Jamie’s Kitchen Giveaway

Jamie’s Kitchen started as a television show. It began as an experiment with 15 unemployed, enthusiastic kids, and he trained them to be chefs. He also helped them open a restaurant, Fifteen, that has become the hottest dining spot in London. When England’s Channel 4 launched a tie-in series, more than four million people tuned in. The show premiers this fall in the U.S.

Jamie’s Kitchen-the book-is a cooking course. Both new and experienced cooks will learn a thing or two with this cookbook. Some of the cooking techniques you will learn about are making salads, cooking without heat, poaching and boiling, steaming, stewing and braising, roasting, grilling, and baking. How many cookbooks out there tell you these things? There are also a ton of one-of-a-kind, delicious recipes, such as prosciutto and pecorino, citrus-seared tuna with crispy noodles, herbs, and chili; smoked haddock risotto; and baked chocolate pudding. Jamie includes tips on how to take recipes in new directions and how to be an inspired grocery shopper-spotting what’s good, what’s in season, and what’s a good value. The only thing this book is missing is how to find great coupons for this food.

I personally love Jamie Oliver. This cookbook is great not only as a cookbook but as a coffee book table too. The pictures in here are phenomenal. You will get hungry just flipping through here. The directions are easy to follow, and the recipes in here are great. They aren’t the run of the mill things you find in most cookbooks. I do love that there isn’t other cookbook out there like this one!

The newly-designed 10th anniversary edition includes 20 new recipes. Meals in Minutes 10th Anniversary is a favorite cookbook because of its over 160 tips offering shortcuts and time-saving tricks to making mealtime relaxing and fun.

If you can’t find something you like in here, there is something wrong with you! This cookbook is like my blog — everything is explained very simply so you can mess it up. I love that!
