Michael Joseph is absolutely delighted to announce a new cookbook from Jamie Oliver.  Jamie’s Quick & Easy 5-Ingredient Food will be publishing this autumn and will tie in with an 8-part prime time TV series on Channel 4 of the same name.

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.

See Jamie in action talking about his new book here.

Jamie gives us great recipes, with no fuss – they’re either super-fast to get on the table, or require just minimal preparation, leaving slow cooking to deliver big on flavour.

The book will contain over 130 brand new recipes and includes chapters on all the big-hitters – amazing chicken, beef, pork and lamb recipes, failsafe fish dishes, recipes that celebrate the versatility of eggs, veg and salads, exciting pasta, rice & noodles ideas, and, lots of insanely good biscuits, cookies and mouthwatering sweet treats. This book will be jam-packed with inspiration to get you excited about cooking.

Each recipe will include a visual ingredient guide as well as a short easy-to-follow method making this Jamie’s most user-friendly book to date.

Jamie says. “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!”

Louise Moore says: “We are so proud to publish Jamie and be supporting and collaborating with him on our 20th book with him. This is such a simple and brilliant concept and Jamie’s recipes here are total game changers.”
