Is Jamie going frugal?

9780718158149Looking forward to these new cook books which we’ve got ordered.

Jamie Oliver’s new cookery book is ‘Save with Jamie’ We like the look of this one  as we’re all for being a cheapskate!

”Save with Jamie’ draws on knowledge and cooking skills to help you make better choices, showing you how to buy economically and efficiently, get the most out of your ingredients, save time and prevent food waste.’

Then there’s the healthy sounding ‘River Cottage fruit everyday’ by Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall. With 180 delicious recipes, it shows you how to enjoy a broader eating experience and make fruit easy, fun and irresistible. Recipes for seasonal fruit that grows in this country, and how to make the most of fruit from other parts of the world:  marinated lamb and fig kebabs; barbecued pork chops with peaches and sage; venison stew with damsons; and parsnip and apple cakes;  fresh and zingy salads as well as gorgeous cakes, tarts, pies, crumbles and puddings.

And this one will be our favourite: Michel Roux Jnr ‘The French Kitchen’. It’s got 200 recipes so if you feel inspired by watching Masterchef, this is the one for you


‘With its delicious dishes and exquisite ingredients as diverse as the regions from which they come, heritage cooking and family values from provincial France have stood the test of time. In this book Michel Roux Jr explores the heritage of his native French cuisine: from the rustic to the haute.’
