Jamie at Home - New Jamie Oliver show

Recommended Posts

Elie, do you have the UK edition of Cook with Jamie?

The squid-cutting technique with the two knives made me cringe a little, too, but I liked the results. I was thinking of something wooden, like a ruler, to use inside the squid instead, but the shape of the knife does fit perfectly.

Those leeks, I was just considering adding to my Easter menu.

Yes, I have the UK edition. I buy the books as soon as they come out on Amazon.uk. It has no exotic or strictly-UK ingredients in there, that is why I am wondering what could Helen mean by her comment.

I thought the same thing about using a wooden or plastic thing instead of the knife for the squid because like you said the result is even and fast. It has to be shaped like a knife, so maybe a thick piece of cardoard that can be cut to shape? Or just carve and taper the ruler a bit.

Foodman, sorry, I should have been clearer - where I live in Japan, a lof of "ordinary" fare is exotic - but Italian food is popular, so I can buy fresh white mozzarella, but not a chunk of hard cheese.

I'm really appreciating reading the resposes, though, and think that one of these DVDs/books will suit our needs.

I did notice that you live in Japan, but I guess I thought that many western ingredients would be much more available. So, you are limited by most "western" cookbooks then, not specifically the Jamie Oliver one that was refered to upthread? I'd hate to see you trying to cook from a Claudia Roden or Paula Wolfert book :smile:.

Oh man I am totally stealing the Asian-style fried game birds he did this weekend.  Duck legs that way would be awesome.

How does that spice shaker he uses work?  I've seen him put leafy things in there and everything comes out pounded to dust.

the "flavor shaker" has a heavy ceramic ball that fits inside the plastic housing. i saw one, but didn't buy it. that was before this show started airing. now i wish i had, if only in homage to jamie....a mortar and pestle will do the same thing, but i am so enjoying the episodes that i want to be "just like him"... :wub:

Finally got to the game birds show, another good one.

The poultry and pork (Jamie used sausage) gave me ideas. Taking advantage of an overcast Sunday I cooked a chicken, split in half, and some bone-in pork shoulder like his mixed roast, w/carrots and celery and strips of orange zest and rosemary and thyme and so forth. The pork fat did wonderful things for the chicken skin and flesh -- the whole thing was fabulous. Garlic mash rather than his polenta, though, by request. Among the best house-smelling-up dishes ever, orange, olive oil, meats, veg, herbs, all detectable.

I just checked amazon in the US and the new Jamie book is available for pre-order, to be available in Oct. 2008 (what a long time! - maybe they are converting words and phrases like "easy-peasy" to "simple" ;-)

Here is a link:

That's odd because it's in stock at Amazon.ca - wonder if it's just a misprint. My daughter grabbed me a copy from my local Cosco.

Canadians know what 'easy-peasy' means...we are so lost if we read that in the text :wacko:

BTW, I've seen his previous book, 'Cook with Jamie' at Borders sold in a package along with the flavor shaker. I would've picked it up but I already had a copy.

I bought the book package with the Flavor Shaker and recommend it highly - I find it way easier than a mortar and pestle (at least for some things). The baked sqaush recipe with coriander and chili flakes (which uses the shaker for the spice mixture) is one of the best things I've ever eaten.

Was that rotisseries from this weekend's episode one of the coolest things or what! I wonder of he really found it at an antique store or was he just romanticizing.

I was thinking he should've put finger quotes around everything he was saying when he was talking about it. Hmmm, yeah Jamie, you just happened to find this thing just yesterday and decided to try it on camera for the first time . . . :raz:

Cool contraption though.

My cynic in me agrees with you...on the other hand he did burn the hell of those onions.

Just caught up with the onion and the bbq eps... I love that beautiful keywound spit no matter its provenance. I agree that its finding was probably less romantic than Jamie's tongue-in-cheek flight of fancy might have suggested.

