Jamie Oliver’s second book, The Return of the Naked Chef, is “for normal people who want shortcuts and tips; people who want to make simple day-to-day meals different and absolutely fantastic or something a little bit more fruity and indulgent,” says Jamie.
Taking a tour through all the meals of the day, The Return of the Naked Chef starts with a series of beautiful breakfasts including a figs, honey and ricotta or homemade yogurt. The tapas, munchies and snacks such as slow cooked and stuffed baby bell peppers or marinated squid are great party nibbles.
Main courses such as pappardelle with spicy sausage meat and mixed wild mushrooms and the wok cooked fragrant mussels are easy to prepare and true crowd-pleasers.
Never one to shy away from sharing his passion and teaching a lesson or two, Jamie focuses on growing your own herb garden, drying herbs and how to make some great rubs and marinades.
The Return of the Naked Chef is a great book to have on your shelf for last minute inspiration and simple ideas.
