Rating: 3 out of 5.

Jamie Oliver visits five places in the world where people live the longest to find out what the recipe is for a healthy, happy life. Having sampled a country’s specialities and joshed about with various nonagenarians he returns to his kitchen to prepare his own version (and slip in a few health-conscious cooking tips as he does so).

So, inspired by what he eats in Costa Rica and Greece, he prepares squash dhal with egg and a steak dish with herb tabouleh and feta cheese. Jamie’s a lot calmer than he was in his Naked Chef days, but he’s no less enthusiastic about really good, easy-to-prepare, tasty food.
