Best Jamie Oliver Cookbooks Reviews
Jamie Oliver, Chef
Jamie Oliver aka The Naked Chef
Jamie Oliver, aka The Naked Chef is my favorite celebrity chef. Not only is he easy on the eyes and has a disarming personality, but this man can cook. His cookbooks let his personality come through as well. Here are two favorite cookbooks of mine by Jamie Oliver, The Naked Chef.
Favorite Jamie Oliver Cookbook Review
Cook With Jamie: My Guide to Making You a Better Cook
This cookbook is fun just to read. Jamie attempts to take the stress out of cooking with this hugely popular cookbook. This cookbook by The Naked Chef goes over cooking basics, but includes recipes fit for a gourmet restaurant. Jamie doesn't use hard and fast measurements. The style is more of a dash of this, a splash of that. This may turn some cooks away. But it is Oliver's way of showing that you don't have to be anal to make most dishes.
Besides recipes, My Guide to Making You a Better Cook plans on attacking the task in other ways. There are several photographic tutorials in the book. They show how to accomplish cooking skills like cleaning fresh lobster.
Favorite Italian Cookbook Review
Jamie's ItalyHe may be British, but The Naked Chef knows how to make delicious Italian dishes. If you love authentic Italian food, you've got to try this Italian cookbook. Not only are the dishes fantastic, but the writing throughout the book is a joy to read. Oliver recounts his travels throughout Italy as he teaches his Italian cooking methods. Many of the recipes are from Sicily. This cookbook doesn't limit itself to just well-known, popular Italian recipes, either. It includes traditional Italian recipes such as rabbit and fish.
Other Jamie Oliver Cookbooks
If you haven't used any of Jamie Oliver's cookbooks, you really should do yourself a favor and buy one. Besides the two favorites I mentioned, Jamie has also published Jamie's Dinners: The Essential Family Cookbook, The Naked Chef, Happy Days with the Naked Chef, Jamie's Kitchen, and The Naked Chef Takes Off, Oliver's Twist, and other excellent cookbooks for beginning cooks, gourmet chefs, and everyone in between.
