More About the Author

Jamie Oliver started cooking at his parents' pub, the Cricketers, in Clavering, Essex, at the age of eight, and has gone on to work with some of the world's top chefs. He founded Fifteen restaurant in London and the associated charity, Fifteen Foundation, which continues to train disadvantaged young people to become chefs. There are now three other Fifteen restaurants in the world: Cornwall, Amsterdam and Melbourne. Jamie has also launched a chain of high street restaurants in the UK called Jamie's Italian. In 2005 Jamie led a campaign to improve the quality of school dinners in the UK and, through the Feed Me Better movement, caused the government to substantially change its policy towards school food. Jamie continues to write for publications in the UK and around the world, including his own magazine, Jamie Magazine. He lives in London and Essex with his wife, Jools, and their daughters, Poppy, Daisy and Petal.

I highly recommend anything Jamie has ever written.
Sarah Frost
It also has frozen ends and bits of veggies, chicken bones and other bits (like tomato paste...who uses a whole can at once...not me) to use for broths and sauces.

I've made a few so far and it really does help save money.

I have been a fan of Jamie's cookbooks since his first (The Naked Chef). His recipes and advice are down-to-earth and presented in a fun, friendly way.
This book is no different. Jamie gives us common-sense answers to everyday issues. "What do I need in stock?" "How can I use _______?" I fill in the blank with things like eggplants, zucchini (courgettes), chilies...you name it. "How can I avoid wasting food?" That's a big one with me. With the best intentions I plan menus and cook for the week. Somehow I always end up throwing away perfectly good food or not-so-well-prepared food. This book answers the questions and offers solid advice.
My freezer is now full of properly portioned (for me) cheese, fruit and meat. It also has frozen ends and bits of veggies, chicken bones and other bits (like tomato paste...who uses a whole can at once...not me) to use for broths and sauces.
Jamie uses everyday terms, not culinary la-dee-dah, condescending chef-speak.
This is a good read with good recipes.

I love picking up this book when I'm out of ideas. The only thing is it is all in metric and that's hard for us in the States.

I've always loved Jamie Oliver recipes, and own 5 other cookbooks of his, but, as with most cook books, not much consideration was ever given to cost of ingredients. Until this one. I've made a few so far and it really does help save money. You'll find recipes using cheaper cuts of meat, canned and frozen produce, dry spices, etc, and all to GREAT effect. I applaud a chef who decides to use frozen spinach in a recipe and maximizes the overall flavor. I'm really excited to continue on through this book!

The book goal is to help us spend our food money more wisely and waste less.

This book resembles with Jamie’s other cookbooks: the ingredients can be found in all well supplied supermarkets, a lot of sauces, herbs and spices are used flavor the dishes, the directions are simple and easy to follow.

There are a lot of useful tips on how to shop smart and what to do with your leftovers.

Until now I cooked several dishes (Squash&spinach pasta rotolo, JFC (Jamie’s fried chicken), Mothership roast salmon and : Salmon topped jacked spuds) following Jamie’s recipes. The directions were clear and it was easy to cook following them.
The end result where delicious.

In conclusion: I like this book a lot because it saves time and money (you will learn how to use the leftovers from one meal to create more delicious meals). I would recommend this book to my friends.
