This is a great cookbook for people who want to spend a minimal amount of time in the kitchen. While some of the ingredients are not extremely common, I've managed to find most of them at different grocery stores in my area. The title is a bit misleading though because certain things like salt, pepper, and olive oil are not listed as one of the five ingredients even if they are used in a recipe.

five ingredients, but not five regular ingredients. Nothing in this book I would cook.

A rich compendium of recipes that are not.... necessarily familiar.
example: Thai red chicken soup, meltin mustardy beef, fish pie, chicken pot pie with puff past;

Lovely format .. recipe on the left, classy photo full size on right page.
If you want to try something new in cooking, you'll find a handful or more of recipes you'll try.
My difficulty with these recipes is the price to buy "fresh" herbs for a menu item; and, I can't help but wonder why the dried herb equivalents are included as an alternative ingredient.

I like Jamie Oliver's creativity ... but I'll still need to hunt to find his approach to more typical recipes because I'm not much of a more exotic cook. (yes, still working on getting the basics).
