Re: Welcome to the forums!

Hi Jamie,
I was wondering if i could be of any use to one of your campaigns or businesses at the moment. ive been a chef for over 20 years but im currently not working due to my recovery from a car accident. I've been off for over 6 months now and i dont know if i will be able to return to being a full time chef as i injured my back.i have worked at some top quality restaurants during my career and dont want to waste my knowledge. I still have the passion for food and would like to stay within the catering idustry in some way.

regards

steve durham

Re: Welcome to the forums!

Hi All!

Just joined today. I'm 56,married and live and work on the Isle of Skye. We moved here 3 years ago and I love it (even the vile weather!) We keep geese and hens. I love to cook.

I've been a fan of Jamie since the beginning. I love his enthusiasm and have never cooked one of his recipes and been disappointed. His campaigns are inspiring.

Cheers,
Skye

Re: Welcome to the forums!

My husband and I are total converts to Jamie's way of cooking. When I met my husband 10 years ago, all he could 'cook' was supernoodles. He's now a culinary genius thanks to Jamie's books - full of easy-to-follow recipes. We've bought other cookbooks and felt cheated because the recipes are complicated, hard to follow and time consuming and Jamie's never are. We particularly like 'Jamie's Dinners'. If you haven't got this one then get it because the section in it called '5 minute wonders' is fab - they actually do take 5 minutes and we use them mid-week ALL  THE TIME!
I especially like the chicken gougons with ginger, chilli and noodles. Why make your own recipes up when Jamie's are available?
Thank you Jamie. Take heart that you have inspired a generation and your legacy will live long after you have popped your clogs x

Hi Jaymie,

Just watched your programme and think what you're doing is brilliant and well over due. Why does our government only ever react when we're in crisis, instead of preventing it like you're trying to do.

I was really shocked that some people didn't even know how to boil water. Couldn't believe it was that bad out there. I was lucky my mum was a great cook and I learned from her. Not everyone has that luxury though I suppose.

Keep up the good work.

Dairy and Gluten free - new member

Hi Jamie

I have recently been diagnosed with a dairy allergy and am now being tested for coeliac disease so looks like I'll also have to stop gluten.  I didn't realise how difficult it was to try and work out what to eat for people who have this problem.  Cheese was my favourite food!  I now walk around the supermarket with a glazed look on my face, trying to find something I can eat.  I came on here to join to see if you had ever thought of bringing out a dairy/gluten free cookery book.  I love your books and I'm starving. 

Take care

Denise

Hi Denise,

I've just been through this and I didn't realise that gluten seems to be in everything even liqourice!!  A friend of mine has coeliacs disease and says there are very good websites where you can basically buy anything you want but in the gluten free version, even garlic bread!!

Good luck

Jo

Re: Welcome to the forums!

Hi Jamie,
Just bought you "Ministry of Food" book, it's fantastic! I've been cooking from scratch for about 10 years, after i realised i was killing my kids with junk. I am now training others to do the same, and your book will help me in my quest. We dont have TV so i haven't seen the program but i did see the school dinner one and that was great.

Thanks for caring
