Product Description

Jamie Oliver (The Naked Chef) knows the best places to buy food in London. In this DVD, Oliver's Twist, Jamie takes us to his favorite stores, and then it's back to his place to cook up fantastic food for family and friends. In Jamie's unique style he gives culinary advice and great tips as he grills, grinds, roasts and fries. And with food on the table, let the good times roll! This DVD contains 7 classic episodes from his Oliver's Twist TV series as seen on the Food Network.

"I think that the show's success is down to me being me - an ordinary bloke who's just passionate about good food - and people can relate to that. Even now, blokes who've never done more than open a packet come up to me and tell me that they've started cooking. That's the best result ever as all I ever wanted to do was to make food accessible to everyone; to show that you can make mistakes - I do all the time - but it doesn't matter." -Jamie Oliver

EPISODES
1) World Cup Breakfast: After a big night out what better way for Jamie and his mates to recover than a morning watching soccer with a full Oliver breakfast.
2) Scarlet Division: Jamie drums up some vegetarian tukka as he gets together with his band for a jamming session.
3) The Bill: When Jamie pays a visit to his mates on the set of The Bill, three cops are delighted to accept his invitation to dinner.
4) Wild City: Horseradish outside your house? Rocket by the roadside? Jamie and his mentor Gennaro show how, even in the middle of a city, Mother Nature does provide.
5) Tiger: Jamie's grandmother, Tiger, and her friends are in London for a day out, so Jamie invites them over for afternoon tea.
6) Bollywood: Jamie goes Indian as he hosts a Bollywood night with all the trimmings.
7) Chocolate: As a bribe for babysitting Poppy, Jamie offers the girls the one thing they can't resist chocolate, and lots of it.

One could do worse than be a part of Jamie Oliver's life. His daughter's babysitters are treated to the young chef's gourmet-chocolate tiramisu, his hard-partying mates drag themselves to morning-after fry-up feasts and Bloody Mary pitchers, and his band (London's Scarlet Division) fill up on exquisite vegetarian cuisine. This collection of seven Oliver's Twist episodes, originally broadcast in America on the Food Network, are enormous fun, grounded in the gregarious star's daily life of family, friends, mentors, suppliers--even the local cops. Absolutely everyone parades through Oliver's surprisingly modest kitchen to dine on lovingly prepared masterworks fusing tradition with improvisational brilliance. Whether the menu calls for high tea, a Bollywood theme night, or a gorgeous health-food breakfast, Oliver's affection for his work and his people makes for addictive viewing. --Tom Keogh

Young, funny, and a GREAT chef - what more could you ask for? Jaime's style is so original and his antics are sure to make this DVD a hit (as the show already is)! When you read recipe's out of a cookbook it's quite a bit different than actually watching them be made. For me, visual learning is best, which will make having this disc on hand a huge benefit. Jamie's a stud, and you just can't beat his style. Hopefully we'll see some more DVD's on the way...?!

I've caught an advance look at this DVD. I love the fact that he has such an informal style of cooking. There are no hard and fast measurements, just cooking by feel and instinct which is great! His show makes cooking for friends look like such an easy and fun process. If you've seen his show, read his books, or other videos, this is a great addition to your collection.

Jamie Oliver, hands down, is the most entertaining chef on broadcast television. I was completely entertained by this DVD. It allowed me to navigate from recipe to recipe, which was so nice to use when preparing some of his amazingly delicious and simple recipes. After watching this DVD I feel as though I could prepare any gourmet meal for any number of guests. And did I forget to mention how freaking adorable he is. I will admit the first time I watched it I could only focus on his adorable features and charisma and then I watched again and observed his unbelievable uncomplicated style of gourmet cuisine. Oh, and the recipes were great - basically fresh and healthy ingredients with a dash of this and dash of that - that�s it. I keep hearing that he is known, as the �naked chef �News Flash� sexy chef would be a more appropriate term. He has amazing energy and charisma. My only concern now is - WHEN WILL THE NEXT DVD BE RELEASED!!!!!

I first noticed Jamie Oliver after hearing the catchy theme song - by Leigh Haggerwood - that begins the 'Oliver's Twist' rollercoaster ride. This DVD contains the best episodes from the first series, full of Jamies enthusiasm and British charm. The recipes are mouth watering, and with all the vibrant colours and London life, it's a joy to watch from beginning to end. My particular favourite is the episode where his band Scarlet Division perform the theme song out on the street and Jamie gives it some on his drum kit. I think everyone will enjoy this DVD!
