Jamie Oliver: 7 Ways

Written by

Jamie Oliver


20 August 2020

Who is the author: Best known for inspiring the world to cook from scratch with his quick, nutritious and delicious recipes, Jamie Oliver has been a household name since he catapulted into the limelight as The Naked Chef in 1999 and has since gone on to sell over 45 million cookbooks worldwide. His most recent cookbook, VEG, has become the best-selling vegetarian cookbook of all time. There really is only one Jamie!

What’s it about: Having changed the way we cook and eat for the better with 5 Ingredients and VEG, Jamie Oliver is back with yet another kitchen revolution, and this time it’s all about helping you make the most of the ingredients you buy week in, week out. Jamie has had a good look inside the nation’s shopping trolley and picked out 18 of our favourite supermarket purchases, from chicken to mince, mushrooms to broccoli. In 7 Ways he shares 7 different simple, affordable and achievable ways to make the most of each of these household heroes, helping you get inspired in the kitchen without having to shake up your shopping list or ditch the food you like to eat.

Recipes we love: Expect time-saving traybakes, fun-but-nutritious fakeaways and plenty of midweek winners that slot seamlessly into the end of a busy day at work or with the kids.

Perfect for: If you find yourself returning to the same recipes time and time again and could use a little Jamie magic to help you reinvent your repertoire without having to completely change your routine, this is the book for you.

Five more reasons to buy Jamie's 7 Ways:

1. All 120 recipes are snappy, simple and require a max of just eight common supermarket ingredients (plus a few pantry staples).

2. You'll find loads of healthy everyday meal ideas to choose from with nutrition information clearly displayed on every recipe page.

3. Remember the handy way recipes were presented in 5 Ingredients? You'll find the same format in 7 Ways with individual photographs of every ingredient so you can quickly see what you need without needing to scour the ingredient lists.

4. Find just the dish you're looking for with Jamie's fast meal-time inspiration guide in the opening pages.

5. In true Jamie style, 7 Ways shares cheats and shortcuts to help you maximise flavour without having to spend hours in the kitchen. Hello, 30-minute fish bake.
