Jamie's Kitchen

Who's the author? The one and only Jamie Oliver: bestselling author, chef, restaurateur, campaigner and one of the most influential people in the food industry. During a 20-year television and publishing career he has inspired millions of people to enjoy cooking from scratch and eating fresh, delicious food.

What's it about? Jamie's Kitchen, which accompanied the 2004 TV show which saw Jamie train 15 unemployed kids to be chefs, is the ultimate guide for people who love great food and want to further their cooking skills. In Jamie's Kitchen, Jamie walks you through techniques like poaching, braising, baking, grilling and pot-roasting in his no-fuss, accessible style. Laid out like a cooking course, this book will inspire cooks of all levels with techniques that range from making salads to searing tuna to rolling and folding ravioli. 

Jamie includes tips on how to take recipes in new directions and how to be an inspired grocery shopper by looking out for what's fresh, in season and good value. In true Jamie fashion, he encourages budding cooks to have the confidence to become a pro in the kitchen.

Recipes we love: Citrus-seared tuna with crispy noodles, Moroccan Lamb Stew, Fillet Steak with Celeriac Mash and Baked Chocolate Pudding.

Perfect for: Cooks learning how to further or perfect their skills, budding chefs seeking clear, no-nonsense advice and anyone seeking inspiration to master their cooking techniques.
