This is not a beginners cookery book, more 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 following:

1) 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 recipe.
2) They contain lots and lots of herbs, different sorts of oil etc etc. Which is fine and adds complexity to the flavour, but just puts off beginners. When JO was in Italy t

Dear Jamie,

I love your show and your determination to convince Americans to cook fresh food instead of eating processed crap. This might, however, work a little better if you considered writing for people who live in apartments and have no counter space. I just made your very lovely raspberry vanilla cheesecake recipe. (Oh! I just realized I completely left out the vanilla. Ah, well.) It also would have been helpful if you explained to me how to make orange and lemon zest. I had a vague idea th

First off, I want to commend the art team on this book: great text layout, gorgeous pictures, and excellent paper. But beyond the visual appeal, I'm at a loss for praise.

Granted, as an intermediate level cook, it doesn't look like I'm the target audience for his Food Revolution campaign, but I was bewildered to find recipes for things like plain oatmeal, boiled eggs, smoothies, and white rice. I know he's assuming only a passing familiarity with the stove, but many of these "recipes" can be foun
Absolutely outstanding. This is now my favorite cookbook, and I'll be buying it if I don't receive it for Christmas. So far I've made the meatballs, 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 ...more

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. I 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 more healthy.

I 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 da

Recommends it for: people who don't like to cook
I have been watching his TV show as well as downloading 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 complaint.(and there was "green stuff" it it ...more

Oh look, I'm British and my Mommy and Daddy let me cook in their restaurant and now I write books with a sprinkle of this and a handful of that.

Listen Jamie Oliver, don't call it a Food Revolution if you require alfalfa flour and ketchup in the same recipe or worse yet, call for canned goods as main ingredients. He should be ashamed of himself.

Blech. Hoped it would be better than this. I like the idea of good food cooked at home to feed families, but I didn't like the recipes. And honestly, I can't take one more vow in my life right now (learn one recipe from each chapter, vow to teach it to at least two more people). I get it Jamie, but honestly...

I started reading several books last week, most of them novels, but the book that got me the most excited was–of all things–a cookbook. I decided to order this book from the library after watching a couple episodes of “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution,” a show where the British chef comes to the American South and tries to reform the disgusting eating habits of the unhealthiest town in the world. Jamie Oliver reveals and rebukes the greasy, processed food that Americans eat, trying to turn over a ...more
