"The Naked Chef" is for people who want great modern food but who also want things simple - people who work for a living, so haven't got time or energy to spend all night cooking. It is all about giving people confidence and getting them to feel at ease in the kitchen. This book presents recipes for different occasions, whether you want healthy food, portable grub, one-pot meals, ideas for cooking for two or with kids, or food that is as "cheap as chips". As well as Jamie's favourite recipes, he looks at "fridge friends" (all the lovely, snacky things that can be kept in the fridge) and a chapter is dedicated to "foody prezzies" for Christmas and birthday surprises.
About the Author
Having first studied at Westminster Catering College, Jamie Oliver went on to work with some of the top chefs in the country - namely Antonio Carluccio at the Neal Street Restaurant and Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers at the River Cafe. He is now running the restaurant at Monte's in Knightsbridge, London and is the face of Sainsbury's. He continues to write for the Saturday Times and GQ magazine. He is 25 and lives in London.
Page for page, this omnibus encompasses the full spectrum of vegetarian cooking. Covering not only the basics of vegetarian fare, Dragonwagon (Dairy Hollow House Soup & Bread Cookbook) draws not only on the traditional beans, tofu and pasta staples but also on the influences of other cultures. From the Indian Dal through the Sweet Sesame-Gingered Dressing to the Eggplant Fans, the volume is redolent with herbs and spices and seasoned with a large pinch of loving care. Passionate about her food, Dragonwagon intersperses anecdotes throughout the book chronicling her life and philosophies as well as those of her husband, who died during its writing. Each chapter has its own introduction to promote and inform be it on the health benefits of beans or the versatility of soy before following on with the relevant recipes. The 1,000-plus recipes are augmented with multiple variations that fill the margins along with menu suggestions and helpful notes. Many recipes are suitable for vegans (a growing portion of the vegetarian market), but are just as appealing to the meat-lover who wants a change. Although the book often feels cluttered with information, with its multi-column layout, sidebars and line-drawings, the overall impression is vibrant and lively. (Oct.)

The Naked Chef is back with another exuberant, engaging collection of fresh, vibrant recipes. This time, he includes some homier dishes in a chapter called "Comfort Grub," his take on some traditional English favorites. Now that he's a family man, there's also a chapter on cooking with kids. In general, Oliver's food is often quite simple, but he also offers a chapter of "Quick Fixes," delicious dishes that require minimal preparation and cleanup (many of them are cooked "in a bag," a foil pouch). Full-page color photographs illustrate many of the recipes, and there are also shots of Oliver, with family and friends. The Naked Chef hasn't lost any of his enthusiasm, and neither have his many fans. An essential purchase. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
