Jamie’s Italian set menus feature dishes from Jamie’s new 5 Ingredients – Quick & Easy Food cookbook
This summer, diners at Jamie’s Italian restaurants* can sample some of the delicious recipes from his latest book5 Ingredients – Quick & Easy Food. Each dish is based on just five key ingredients to create simple yet nutritious, flavour-filled food. Jamie’s Italian’s Quick & Easy set menu features five starters and five mains, with different options for both lunch and dinner from 24 August.
Starters from the lunch menu include Creamy Welsh mussels delicately poached in cream and cider, and Pappa al pomodoro pepper and tomato soup. Mains include Lemony courgette linguine, Carrot & grain salad or Sizzling steak & fries. The lunch menu is priced from £11.95.
At dinnertime, diners can enjoy Crispy squid & smashed avo dip, while mains include a Golden herb-crusted pork escalope, Harissa squash salad and Sizzling sirloin with fries. The set dinner menu is priced £15.95. See the full lunch and dinner menus here.
The recipes for these dishes and more are in Jamie Oliver’s latest cookbook 5 Ingredients – Quick & Easy Food. The book features over 130 recipes for tasty, everyday food created using just five ingredients. Chapters focus on hero foods like chicken, fish, salads, pasta, and sweet things. The emphasis is on quality, rather than quantity of ingredients, to deliver sumptuous flavours with minimum fuss.
“The inspiration for 5 Ingredients – Quick & Easy Food was a desire to create simple, comforting food that was full of flavour, but not masses of ingredients. It’s all about making a few quality ingredients shine. That’s why the recipes are perfect for Jamie’s Italian restaurants, as the food we serve is based on carefully sourced ingredients, cooked simply to create great tasting dishes. It makes perfect sense to create the new set menus using some of our favourite recipes from the book”, says Ed Loftus, Director of Food Development at the Jamie Oliver Group.
The Jamie Oliver Cookery School in Westfield is also running a Quick & Easy cookery lesson to teach students how to cook five family favourites from the book. During the one-day lesson participants learn how to cook Meltin’ Mustardy Beef, Crispy Garlicky Chicken, Quick Asian Fishcakes, Potato & Artichoke Al Forno and Cherry Chocolate Mousse, as well as picking up tips on essential kitchen skills. The first class runs on 6 October, priced £150. For more information see jamieolivercookeryschool.com.
A Channel 4 show, Jamie’s Quick & Easy Food, will air from 21 August to accompany the book. Over the eight half hour episodes Jamie will show just how simple it is to create delicious food from just a few ingredients, whether you’re an expert cook or absolute beginner.
