According to Jamie in his introduction, “The title The Naked Chef sums up the idea: it’s basically stripping food back to the bare essentials. It’s me cooking at home, sociable, simple food with my friends, stuff you can put in the middle of the table on real occasions. Or I’m in the markets, asking questions a lot of people feel they can’t ask: it’s reality, and I want it to be fun.”
In The Naked Chef, Oliver takes some exciting restaurant recipes and strips them down to the basics. He then adapted them, using what he had in his own home (limited cooking space), cupboard, pantry, refrigerator, or garden. The result is 120 foolproof, fuss-free recipes, all of them simple delicious, and special. Skate Wings with Prosciutto, Radicchio Capers and Lemon, My perfect Roast Chicken—this is a straightforward collection of recipes with bold flavors and minimal fuss anyone can make anytime. As with all of his books, there are great photographs of finished dishes and just enough of Jamie doing his stuff in and out of the kitchen.
Jamie says, “The aim of this book is to inspire you to get into the kitchen fired with enthusiasm and confidence.” We’re with you all the way Jamie!
