The author of such popular titles as The Naked Chef, Jamie's Kitchen, and Jamie's Italy, among others, he has written for the Saturday Times, served as Food Editor at GQ and Marie Claire magazines, and hosted the popular television show The Naked Chef.

We're very impressed so far. The recipes are easy and bursting with flavour. We favour comfort food normally, so this book was right in our wheelhouse!Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
I love this book! I've made a few things and everything has been great! There's quite a few curry/fish recipes in there so if you're not a fan I might skip this one.Published 6 months ago by Meg G.
Not the best, but has plenty of good recipes. I've tried about a third by now and I have to say they are tasty and somewhat healthy, also teaching some basics. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Pawel P
Love Jamie Oliver books. This one has quick dishes and ones that take a bit longer. Yes, he uses the food processor, yes you need pots. Read morePublished 8 months ago by S
