For Jamie Oliver, food is all about happy days - not just cooking superbly fresh and funky ingredients, but good fun, great eating and top-quality time spent with friends and family. Now Jamie, one of Britain's best-loved chefs, gives us his third book, 'Happy Days'.
Jamie believes in finding the best ingredients and making tasty, easy, sociable food with the minimum of fuss. Like his first two books, 'Happy Days' is filled with fantastic salads, pastas, meat, fish, breads and desserts for all occasion. He gives tips on shopping and how to find the best produce in 'Shortcuts To Shopping'. There are some old favourites in 'Comfort Grub', and in 'Quick Fixes' he whips up really quick, tasty dinners perfect for those late nights back from work.
The 'Kids' Club' chapter is all about catching kids' attention and getting them interested in food. It's a starting-point for children, to encourage them to have a go at other things in the book with their parents. Get them squashing tomatoes, pouring olive oil, pitting olives and making bread in no time - they'll love it. A chapter is also dedicated to 'Fridge Friends' (lovely, snacky things like preserved lemons or marinated feta that can be kept in the fridge) and 'Foody Prezzies' - perfect for Christmas and birthday surprises.
Enjoy yourself, get stuck in . . . happy days!
