Save With Jamie : Shop Smart, Cook Clever, Waste Less – Jamie gets the nation cooking clever, shopping smart and wasting less with his new cookbook, Save with Jamie.
This year, I’ve got the message loud and clear that as everyone comes under bigger and bigger financial pressure, they want help to cook tasty, nutritious food on a budget – so this book was born completely out of public demand. Save with Jamie draws on knowledge and cooking skills to help you make better choices, showing you how to buy economically and efficiently, get the most out of your ingredients, save time and prevent food waste.
And there’s no compromise – I’m talking big flavours, comfort food that makes you happy, and colourful, optimistic dishes. Our biggest luxury is knowledge, whether times are hard or not, so get kitchen smart and smash the recession.
15 Minute Meals is Jamie’s simplest and most straightforward book yet. It pushes the concept of fast, everyday food to a new level, without compromising on flavour. It’s designed to excite and inspire people to prepare a balanced, nutritional, no-nonsense meal every night of the week.
It covers everything from homely British dishes, to Mediterranean family staples as well as Thai, Chinese and Indian-inspired dishes. The layouts are simple and easy to follow, and the punchy titles will grab you as you flick through.
This is Jamie’s most accessible book yet and is suitable for all ages and skill levels – once you start cooking this way, not only will you love it; you’ll never look back.
