Jamie's Quick & Easy Food


Jamie's Quick & Easy Food

English chef, author and restaurateur Jamie Oliver began cooking at his parents' pub, The Cricketers, in Clavering, Essex, at the age of eight. After leaving school he began a career as a chef that took him to The River Cafe in London, where he was famously spotted by a television production company. His television and publishing career began in 1999 with The Naked Chef series. His latest project, JAMIE'S QUICK & EASY FOOD, offers the ultimate set of go-to recipes that are quick to prepare and easy to remember - perfect for those who love their grub, but don't have the time or energy for complicated cooking. Using all his culinary know-how, Jamie has developed a collection of creative and tasty dishes using just five ingredients, plus a few basics from your cupboards: olive oil, extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, sea salt and black pepper. His recipes - which include egg fried rice, Thai-style crispy sea bass, sticky kickin' wings, and more - are perfect for busy days and made with the minimum number of elements to deliver maximum flavor. Whether you're a whizz in the kitchen or a complete novice, by using these killer ingredient combos and timesaving tricks, even the most time-challenged cook can deliver a dish to bring the house down.