From the onion show the shallot/blue cheese salad was just right. Salads w/a blue cheese component are habitual in our house and I will be doing his variation with the fine fat shallots from my fave farmer's market vendor right quick here.

Apparently I've been under a rock.

I finally caught an episode of this show for the first time only a week ago.

The bean episode.

What a great show.

Will be recording this regularly now.

As far as I could tell, it either finished its run or maybe the episodes that FTV has are done. Why else would The Cooking Loft be running in its spot?

After checking Food Network’s website it looks like the show is moving to 7:30 AM starting October 4th. The shows listed are repeats. Maybe some of are friends in Canada or the UK can let us know if new episodes are being produced.

I can’t say that I cared for other show by Mr. Oliver, but this one is of the best (IMO) currently on television.

Man it's my favorite - in a LONG time.

He seems genuinely inspired/ motivated by his garden, and his wood stove, and the incredible meats and such to which he seems to have ready local access.

His enthusiasm is contagious, in that I now covet a working, productive kitchen garden (albeit on a smaller scale) - and a wood-fired outdoor brick oven. . . . and, of course, a full-time professional gardener from UC Davis.

There were 2 series in the UK - although they seem to have run more or less back-to back. Finished many months back and now crop up endlessly on the repeat channel (along with assorted Ramsey programmes)

An answer to a question sent to his website was answered by his "Enquiries Team" yesterday. There are no plans for another season at the moment (so it's just the 2), but they aren't ruling it out completely.

I certainly hope it does get picked up for a third series (it's been one of his best shows). His next TV series + book is Jamie's Ministry of Food (the link has a particularly unflattering picture of Jamie). I don't know if he's used up all of the recipes on his Jamie at Home book in the series. Has he?

His other shows that ran for more than one season are Oliver's Twist (two seasons with 26 episodes each), The Naked Chef (2 seasons), and Jamie's Kitchen (one in UK and one in Australia).

      I'm trying to make a Roasted Poblano and Black Bean Enchilada recipe and I don't know if the tomatillo cream sauce will be freezer-friendly.     Basically I process the following ingredients in a food processor to make the cream sauce.  I plan on freezing the sauce in ice-cube trays for individual servings.  The sauce will then be thawed and spread on a baking dish and also used to top the enchiladas and cook in a 400 degree oven.   Thanks!   INGREDIENTS:   -26 ounces canned tomatillos, drained -1 onion -1/2 cup cilantro leaves -1/3 cup vegetable broth -1/4 cup heavy cream -1 tbsp vegetable oil -3 garlic cloves -1 tbsp lime juice -1 tsp sugar -1 tsp salt

      A while ago, to learn the ins and outs of Horseradish, I began making my own mustard. I have managed some really really good varieties, (one with black mustard seeds, rice-wine vinegar, horseradish and Kabocha squash) and some really god awful ones too. I recall that my grandmother used to make her own ketchup too. it wasn't all that good.
      has anyone made their own condiments before?
      care to share experiences?

      The basic formula for these cakes was developed by the wife of a mayonnaise salesman in an effort to help him out. I did a bit of research, and have found many variations. Early variants generally involve using less cocoa, which I cannot recommend. Later variants involve using cold water instead of boiling, adding salt, and additional leaveners. I personally do not feel that any additional salt is needed, as mayonnaise and that famous, tangy brand of salad dressing (sometimes the label just says 'Dressing') both contain a fair amount of salt. If you are using homemade mayonnaise or a low sodium product, an eighth teaspoon of salt may boost the flavor a bit. And, of course, somewhere along the way fans who prefer a certain salad dressing over mayonnaise started using it to make this cake. Nowadays, the Hellman's website has a different formula -one with added eggs and baking powder. I have not tried this newer formulation.
       
      Some versions of this recipe specify sifted cake flour. This will result in a very light cake with virtually no structural integrity, due to the paucity of eggs in this recipe compared to a regular cake. Cupcakes made this way give beautifully light results. However, every time I try to make a traditional 8" double layer cake with cake flour, I experience collapse. I recommend AP flour or at least a mix of cake and pastry flour.
       
