Review Text

British television's newest, youngest and hippest celebrity chef Oliver's first book is full of simple ideas and trends for smart modern cooks, who enjoy making utterly delicious dishes. He is skilled at describing the texture and handling techniques when making fresh pasta, willing you to enjoy the process as much as he does. His unpretentious, easy-to-follow recipes inspire the reader to delve into bread-making the Italian way, to create soups in minutes and to roast lamb in six different ways. This book affirms that Oliver's generation is truly passionate about food. Review by ROSE GRAY Editor's note: Rose Gray is one half, with Ruth Rogers, of The River Cafe team. Their books include The River Cafe Cook Books 1 and 2, Italian Kitchen and the forthcoming River Cafe Green Cook Book. (Kirkus UK)show more
