5 Ingredients – Quick Easy Food

by Jamie Oliver

Penguin Books

 

Jamie Oliver started cooking at his parents' pub, The Cricketers, in Clavering, Essex, at the age of eight. After leaving school he began a career as a chef that took him to the River Café, where he was spotted by a television production company.

His television and publishing career began in 1999 with The Naked Chef series. Since then he has set up Fifteen restaurant in London, changed school dinners in the UK and set out to impact home cooking and this emission sees him continuing his path:

As the title suggest, the premise is by stripping down your shopping list and using just five ingredients, cleverly combined, to conjure up quite a variety of exciting food – and pronto, whether it's finished and on the table in a flash, or after minimal hands-on prep, you've let the oven do the hard work for you. In essence: Spending a little time to deliver a lot of flavour - no-fuss, budget-friendly dishes that you can be rustled up any day of the week.

An ideal companion for busy people.

With over 130 recipes, and chapters on Chicken, Beef, Pork, Lamb, Fish, Eggs, Veg, Salads, Pasta, Rice & Noodles and Sweet Things, there's plenty of quick and easy recipe inspiration to choose from. 

Every recipe is accompanied by a visual ingredient guide, serving size, timings, a short, easy-to-follow method, and quick-reference nutritional information.

Clear, concise and nicely put together.

Each left hand page shows you the 5 ingredients down the left side and has the nutritional info along the bottom.

The right hand page is a full colour photograph of the finished dish.

There is an appendix with nutritional notes as to how to balance your plate with Veg and Fruit - carbs - Proteins - Dairy - fats and Oils.

With fewer ingredients, Jamie is hoping to make people more aware of what is going into their food – something he is keen to do himself as he embarked on a nutrition course three years ago and is now studying for his masters.
