Jamie Oliver is without doubt one of the most recognisable celebrity chefs in the UK today. With his cheeky, no nonsense manner, his passion for good food and his quirky catchphrases, he has become a firm favourite in many households!
The Sun Newspaper and The Sun Buzz Magazine have an exciting offer coming up for fans of Jamie and keen cooks alike. They are running a promotion between the 5th and the 11th of February, whereby everyday you can collect a token that is instantly redeemable in Tesco, which gives you a free cardboard sleeved DVD of two complete episodes of Jamie at Home. Token one is in Buzz magazine, the rest will be in the newspaper. There are six DVDs in all which gives you the entire twelve episodes of the Jamie at Home Series to enjoy.
I've been given a full set of the DVDs to review and a second set to giveaway on my blog (further details below!)
Jamie at Home is a beautifully filmed and inspirational series. It shows Jamie in his garden throughout the year, enthusing about his home grown produce. The wonderful array of fruit and vegetables, from Summer salads to Winter vegetables, are transformed into delicious, seasonal, no-nonsense recipes. There are hints and tips on the practicalities of gardening and he makes it look so appealing. He cooks indoors and out and produces some wonderful food... stews, soups, pot roasts, pizzas, preserves, pies and salads. My favourite recipe was a unique take on coleslaw using winter vegetables in a yogurt and mustard dressing. There is something for everyone in this entertaining series.
The DVDs are approximately 50 minutes long and cover the following subjects:
Furred Game and Pastry
Leeks and Winter Veg
Eggs and Lamb
Asparagus and Peas and Beans
Strawberries and Summer Brassica
Summer Salad and Rhubarb
I am a vegetarian, but even I found plenty of ideas and inspiration, and many of the recipes can be adapted. He makes an amazing bubble and squeak with sausages and caramelised onions...easy to make a veggie version! And his apple pie...well, simply delicious!
