them so he was thrilled with the results this time around I was hesitant to try making curry because I doubted I could make it as good as the kind we get as take out but it was also perfect I think the cilantroyogurtalmond toppings really helped to make it so yummy There are colorful photos for EVERY recipe usually at least several of the process which I appreciated so much The recipes do rely heavily on fresh herbs but I was able to find a lot of things out of the book that I could make on a tight grocery budget with some small substitutions plain eggs instead of cage freeorganic etc

    I started reading several books last week most of them novels but the book that got me the most excited was–of all things–a cookbook I decided to order this book from the library after watching a couple episodes of “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” a show where the British chef comes to the American South and tries to reform the disgusting eating habits of the unhealthiest town in the world Jamie Oliver reveals and rebukes the greasy processed food that Americans eat trying to turn over a new leaf in the school lunch program at a public elementary schoolAfter waiting than two months for my hold reuest to be fulfilled as the 24th person in line at the library I finally picked up my copy of the cookbook Jamie’s Food Revolution Rediscover How to Cook Simple Delicious Affordable Meals Cookbooks aren’t generally a “read it from cover to cover” item but I found that this was one cookbook I couldn’t put down Jamie begins by telling the novice chef what tools every good kitchen should contain and what ingredients every pantry should be stocked with I made some notes on the latter for my next trip to Winco Then he launches into the recipesThe first section listed off a handful of twenty minute meals for people who are short on time With names like “Shrimp and Avacado with an Old School Marie Rose Sauce” I found that they did indeed look simple and delicious though maybe not uite as affordable as our usual fare The next section of the book was even intriguing “uick Pasta” The pasta dishes I usually make are a last ditch resort born of empty cupboards and small imagination Jamie offers exciting dishes like “Broccoli and Pesto Tagliatelle” containing only a handful of ingredients but looking mouthwateringly delicious in the full color picturesThe book proceeded with “Tasty Stir Fries” and “Easy Curries” I resolved then and there that I was going to make a curry that week something I had never before attempted A few days later I produced a passable “Chicken Tikka Masala” with a lovely sauce and decent chicken that would probably have been tender if my stovetop had a even heatThe next section contained recipes for salads This exemplified what I love about Jamie Oliver’s book–versatility In the salad section he tries to teach you general rules so that you can whip up your own salad creation The full color chart on page 119 has six rows of “kinds” of ingredients soft crunchy herby veggies cheese and toppings Each of the rows contains four items; for instance the “herby” row has mint basil italian parsley and arugula All you need to do is pick one ingredient from each row to come up with an awesome salad There are literally hundreds of combinations to choose fromThe second recipe that I cooked from this book was the “Beef and Ale Stew” and I must say that it turned out divine The portions for most of the main dishes are for 4 6 servings so we have half of the stew in the freezer waiting for another day Yesterday I was sorely tempted to take it out and heat it up for lunch but I resisted–knowing that someday soon I would want to put a delicious dinner on the table without doing any workI highly recommend this cookbook to beginner and expert chefs alike I like it so much that I ordered my own copy from com It should get here later this week
