Jamie's Ministry of Food: Anyone can Learn to Cook in 24hrs by Jamie Oliver

Sixty years ago food was in short supply and malnutrition rates were high. The Ministry of Food was set up to teach the public how to make the best use of the food available to them. Fast forward to the present day, where we have unlimited choices and plenty of food, yet we're living in a world of junk food, additives and preservatives. Our war is now against obesity, as most people have little or no idea about how to cook and what makes a balanced diet. We need to learn from the past. We need to look back at the way our grandmothers and great-grandmothers cooked – wholesome, tasty food that was simple and quick to prepare. If you're a complete beginner in the kitchen, Jamie's promise to you is that you'll be making some great dinners within hours of reading his book. A little knowledge and a few basic tools can go a long way, and this book is your first step . . .

Great book for beginners!! I would give this to a graduating highschool/college student as it is perfect for people who have never really had to cook for themselves! It's also great for those people looking at getting back to cooking nutious, affordable, good food.

I also have Jamie's America which is also fun to read! I love reading what Brits think of Americans! :0) For those of you who live in the UK it's on sale at Sainsbury's for 5.99!!

The title of the book has been changed in the US to Jamie's Food Reveloution as the story (above) of the title Ministry of Food doesn't apply to Americans.
I love cook books!!!
