    'One Sizzling Culinary Commodty!'

    Jamie quite simply ROCKS! He is so awesome. All that talent in one little man (Ha!) What a huge talent! Not only does he own 15 restaurants he actually takes the time to share his vast amounts of knowledge in the culinary world. Part cook, part teacher, this book is amazing! I have learned so much from this man, that I cannot praise him loud enough! I suppose all that is left to say is simply, 'Thank You!' This is one cookbook you don't want to overlook! Get your copy today!

    Absolutly Necessary To Have

    Jamie Oliver, celebrity chef and food revolutionary, provides the quintessential cook book of modern times. Half recipie half how to, this book should be the go to book in every kitchen library in America. Jamie Oliver sets out to teach cook in the most basic forms and techniques. This cook book is acessable to everyone without being simplistic or childish.
    Not only does this book provide a wide array of recipies it also teaches the basics of cooking. How to identify and pair flavors and textures and aromos. The main idea behind "Cook With Jamie" is to become a sort of shoot-from-the-hip type of cook. Not to rely heavily on recipes but to be able to create your own dishes no matter how simple or complex. This may be the single most important reason to have this book in your home.
    The epicurean lessons aside this book also includes incredibly simple, incredibly delicious recipies that run the gammut. The book is divided into sections as salads, pastas, meat, fish, poultry, dessert and a few others. The recipes reflect the lessons in each section.
    This is a hefty well bound cook book. If there is one cook book to get for a house warming, wedding gift or something for your own kitchen, this is the book to get above all others.

    Great Cookbook! Beautiful Photos & Good Info even for experienced cooks

    Nice selection of menus items and definitely gives you very good information on basics that sometimes might need refreshing. Nice variations on traditional recipes...plus new ideas, too.
