This week on Jamie's Quick & Easy Food, Jamie's cooking up his snappy sesame seared tuna, a mouth-watering meal in minutes, and messy meatball buns, feel-good family food that's fast and loaded with flavor. Followed by his irresistibly gooey chocolate rye cookies, home baking at breakneck speed. Then, to top it all off, hearty chicken pot pie, a comforting classic with a quick and easy hack for the perfect crispy crust.
English chef, author and restaurateur Jamie Oliver began cooking at his parents' pub, The Cricketers, in Clavering, Essex, at the age of eight. After leaving school he began a career as a chef that took him to The River Cafe in London, where he was famously spotted by a television production company. His television and publishing career began in 1999 with The Naked Chef series. His latest project, JAMIE'S QUICK ... EASY FOOD, offers the ultimate set of go-to recipes that are quick to prepare and easy to remember - perfect for those who love their grub, but don't have the time or energy for complicated cooking. Using all his culinary know-how, Jamie has developed a collection of creative and tasty dishes using just five ingredients, plus a few basics from your cupboards: olive oil, extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, sea salt and black pepper. His recipes - which include egg fried rice, Thai-style crispy sea bass, sticky kickin' wings, and more - are perfect for busy days and made with the minimum number of elements to deliver maximum flavor.
