Jamie Oliver’s brand-new series filmed from his home and featuring recipes created for his family continues. Jamie’s challenged himself during lockdown to create some brand-new dishes that he hopes will become new family favourites. He makes problem-solving meals for every need, from quick and tasty dinners to useful staples to add to our regular repertoires, as well as easy but extra special family favourites and crowd pleasers – all taking inspiration from the average weekly shopping basket and using ingredients many of us already buy. With a glimpse into life at the Oliver household, Jamie: Keep Cooking Family Favourites inspires us all with easy ideas for simple, affordable, delicious meals. In this episode, Jamie pulls out all the stops with his totally bonkers sausage and mash pie. It’s not a pie with mash on the side, or even a pie with mash on the top… Jamie uses golden mashed potatoes instead of pastry to encase a beautiful leek, sausage and apple stew. The family will be fighting over the gorgeous crispy bits and the oozy middle… a great way to try your favourite ingredients in a different way. Jamie also gives Britain’s favourite takeaway, fish and chips, a home makeover that involves no deep-frying, making it both safer and healthier for the family. With help from his son, Buddy, Jamie encases the fish in golden breadcrumbs that are shot through with smoky bacon, before serving it with smoked paprika potato wedges, mashed-up green veg and a light minty sauce… delicious!
