At the risk of sounding overly dramatic, Jamie Oliver has changed my life. Well, at least my life as a cook. I've always thought of myself as a mediocre cook - but Jamie's Dinners has made me a very good cook (and my family agrees). I started with the simpler recipes and moved my way up (although even his "harder" recipes are easy to follow) -- and I agree with the other reviewer, each recipe is hands-down delicious. He's not particular about measurements, either - I love his "handful of this," "glug of that" approach. I now have four of his cookbooks - but again, like the other reviewer, this one is still my favourite. He's made me see that I can cook well for my family and friends AND have it be a pleasant, healthy experience.

I have four Jamie Oliver cook books and I enjoy all of them, but this one is hands down my favorite! I have been blown away by every recipe I have tried. The Tomato sauce seems so simple, it's hardly even a recipe, but whenever I serve it I get rave reviews. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Hardcover
I love Jamie Oliver's books, and his philosophy, because he encourages healthy, sane and ethical use of great food products, to make lovely and tasty stuff. I think highly of all his books: every one I read pushed me one step further towards loving to cook for me and all my loved ones!

However, this book is labeled as a family cookbook, which I believe to be a bit mis-leaded. It's an ideal book for a young couple, but most of the recipes in here are not what I would necessarily recommend for a family with more than one child. It is remarkably interesting for the working folks (such as my boyfriend and I), as it gives plenty of ideas for healthy and delicious lunches, quick dinners for when we get back home too tired or too hungry to fuss around more than 10 minutes, and more sophisticated stuff for when you fancy something more special. He also covers excellent basics and crowd-pleasers, and gives good advice on how to play with them. Note that he gets a bit exotic, so this is not a recipe book for those afraid to try new things. You need a minimal taste for adventure to get into some of his stuff.

As with his other books, it is plainly explained so that even the completely inexperienced cooks can get amazing results, it's beautifully laid-out with great pictures, and the conversational style makes the book a lot more engaging than boring step-by-step instructions.

My only disappointment was the salad chapter, in which I didn't find anything particularly interesting (as opposed to the salad chapter in "Jamie's food revolution", which was amazing!).
