Book Review: Jamie's Ministry of Food by Jamie Oliver - Reviewed by pcoutas (05 Jun 2011)
I'm slowly making my way through the recipes in this book and haven't had a fail yet! Unlike many of Jamie's other books, this one doesn't require you to traipse all over town going from gourmet butcher to specialised French-import-only grocer to source ingredients. They're all at Coles or Woolies! Brilliant! I especially like his approach to Indian curries where he advocates the use of pre-made curry pastes - no more admonishments of the benefits of mortar and pestle for busy cooks.
I don't know about learning to cook in 24 hours, it's been far longer than that for me, but I've certainly learned to eat better because of this book.
Jamie Oliver started cooking at his parents' pub, The Cricketers, in Clavering, Essex, at the age of eight, and quickly developed a passion for cooking which continued through his training at the Neal Street restaurant and The River Cafe. In 2002 he founded Fifteen restaurant in London and the associated charity the Fifteen Foundation, which continues to train disadvantaged young people to become chefs. There are now three other Fifteen restaurants in the world. Jamie has also recently started up the Jamie's Italian chain of high street restaurants. In 2005 Jamie led a campaign to improve the quality of school dinners in the UK and through the Feed Me Better campaign caused the government to substantially change its policy towards school food. Jamie continues to write for publications in the UK and around the world. He lives in London and Essex with his wife, Jools, and their daughters, Poppy and Daisy.
