Jamie Oliver

Jamie at Home cookbookI’ve already admitted to not being very innovative in the kitchen.  I’m pretty good with simple recipes, and I’m even better with clear instructions, but I’m not great with throwing things into a pot and creating dinner on a whim.

This is why I love Jamie.  He makes cooking seem easy.  In both his television programs and in his cookbooks, he talks to you like he’s talking to a friend in his kitchen. He makes it look totally obvious.  He’ll say things like…’throw whatever ‘veg’ you want in the pot — it doesn’t matter, or ‘it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t look perfect, it’s about the taste’, ‘throw a handful of this on that, add a good slug of olive oil, a nob of butter’, etc.

Nothing too fancy.  Good, hearty and wholesome meals.  Simple and easy.

I’ve just added to my collection of Jamie Oliver cookbooks with his latest one, Jamie at Home: Cook Your Way to the Good Life .  In it he also explains how to grow veggies in your garden, how to look after them, when to cook with them, etc.  Making it all look easy, of course.

At the moment I would so love to have a garden to grow veggies in. Not possible in a Parisian inner city apartment, I am afraid!

During the phase of my addiction to the food channel i loved jamie’s tv shows!
I have just one book by him, but I loved everything I made out of it!
