'20 years on . . . Does it stand the test of my kitchen? The answer is a resounding yes. Jamie's genius is in creating maximum flavour from quick, easy-to-follow recipes . . . It hasn't dated at all' Daily Telegraph
Jamie's very first book - the one that started it all - now in a beautiful hardback edition with a new introduction written by Jamie Oliver.
The Naked Chef was born out of the idea to strip down restaurant techniques to their bare essentials and create cool dishes for everyone to cook at home, and get boys back in the kitchen! It's all about having a laugh with fun, delicious food from a young person's perspective.
You'll quickly build up a fool proof repertoire of simple and delicious recipes without the need for fancy equipment or ingredients.
Delicious and simple recipes from the book include:
* Fresh TOMATO and SWEET CHILLI PEPPER SOUP with SMASHED BASIL and OLIVE OIL
* Fast-roasted COD with PARSLEY, OREGANO, CHILLI and LIME
* Perfect ROAST CHICKEN
* MUSHROOM RISOTTO with GARLIC, THYME and PARSLEY
* Simple CHOCOLATE TART
The Naked Chef is the perfect all-round cookbook, with chapters on Soups, Salads & Dressings, Pasta, Fish & Shellfish, Meat, Poultry & Game, Vegetables, Pulses, Risotto & Couscous, Bread, Desserts and Stocks, Sauces, Bits, Bobs, This, That & the Other! Inside you'll also find larder lists, tips and tricks.
