Hello,

 

I was looking for a cookbook that I'm planning to give to a friend who wants to start cooking simple recipes at home. I came across this new book of Jamie Oliver http://www.bookworld...jamie/36861254/ and I'm wondering if anyone of you have read this? Is it good? I haven't read any books of Jamie Oliver to be honest so I really don't know if this one's worth buying or not. I have read good and not so good reviews about it, so I hope someone can help me here.

 

Thanks a lot!!  :smile:

this book uses metric measurements.  would that be an issue?

 

are you looking for a book to get someone with minimal kitchen skills back into the kitchen?
