Britain's most exciting young chef, Jamie Oliver combines bold flavours and fresh ingredients within simple recipes. He is at the cutting edge of modern life and modern British cooking. The Naked Chef has something for everyone - from those who want great food but want to keep it simple, to those who work for a living and don't have time to spend all evening cooking. It is about giving people confidence and getting them to feel at ease in the kitchen, even if they have never tried cooking before! When I first moved to London I rented a tiny flat in Hampstead, with a kitchen the size of a cupboard. After that I moved to a Hammersmith basement flat which wasn't much better, so I knew only too well the restrictions of a small kitchen with only basic cooking equipment. I had been cooking good food in a restaurant for some time, but found it difficult to re-create many of the recipes at home for lack of time, space, equipment or, sometimes, the availability to the average shopper of good-quality produce at reasonable prices. So, in an effort to re-create some exciting restaurant recipes in a limited kitchen, I found myself stripping down those recipes to something quite basic. I then adapted them, using what I did have in the cupboard, larder, fridge or garden. Using this principle I have built up a foolproof repertoire of simple, delicious and feisty recipes. At the same time I have tried to avoid culinary jargon and any complicated, time-consuming process that isn't justified by the end result. About the Author Jamie Oliver started cooking at his parent's pub, The Cricketers, in Clavering, Essex, at the age of eight and has since worked with some of the world's top chefs. He is now running Fifteen - one of the best restaurants in London and the subject of the television series Jamie's Kitchen Jamie has written for The Times, as well as for GQ and Marie Claire magazines. He currently writes for Delicious magazine in the UK and Australia. He also started, and continues to be involved with the Fifteen Foundation, which provides training and mentoring for disadvantaged young people - allowing them to follow their dreams and become chefs.
