Jamie's Food Revolution : Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals
Cooking good food from scratch is a skill that can save you money, keep you healthy, and make you and your family and friends happy. What I've tried to do in this book is pick a whole load of meals that we all love to eat and break them down to make them as simple as possible. There are plenty of clear instructions and step-by-step pictures, so whether you're an accomplished cook or a complete beginner, you'll be able to enjoy cooking and achieve great results in the kitchen. This book is inspired by all the people I've met who thought they could never and would never learn how to cook. I believe that good home cooking is one of the most essential, fundamental skills that every single person on this planet should have in order to look after themselves, their families, and their friends. This food revolution is all about people learning how to make a recipe, then teaching that recipe to their friends and family . . . if enough people do this, pretty soon everyone will be cooking. So cook something today, then PASS IT ON!

I think this is a great book for people starting out in the world of cooking and also good for people who have been cooking for a long time. I bought this as a Christmas gift for my brother, who just moved out of home and I copied down quite a few of the recipes for myself.show moreby Abby Rudakov
This a complete RIP OFF. I felt completely cheated after buying this. It is an exact copy of his "Jamie's Ministry of Food" just renamed for the american market. DO NOT BUY IF YOU ALREADY HAVE "JAMIE'S MINISTRY OF FOOD"show moreby Peter Manton
