5 Ingredients - Quick & Easy Food 
Jamie's 5 Ingredients - Quick & Easy Food is the brand new cookbook from Jamie Oliver and ties in with his 8-part primetime TV series on Channel 4, Jamie's Quick and Easy Food.
This is Jamie’s clearest, simplest, most easy-to-use cookbook yet, empowering readers to see the value in incredible combinations of just five ingredients to create utterly delicious meals. Each recipe uses tricks and techniques to deliver amazing food and Jamie believes this book will get more people cooking than ever before.
Cooking doesn't have to be complicated - that's why Jamie's 5 Ingredients - Quick & Easy Food is sure to become your new best friend in the kitchen.
It's all about making the journey to good food, super-simple. Every recipe uses just five key ingredients, ensuring you can get a plate of food together fast, whether it's finished and on the table super-quickly, or after minimal hands-on prep, you've let the oven do the hard work for you. We're talking quality over quantity, a little diligence on the cooking front, and in return massive flavour.
Each recipe has been tried and tested (and tested again!) to ensure the book is packed with no-fuss, budget-friendly dishes that you can rustle up, any day of the week.
With over 130 recipes, and chapters on Chicken, Beef, Pork, Lamb, Fish, Eggs, Veg, Salads, Pasta, Rice & Noodles and Sweet Things, there's plenty of quick and easy recipe inspiration to choose from.
Think Roast tikka chicken - a whole bird rubbed with curry paste and roasted over golden potatoes and tender cauliflower, finished with fresh coriander. Or, Crazy simple fish pie - flaky smoked haddock, spring onions, spinach and melty Cheddar, all topped off with crisp, golden filo, and ready to tuck into in less than 30 minutes.
With every recipe you'll find a visual ingredient guide, serving size, timings, a short, easy-to-follow method, and quick-reference nutritional information.
This is Jamie's easiest-to-use book yet, and the perfect cookbook for busy people.
The TV series, Jamie's Quick and Easy Food: Monday 21st August - 2 October.
What Jamie says about the book:
'The experience of writing this book and making the TV show that accompanies it has really inspired me, and to be honest, humbles me because sometimes the simplest things in life are the best. I can’t believe it’s taken me 20 years to work that out. This is beautifully clear, easy cooking. Every single recipe celebrates the amazing combination of just five ingredients, and believe me, this book is a total workhorse – it will hold your hand in the kitchen and make your mouth water at the same time. All of the recipes have had the most incredible feedback from our team of rigorous testers, who are both cooks and non-cooks. I’ve got a good feeling about this one – I can’t wait to get it out there.'
