The Naked Chef
Naked--It's not him, it's the food! Jamie Oliver, a.k.a. the Naked Chef, is England's #1 bestselling food sensation, a charismatic, streetwise culinary wonder boy whose personality is as fresh and unpretentious as his cooking. In this extraordinary cookbook, Jamie takes all of the trade secrets he has accumulated since he started cooking at age eight and distills them into a refreshingly simple style that really works for people who are passionate about food, but dont always have a lot of time, money, or space. Jamie has applied his strip it bare then make it work principle to all his meals--from salads to roasts, desserts to pastas--and has created a foolproof repertoire of simple, feisty, and delicious recipes that combine bold flavours with fresh ingredients. With more than 120 fuss-free recipes, The Naked Chef, a sumptuous feast for the eyes as well as the stomach, is modern cooking at its best.

Because food is often better naked, though not necessarily the chef.

Jamie Oliver's first cookbook. Most of these recipes are a little complicated but all of the ones I've tried have been delicious. These come from a time when he was all about the food and not so much about causes.
