Home is where the heart is...

This book is very close to my heart. It's about no-nonsense, simple cooking with great flavors all year round. When I began writing it, I didn't really know what recipes I would come up with, but something began to inspire me very quickly...my vegetable patch!

I came to realize last year that it's not always about looking out at the wider world for inspiration. Being at home, feeling relaxed and open, can also offer this. I love to spend time at home in the village where I grew up, working with the boss, Mother Nature, in my garden and seeing all my beautiful veggies coming out of the ground.

Inside you'll find over one hundred new recipes, plus some basic planting information and tips if you fancy having a go at getting your hands dirty as well!

Review:

"Each chapter includes gardening information...and there are dozens of gorgeous color photographs. Highly recommended." Library Journal

Synopsis:

With this companion book to his new Food Network show, the irrepressible, much-loved chef returns with a new collection of more than 100 fresh, healthy recipes as well as advice on growing vegetables.

About the Author

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 England — namely Antonio Carluccio at the Neal Street Restaurant and Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers at the River Café. He writes for the Sunday Telegraph and News of the World and has columns in magazines all over the world. Jamie is now running Fifteen restaurant, one of the best restaurants in London, and he started and continues to be involved with the Fifteen Foundation, which provides training and mentoring for disadvantaged young people. He lives in London with his wife, Jools, and their daughters, Poppy and Daisy.

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.

I just happened upon this book at the local grocery store but didn't hesitate to purchase it as I've always enjoyed Jamie Oliver's cookbooks. His writing has always been down to earth and he seems to 'relish' (pun intended!) any opportunity to educate the public about making healthy, delicious eating practical and realistic. He's forever 'encouraging' us to eat responsibly...with a healthy dose of common sense and absolute sincere appreciation for where our food comes from and in which form it takes on our plates. His humour and generous spirit shine through, as always.
As a gardener I especially appreciated the way he's chosen to write a very simple book that includes information on growing your own food, making ethical (without being too preachy!) food choices and most of all...simply and truly enjoying quality, delicious REAL food.
Good job, Jamie!
