Jamie Oliver offers ‘Jamie At Home’
By: By J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Editor
Jamie Oliver is offering a lush new view of his pared-down cooking.
In his latest television series, which began airing Saturday on Food Network, Oliver offers quick and easy recipes inspired by produce grown in his garden.
Each 30-minute episode focuses on a new ingredient, with Oliver demonstrating uses of it. The premiere features pumpkin and squash, roasted for salad, puréed for soup and baked into cupcakes.
It’s a simple concept, but Oliver executes it well. And in his trademark style, he spends just enough time with each dish to get you hungry, without lingering over unnecessary details or boring viewers with idle stove chatter.
The show is shot in various locations throughout Oliver’s gorgeous country home in Essex, England. It is rustic, beautiful and homey. It makes you want to eat whatever is made there.
