There is no doubt that Jamie Oliver has captured the heart of the nation with his passion for simple, delicious, home-cooked food. His talent is huge, his style relaxed and his fans just want more. This book is filled with fresh ingredients, and his 'pukka' recipes and boundless enthusiasm.
That cheeky Jamie Oliver apparently wanted to call this new book The Second Coming but his publishers wouldn't let him. Is the success going to his head? Why shouldn't it? Only twenty-four years old he has worked with the best in the business, has two books, and two television series to his name and is garnering the kind of praise people often wait a lifetime for. This new book has all the brio and enthusiasm of the first - 'maximum flavour and minimum effort' is the battlecry in the war on ready-made meals and boredom in the kitchen. His genuine love of home-cooked food chimes well with the mood of the times and he specializes in reworkings of old favourites - who can forget his take on the good old bacon buttie from his first outing.

What the papers say:
A second book of recipes from surely the best-known chef [except for Delia] in Britain who provides a second helping of recipes for simple, delicious home-cooked food.
