Jamie at Home : Cook Your Way to the Good Life Hardback
by Jamie Oliver
Discover the art of cooking simply and naturally with Jamie Oliver's bestselling Jamie at Home 'This book is very close to my heart.
It's about no-nonsense, simple cooking with great flavours 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 realise 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.' - JamieJamie at Home has a seasonal piece of veg as the star of each chapter and shares Jamie's favourite recipes for fresh ingredients you can grow in your own back garden.
Whether you're looking for the perfect gift for a friend (why not try Jamie's beautiful chutneys, pickled veg or homemade ketchup) or a healthy meal the whole family will enjoy like creamy Courgette Carbonara followed by Rhubarb and Custard Souffle, Jamie at Home has something for everyone. Inside Jamie at Home you'll find over 100 new recipes from Jamie Oliver, plus some basic planting information and tips if you fancy having a go at getting your hands dirty as well! 'There is only one Jamie Oliver. Great to watch. Great to cook' Delia Smith 'Simply brilliant cooking, and Jamie's recipes are a joy' Nigel Slater

Review by bertilak
Jamie Oliver is a successful celebrity chef, deservedly so. That allows him to have a huge vegetable garden in his back yard and to enjoy dishes made with pheasant, venison, and other expensive ingredients. I do not have those resources, so I find many of the fine recipes in this book to be unusable.
Review by Fliss88
Another brilliant book by Jamie Oliver. And this time, as he confesses on the first page, Jamie has fallen in love with his garden, discovered a hidden passion for growing all things edible, and shares some of his new found gardening tips, as well as many new, mouth-watering recipes. The book takes you through his growing year, the photos show what's growing, what's cooking and some beautiful British countryside. Once again Jamie is trying to convince us all by example, that good food isn't hard to grow or to cook, and to have your own, home grown produce right at the back door, is just the incentive we all need to get cooking. We don't all have the resources of Jamie Oliver, but what I always get from his books, is the urge to 'have a go', tweak a recipe a little and have fun in my kitchen. Jamie says it very simply, - "It just never occurred to me that it might be as easy as taking some seeds out of a packet and popping them into the ground. But it is!" …….. haha, said with the true innocence of a new gardener :)
