Jamie Oliver grew up in his parents' country pub, the Cricketers in Clavering, where he started cooking at the age of eight, before studying at London's Westminster Catering College. He then went on to work with some of the top chefs in England namely Antonio Carluccio at the Neal Street Restaurant and Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers at the River Cafe. The author of such popular titles asThe Naked Chef, Jamie's Kitchen, and Jamie's Italy, among others, he has written for theSaturday Times, served as Food Editor at GQ and Marie Claire magazines, and hosted the popular television showThe Naked Chef. He is thirty-three and lives in London with his wife Jools and their daughters, Poppy and Daisy.
Cooking good food from scratch is a skill that can save you money, keep you healthy, and make you and your family and friends happy. What I've tried to do in this book is pick a whole load of meals that we all love to eat and break them down to make them as simple as possible. There are plenty of clear instructions and step-by-step pictures, so whether you're an accomplished cook or a complete beginner, you'll be able to enjoy cooking and achieve great results in the kitchen.

This book is inspired by all the people I've met who thought they could never and would never learn how to cook. I believe that good home cooking is one of the most essential, fundamental skills that every single person on this planet should have in order to look after themselves, their families, and their friends. This food revolution is all about people learning how to make a recipe, then teaching that recipe to their friends and family . . . if enough people do this, pretty soon everyone will be cooking. So cook something today, then PASS IT ON!

  • Good for a beginner.

    As a young person trying to learn to cook more than just Spaghettios and Totinos Crisp Crust Pizza, this book is a great first step. From how to properly cook an egg all the way to making your own curry paste, this is a very thorough but concise way to learn the essentials and more. I would recommend it to my friends and family. The only downside is that this book is written more for families than for a single person so if you're on your own, don't forget to divide the ingredients as needed. I learned this after making a pasta dish that will now sustain me for at least another week.

    I talked on the phone with my grandson this morning and asked how he liked the cookbook. My grandson is 14 and will be a freshman in high school. He said it was okay..but thought there were too many fish recipes. He said he does not like fish. (Note: his Mother does not like fish.) I ask him to select a recipe for me to enjoy when I visit later in the summer and start practicing his cooking. I mentioned to him that he might have to cook for himself someday and not to assume that all women can cook. I think he was trying to be "cool" by not over exclaiming about this book. But I am sure he likes having it.

    What a good cookbook good illustrations easy to follow recipes ,and some recipes are for two people which I found great as there is only my husband and I. healthy as well and the internet address for spices etc for peple like myself that live distant from large stores makes it easier to make most of the recipes I would highly recommend this book. Also the cover can be cleaned (messy cooks like me) need that.
