From cooking sensation Jamie Oliver comes an entirely brand-new cookbook that offers a culinary course for novices and pros alike.
Jamie's Kitchen -- the television show -- began as an experiment and turned into a phenomenon. It started when Jamie took in 15 unemployed, enthusiastic kids, trained them to be chefs, and helped them open a restaurant, Fifteen, that has become the hottest dining spot in London. When England's Channel 4 launched a tie-in series, more than four million people tuned in. The show premiers this fall in the U.S.
Jamie's Kitchen -- the book -- is laid out as a cooking course and will inspire readers of all levels. Some of the cooking techniques included are making salads, cooking without heat, poaching and boiling, steaming, stewing and braising, roasting, grilling, and baking. In the process, Jamie shares one-of-a-kind, delicious recipes, such as prosciutto and pecorino, citrus-seared tuna with crispy noodles, herbs, and chili; smoked haddock risotto; and baked chocolate pudding.
Jamie includes tips on how to take recipes in new directions and how to be an inspired grocery shopper -- spotting what's good, what's in season, and what's a good value. Most important, Jamie encourages budding cooks to have confidence and a sense of independence, and to be master of the kitchen!
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 London. He is now running his new restaurant, Fifteen, in London. He has written for the Saturday Times and was food editor at GQ and Marie Claire magazines. He lives in London with his wife, Jools, and their daughter, Poppy Honey.
Jaimie Oliver's recipes are easy to read and so original. He cooks in a natural and healthy way. This is what drew me into ordering his book. Thank you, Ranee C. Hayes
Jamie's Kitchen is a beautiful book, large with wonderful picturs. I enjoyed reading his comments and looking at the delicious pictures, however the recipes were way over my head. He uses a lot of unusual ingredients. It is a great book for someone that just enjoys books or is a chef.
Great book, but recipes use some ingredients that aren't readily available in my area. If you PLAN a dinner and have time to seek ingredients it is most impressive and tasty. Not really practical for the everyday chef. Easy reading and Jamie is a hoot!!
I bought this as a gift for my 20 year old son, who will be spending his first summer away from home this year, and having to feed himself -- no Mom, no Dad, no Dining Hall. He enjoys good food, and is a Jamie Oliver fan, though he hasn't done a lot of cooking. While he'll no doubt need some simpler recipes to get along, I hope this gorgeous book and the food it sets forth will remain a target for him to aim at in the coming years.

A good way to quickly chop leafy herbs like basil is to do a chiffonade. This simply means to stack the leaves on top of each other, then roll horizontally and slice with a sharp knife.
