What I liked:

I have a lot of Jamie Oliver recipe books, and each one so far has impressed me. This one is the same. I liked the fact Jamie offers up alternatives. It means you can swap out ingredients without having to think of how to do so. Great for cooks who are not that confident in the kitchen. The recipes have a quick description of the main supporting ingredients, much like a restaurant menu. This helped me decide which ones I liked the most.

What I made:

In preparation for next year’s International Scone Week, I made the Courgette & Feta Scones and they were delicious! I also made the Greens Mac ‘N’ Cheese which was worth the effort. The sauce took a lot longer to thicken than the recipe book says. We ended up getting three meals from the recipe which I shall share with you next month.

  1. Jamie Oliver has often been in the news. Despite all this publicity I’ve never seen or used any of his cookbooks, or for that matter eaten in one of his restaurants. Maybe I should look at some of them next time I go to the library.
