Jamie Oliver Signs New Deal With Channel 4

News Image
Channel 4 has teamed up with Jamie Oliver for a new three-year deal that will see the chef return with exclusive programmes for the broadcaster.

In the new series – Jamie's Quick & Easy Food – Jamie will use just five ingredients to create delicious meals to inspire both cooks and non-cooks to try at home.

The 8x30' series, which coincides with a new cookbook to be published by Penguin, Jamie will cover meat, fish and veggie dishes, as well as salads and pastas, sweet treats and everything in between.

Jamie Oliver said: "Of course it's a pleasure to be working with Channel 4 for another three years. At the end of the day, they're family, and we both strive to do great work and get people thinking differently. I'm so excited about my brand new series. Creating and filming Quick & Easy Food has been a revelation for me. I can't tell you how excited I am to share it with you. It's beautiful, clear, fast-paced and just full of great ideas. Sometimes the simplest things are the best – I can't believe it's taken me 20 years to work out that just focusing on five ingredients, killer combinations and technique can give you some of the most exciting cooking ever."

Sarah Lazenby added: "With the public becoming more time-challenged every year, Jamie's Quick & Easy Food really couldn't come at a better time. The repertoire of recipes is amazing – this is a mouth-watering series that we know will take the stress out of mealtimes."

Jamie's Quick & Easy Food is commissioned by Sarah Lazenby, Commissioning Editor for Factual Entertainment. It will be executive produced by Zoe Collins and Katy Fryer. The Series Producer is Katie Millard and Director is Ed St Giles. The series is expected to air on Channel 4 later this year.
