Jamie’s Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals’
by Jamie Oliver

This cookbook is different and exciting. Jamie’s mission is to get people to cook simple, wholesome meals at home to put an end to the processed food and fast food that has taken over our society! He asks us to pledge to learn a few recipes from the book and “pass them on”. Jamie believes that non-cooks can cook these meals and proves it by including some of these folks, in full-color, with their meals! He firmly believes that anyone can be taught a few simple dishes. If they learn to make a few recipes they will become hooked on real food and pass on the processed/fast foods. It is a admirable mission – and this cookbook is a great tool.

His message is, you can do this!! You can make healthy, delicious food, from scratch quickly and economically. Many of the recipes are not completely “healthy” — he loves butter & cream but they are real food – none of the additives found in processed foods/takeout. They are quick and simple to make, and will give just about anyone the confidence to continue in the kitchen. The recipes have pictures that make the process easy to follow. If you are familiar with Jamie, you will hear his “voice” through the book which is also fun.

The 20 minute meal section is terrific and is based on dishes that are usually ordered for takeout. He proves here that it is actually faster to cook the meals yourself – allowing you to use just a few simple ingredient to make quality meals.

We tested the Pan-fried Glazed Pork Chops. They came out absolutely delicious, and were very quick to throw together.

This is a perfect cookbook for anyone just staring to cook, anyone afraid to cook, even seasoned home cooks will find this cookbook inspiring.
