This book was inspired by a big idea (and a bit of a mad one): to train a team of disadvantaged kids to become chefs and help them open a top-notch restaurant in London.
Jamie Oliver's no 1 bestseller, Jamie's Kitchen
This is the ultimate guide for people who love great food and want to cook. It's packed with clear, no-nonsense advice and inspiration, as well as over 100 brand new recipes from the cookery course and the restaurant.
Jamie's approach is honest and easy - this is not a heavy duty 'cook like a professional' book, weighed down with facts, figures and techniques. Jamie guides you through different cooking methods - from poaching and boiling, to char-grilling and pot-roasting. Jamie Oliver encourages you to have confidence, a sense of independence, a laugh and - importantly - to be the boss in your own kitchen.
Praise for Jamie's Kitchen:
'Jamie should be given the Victoria Cross' The Times
'Jamie offers lots of his chunky, hunky dishes for feeding the hungry, and lathers the whole lot with ladlefuls of encouragement' Daily Telegraph
