The Naked Chef

This is the book that started it all. The Naked Chef, Jamie Oliver’s first cookbook, was written after his first tv series launched. Jamie had already taken England by storm with his fresh and enthusiastic approach to cooking, his cute lisp and the yob language that has made him famous.

The Naked Chef is aimed at a younger generation of cooks who, in the early stages of his career, Jamie believed needed the most help in the kitchen. The book takes a realistic view of the limitations of a small kitchen with basic cooking equipment that often plague young cooks.

Jamie takes great pains to avoid culinary jargon and to keep the ideas simple and fresh. The recipes, many inspired by Jamie’s time at Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray’s River Café, run the gamut from soup and pasta, through to meat, vegetables, breads and desserts.

This is a great cookbook for anyone who is starting out in cooking.
