Jamie at Home: Cook Your Way to the Good Life by Jamie Oliver
Jamie at Home: Cook Your Way to the Good Life

AshleyG, January 30, 2010

This cookbook from Brit chef Jamie Oliver might not strike you as one of the best books of the decade. But I'm voting it in because I adore everything about it from the country-casual cover to the seasonal chapter splits to the vibrant language. Who else uses words like bunk and brilliant and pep in their recipe instructions? And then there are the recipes for what Oliver calls "proper feel good food," accompanied by richly textured photographs. There's grilled lamb kofta kebabs, squid salad with grilled leeks and a warm chorizo dressing and rhubarb and sticky ginger crumble - all dishes we'd be incredibly lucky to eat. This is a cookbook that's instructive, entertaining and a must-have addition to any cook's library.
