Jamie Oliver - The Naked Chef | DVD | (06/11/2000)
from £9.75 | Saving you £4.65 (29.10%) | RRP
Unless you've had your head in a plate of pie and mash for the last few years you'll know that The Naked Chef is the UK's youngest culinary talent, Jamie Oliver, and that the "naked" refers to his style of cooking--fresh, simple, stripped back to basics--not his dress sense. The tone is set for the series from the very first episode with roast leg of lamb flavoured with garlic, rosemary, and pancetta and baked fresh fruits (figs, peaches, cherries) with mascarpone and vanilla sugar. It's all ever so slightly and deliciously left of a very classic centre. His basic recipe for homemade pasta is so undauntingly straightforward, it almost certainly did for pasta-makers what Delia did for coriander when she first used it. If his young nieces can handle ravioli with broad bean, mint and fresh ricotta or his mouth-watering variation with potato, watercress and orgonzola, then we all can. Equally simple but inspiring are his fish dishes: baked salmon fillets with French beans, roasted cherry tomatoes, olives, anchovies and a basil aioli; whole steamed sea bass slashed and stuffed with fresh herbs, red peppers and onions; or his Asian-inspired herb-infused broth over steamed king prawns, scallops and clams with sliced ginger root, garlic and chilies. It remains to be seen whether Jamie Oliver turns out to be the Delia Smith for the lad and ladette generation, but British supermarkets seem infinitely better since he's had his way with purple basil, fennel and baby new potatoes on national television. --Tricia Tuttle

Katy Perry: Part Of Me | DVD | (05/11/2012)
from £3.99 | Saving you £9.01 (56.30%) | RRP
More of a music documentary than a concert video, Katy Perry: Part of Me chronicles Perry's year-long California Dreams World Tour in 2011 with an abundance of personal interviews, film of Perry interacting with her fans, and concert footage from California and around the globe. Absolutely bursting with energy, Perry's a fascinating singer, songwriter, and performer who's faced a fair amount of adversity in her career, and whose upbringing was very different than that of most pop stars. This film plays at times almost like a video diary. Perry philosophises about everything from growing up in a strictly Pentecostal Christian family to her fairy-tale outlook on life, costuming choices, how her own experiences and emotions influence her lyrics and music, her drive to remain true to herself, and the difficulty of sustaining a long-distance marriage with actor Russell Brand. There's also plenty of footage with Perry's costumers, makeup artists, various assistants, and friends, including actress Shannon Woodward. But some of the most interesting interviews are those with her sister Angela Hudson, who travels with the show, and her mother and father regarding their commitment to accepting and supporting Perry and her career despite potential conflicts with their religious views. One discussion that's oddly omitted is any hint of why Perry changed her name. While the personal and backstage footage is heartfelt and quite intriguing, the film seemed somewhat lacking in actual concert footage, though viewers are treated to at least parts of "Firework," "California Gurls," "Part of Me," "Last Friday Night," and "Peacock." --Tami Horiuchi

Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure is a unique sociological TV experiment. Featuring Oz Clarke - renowned wine authority Francophile and former Wine Tasting Champion of the World - as he attempts to reveal the wonder of the world's most complex viniculture to James May - a beer drinker who admires the Renault 4 but can identify a wine only as being 'nice' or 'nasty'. The results are often ugly and embarrassing for Britain. This is what happens when two grown men spend a month together in a car arguing about who's going to drive and whether or not it is acceptable to eat with your fingers in the Chateau of a French aristocrat. French wine for many people is a subject shrouded in mystery and confusion and following Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure it remains so. Can you make your own wine in a bucket? Should you spit or swallow? And where does this tent pole go? In series 2 we rejoin the pair in California as they take a month-long trip around the revered Californian wineries. They begin in Santa Barbara county - home of Pinot Noir where Oz is a local hero and inspiration to winemakers. Travelling on they meet wine 'renegades' an eccentric millionaire bicker when James crashes the Monaco Recreational Vehicle and argue over the quality of wine - from the Inaccessible and over-priced to 'two-buck-Chuck' who knocks out bottles for only two dollars. Finally they arrive at the glamorous Napa Valley where they are dismayed to discover that they're staying in the car park. The pair argue about who will empty the RV's waste tank then sample Californian sparkling wine at the Taittinger estate. Next the Schramsberg estate where they have a heated debate about what bubbles taste like!

Meet Big and Little Edie Beale: mother and daughter, high-society dropouts, and reclusive cousins of Jackie Onassis. The two manage to thrive together amid the decay and disorder of their East Hampton, New York mansion, making for an eerily ramshackle echo of the American Camelot. An impossibly intimate portrait, this 1976 documentary by Albert and David Maysles, codirected by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer, quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen. This special edition also features the 2006 follow-up to the film, The Beales of Grey Gardens, constructed from hours of extra footage in the filmmakers' vaults.
