Lls banana oatmeal scrambled eggs and chickan tikka masala curry The one time I tried to make meatballs before this recipe I overcooked them and they fell apart in the pasta Following the directions from this book my meatballs became fragrant with rosemary and held together well My husband loved them The oatmeal was delicious and the scrambled eggs recipe yielded perfect scrambled eggs Actually I ve always always overcooked my eggs and my husband never really liked them so he was thrilled with the results
this time around I was hesitant to try making curry because I time around I was hesitant to try making curry because I I could make it as good as the kind we get as take out but it was also perfect I think the cilantroyogurtalmond toppings really helped to make it so yummy There are colorful photos for EVERY recipe usually at least several of the process which I appreciated so much The recipes do rely heavily on fresh herbs but I was able to find a lot of things out of the book that I could make on a tight grocery budget with some small substitutions plain eggs instead of cage freeorganic etc This is not a beginners cookery book intermediate It is full of some good recipes 6 out of 8 good 2 bad so far but they are chef recipes in that they do the following1 They suddenly at the end say add boiled potatoes or any other items that will take 20 mins without ever mentioning it previously in the recipe2 They contain lots and lots of herbs different sorts of oil etc etc Which is fine and adds complexity to the flavour but ust puts off beginners When JO was in Italy the locals gave him a hard time for over complicating food and not allowing the simple underlying flavours to come through and he does do this3 You can double most of the timings unless you are a good cook or you have made the items 2 or 3 times before or you too have an assistan 5 stars English hardcover present from Jop great recipes from Oliver to make with not to mutch to spent Loving it I bought this cookbook after watching Jamie Oliver s Food Revolution documentary series I m from West Virginia and it was filmed about 3 hours away from me in Huntington WV filmed about 3 hours away from me in Huntington WV loved the tv series and everything he had to say about nutrition so I couldn t resist supporting Jamie and attempting to make my life healthyI easily found all of the ingredients from the recipes I ve cooked at my local Kroger It seemed a little expensive when I went shopping but each recipe seems to last for days I actually started cutting them in half since I only feed my boyfriend and myself Jamie added a lot of pictures of the cooking process for every recipe That was extremely helpful I hadn t cooked with a lot of the vegetables he uses so they often looked very strange almost disgusting But his photographs showed me I was doing everything correctly and that his looked ust as strange It was also nice to see the sizes he would chop slice and cut things intoThere were so many great recipes and I haven t even cooked everything in it yet My favorite Pot Roast Meatloaf I ve made it many times First for myself then for family dinners and potlucksI also loved the chapter on Indian food My favorite type of food is Indian Jamie made the recipes so easy and still filled with all those Indian flavors I have been watching
HIS TV SHOW AS WELL AS TV show as well as his podcast from the Minestry of Food and it has been so fun to get into the ease of these recipies I am an experienced home cook but this book put a lot of great and really easy ideas into play for me Philip who never cooks much has taken to making dinners on Sat night and made the Chicken Chow Mein and it was seriously one of the best stir frys I have eaten Even our kids chowed down without complaintand there was green stuff it it I think Jamie Oliver is a serious pioneer of food reform in the UK and I respect him highly for the work he does getting school kids the government and the common person to think about what they are eating and where it came fro. Ry single person on this planet should have in order to look after themselves their families and their friends This food revolution is all about people learning how to make a recipe then teaching that recipe to their friends and family if enough people do this pretty soon everyone will be cooking So cook something today then PASS IT ON. ,
