Jamie Oliver: 5 Ingredients
You know you can’t resist a 5 ingredient cookbook.
Jamie Oliver’s latest, which has 2-page spreads for each recipe with beautiful photographs and lots of white space, is particularly irresistible:
Not all of the recipes are for full meals, but a surprising number of them are. Many of them, actually, are just simpler versions of recipes that you probably already make. I’m planning on doing a sort of competition—is it worth the effort to make my more difficult version, or is Jamie’s easier version just as good?
There’s also a chapter on desserts, featuring fruit-based treats like Pineapple Carpaccio and Mango Rice Pudding. And I have never in my life seen a recipe that made me think I could successfully work with phyllo dough, but the Honey Berry Phyllo Smash has done it.
