I was not sure how much I will like this new DVD series by Jamie Oliver - but I ended up loving it. The fact I like most is that he focuses on the whole process of cooking. This means starting with growing fresh vegetables in the garden and using this high-quality ingredients for rather quick and delicious dishes. A big success is the selfmade tomato ketchup - we already gave this recipe a try at home, and it tasted awesome.
From the producer: Jamie Oliver goes back to his roots for a mouth-watering new series filmed at his Essex home. The chef has spent the last five years tackling school dinners and youth unemployment, so it's a treat to have him back cooking great recipes using ingredients straight from his own garden. From perfect potatoes to superb strawberries, and from tasty tomatoes to fresh pizza toppings, the 12-part series is a straightforward guide to getting the best from mother nature.
With the help of gardener Brian, Jamie has transformed the garden of his Essex house, and discovered a passion for growing his own produce. Now he wants to show just how easy it is to cultivate amazing fruit and vegetables at home. Even if you only have a balcony or back yard, Jamie shows how to grow fantastic veg and fruit and turn it into simple, tasty and delicious food. Packed with dozens of new step-by-step recipes, Jamie at Home is enough to get any cook's green fingers itching.
There are already two volumes of this fine production available.
