With a brand new book hitting the shelves and an exciting new TV show about to air, Jamie tells us, in his own words, what it’s all about.

“To say I’m excited about this new book, and the gorgeous TV show that goes with it, is an understatement.

Not only is every recipe both quick and easy, but every single one uses just five key ingredients, cleverly combined to deliver maximum flavour, with minimum fuss. The recipes are short, and I’ve included a visual ingredients key on every recipe in the book to take you from business on one side, to gastronomic delight on the other with those all-important beauty shots.

I know that quick and easy dishes are always going to go down well, but the most surprising thing for me when working on these recipes was that with only five ingredients to play with, the process became a total masterclass in restraint.

And I have to say, I think this is my most approachable book and TV show yet, not just for beginners, but for great cooks too. No matter how experienced we are, being reminded to stick to fewer ingredients and let simplicity and deliciousness sing out is a wonderful thing!

Jamie's new book
For me, this is about getting back to basics and empowering everyone to enjoy cooking from scratch, whatever the occasion. I’ve tried to cover all the bases: fabulous ways with proteins; bigging up brilliant veg; making salads exciting; creating stress-free, tasty fish dishes; celebrating humble pasta; and helping you kick your rice and noodle game into action.

Plus, there’s a bonus bumper chapter of delightful sweet treats, easy puds and simple biscuits you can enjoy with a good cup of tea. And – with the exception of the sweet treats chapter – 70% of the recipes are healthy, so you really can cook from it any day of the week. All you need is a short pantry list of – you guessed it – five staple ingredients, and you’ll be away.

So guys, happy cooking, and please share your finished dishes using #QUICKANDEASYFOOD”