      I have never made this with a gluten-free flour replacer. This recipe does not have very much structural integrity and as such does not make a good candidate for a gluten-free cake.
       
      I have made this cake many times, the type of sandwich spread you choose will affect the outcome. Made with mayonnaise, the cake has a good chocolate flavor and moistness. Made with that famous, tangy, off-white salad dressing that gets used as a sandwich spread, the cake has a subtle bit of extra brightness to the flavor. If one chooses to use a vegan mayonnaise, the result is tasty but lacking a little in structure; I would bake this in a square pan and frost and serve from the pan.
       
      The cocoa you use will also affect the flavor.  For a classic, homey flavor use a supermarket brand of cocoa. To add a little sophistication, use better, artisan type cocoa and use chocolate extract instead of the vanilla extract.
       
      Supposedly, the traditional frosting for this cake should have a caramel flavor. Look for one where you actually caramelize some sugar first. Modern recipes for the icing seem like weak imitations to me; using brown sugar as the main flavor instead of true caramel.
       
      Chocolate Mayonnaise or Salad Dressing Cake
      makes enough for two 8" round pans, or a 9" square (about 7 cups of batter)
       
      2 ounces/56g unsweetened, non-alkalized cocoa
      1 cup/236g boiling water
      1 teaspoon/4g regular strength vanilla extract
      3/4 cup/162g mayonnaise, vegan mayonnaise, or salad dressing (the tangy, off-white, sandwich spread type dressing)
      10.5ounces/300g all-purpose flour
      7 ounces/200g sugar
      0.35ounce/10g baking soda
       
      Preheat your oven to 350°.
      Grease or spray two 8" round pans or an equivalent volume square or rectangle.
      Place the cocoa in a medium (4-5 cup) bowl. Add the hot water and stir with a fork to break up any clumps. Allow to cool down a little,  then add the vanilla extract and the mayonnaise or salad dressing spread. Beat well to eliminate lumps. In the bowl of an electric mixer or larger regular bowl if making by hand, sift in the flour and add the sugar and baking soda. Mix the dry ingredients to distribute evenly. Slowly beat in the cocoa mixture. Mix until the batter has an even color. Pour immediately into the pans. If making two 8" rounds, weigh them to ensure they contain equal amounts.
      Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until the center of the top springs back when touched lightly. (The toothpick test does NOT work well on this moist cake!) Allow the cake to cool a little and shrink from the sides of the pan before removing. Removal is easier while still a little warm.
      Good with or without frosting.
      Good beginner cake for kids to make.

      Prawn Balchao is a very famous Goan pickle that has a sweet, spicy and tangy flavor to it. 
      For the balchao paste you will need:
      > 8-10 kashmiri red chillies
      > 4-5 Byadagi red chillies
      > 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
      > 1/2 tsk turmeric powder 
      > 1 tsp peppercorn
      > 6 garlic cloves
      > 1/2 tsp cloves
      > 1 inch cinnamon stick
      > Vinegar 
      First you will need to marinate about 250 grams of prawns in some turmeric powder and salt. After 15 minutes deep fry them in oil till them become golden n crisp. Set them aside and add tsp vinegar to them and let it sit for 1 hour. Now, make a paste of all the ingredients mentioned under the balchao paste and make sure not to add any water. In the same pan used for fryin the prawns, add in some chopped garlic and ginger. Lightly fry them and immediately add one whole chopped onion. Next, add the balchao paste amd let it cook for 2-3 minutes. Add in the prawns and cook until the gravy thickens. Finally add 1 tsp sugar and salt according to your taste. Allow it to cool. This can be stored in a glass jar. Let this mature for 1-3 weeks before its use. Make sure never to use water at any stage. This can be enjoyed with a simple lentil curry and rice.
