One: Simple One-Pan Wonders – Jamie Oliver
If I ever get to choose what chef I’d like to meet in real life it’s definitely Jamie Oliver. His cooking shows and books taught me a lot and I really love his down-to-earth approach to just about anything.
I have quite the cookbook collection and some books are just full of recipes with ingredients that can’t be found easily or that cost too much to just use in 1 recipe. “One” is nothing like that at all. The first 28 page are all focused around fresh lasagna sheets with 5-7 extra ingredients ranging from garlic to lemons to smoked salmon. It really is an all-round book as well, with a veggie chapter, a chapter on batch cooking, chapters focusing on meat/fish/chicken/eggs which is the perfect combination for anyone who eats a balanced diet.
As usual, the photos are shot by legend David Loftus who is a fantastic inspiration for food photographers. Every Jamie cookbook is both an inspiration for me in terms of recipes, but also in terms of photography!
As with the last book tip, I’ll be testing 2 recipes from the book, but I can safely say it’s going to be very hard to pick what to make first as I am currently browsing through the book and am yet to find one recipe that I’m not interested in. The batch cooking chapter is quite short though, but I’m secretly hoping he might write a new book focusing on batch-cooking only as it’s a great way to save time for those with busy lives!
In ONE, Jamie Oliver will guide you through over 120 recipes for tasty, fuss-free and satisfying dishes cooked in just one pan. What’s better: each recipe has just eight ingredients or fewer, meaning minimal prep (and washing up) and offering maximum convenience.
Packed with budget-friendly dishes you can rustle up any time, ONE has everything from delicious work from home lunches to quick dinners the whole family will love; from meat-free options to meals that will get novice cooks started.
With chapters including:
· Veggie Delights
· Celebrating Chicken
· Frying Pan Pasta
· Batch Cooking
· Puds & Cakes
Simple dishes like Juicy Tahini Chicken, Hassleback Aubergine Pie and Squodgy Croissant Loaf will soon become your firm new favourites.
There are plenty more no-fuss, tasty recipes that make ONE sit alongside 5 Ingredients and 15-Minute Meals as your go-to kitchen companions.
