James May Oh Cook!: 60 easy recipes that any idiot can make

Join James May on his mission to prove that really anyone can cook, on his new Amazon Prime Video show ‘Oh Cook!’



‘This is not a fantasy recipe book for food fetishists, full of soft-focus pictures of improbable art food. This is more of a workshop manual; a how-to guide for beginners that will become smeared with gravy and ketchup stains through constant service in the kitchen.’ – James May

Oh Cook! is a foolproof cookbook packed with 60 easy to make recipes for even the most basic of home cooks. In this TV tie-in, James May seeks to unpack the mysteries of cooking, unearthing the secrets behind the perfect poached egg, smooth custard and how to impress your friends and family
with a Sunday roast. There are even recipes for his beloved Spam.

Filled with James’ handy hints and tips, you, too, will be able to host a curry night, fix a mean breakfast, build a Victoria sponge and master the barbecue.

He’s done the hard work, so you don’t have to.
