The book will be released on 7 September and includes over 130 recipes that all feature just five key ingredients that ensure meals are quick and easy to prepare – perfect for busy parents who are hoping to cook quick and nutritious meals for their families. A synopsis for the book reveals it includes recipes such as Roast tikka chicken and Crazy simple fish pie, and reveals that each recipe will include a visual ingredient guide, a short and easy-to-follow method and nutritional information.

It's no wonder the celebrity chef is keen to focus on quick and effortless meals; Jamie has his hands full with the five children he shares with wife Jools, and no doubt wants to spend less time in the kitchen and more time relaxing with his brood including the newest addition to the family, baby River Rocket.

Jamie has also been outspoken about the importance of making good, healthy food accessible to the masses, and recently criticised the Conservative party over their plans to axe free school meals for infants in a bid to save £650million. The 42-year-old, whose school meals campaign led to nutritional guidelines being introduced into schools, said: "This move shows a complete lack of understanding of all the data that's been shared and puts our future generations at huge risk, as well as further undermining our teachers who benefit from well-fed kids. What are they going to snatch back next?"
