4.0 out of 5 stars Jamie's most useful book March 6 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Obviously, this is the book tie-in with the Jamie at Home series seen in the UK on Channel 4 and on the Food Network in North America. And for a tie-in, it's actually pretty good.

It's certainly a much better read than his previous Cook with Jamie, mainly because with this one he's made a better attempt at identifying his audience. Jamie, it's obvious, is enthusiastic about his cooking, and he expects his readers to have the same enthusiasm (and therefore the same knowledge) that he does. This is something that was missing from his previous effort.

The book is arranged in a seasonal theme, with recipes for spring, summer, fall and winter. This is good, because it encourages the type of varietal eating that keeps a diet from getting monotonous.

Where the book differs from his previous efforts is the way he talks about his garden. Most of the ingredients he uses are grown from there, with the main exception of poultry and game meats. (The poultry and eggs chapters have an especial interest, given his current project dealing with the exposure of battery hens.)

The recipes themselves are clear and well written, to the point where a high-schooler would feel brave enough about attempting some of them.

About the only thing missing is a chapter on herbs and spices. Oliver uses so many in his dishes you'd think he'd devote at least one page to their cultivation, but he doesn't. Still, don't let that spoil what's probably Oliver's most accessible cookbook to date.

This is an excellent recipe collection. Even though Jamie doesn't write this stuff, whoever his ghostwriter is writes enough like Jamie to make you think he wrote it. Recipes are awesome and instead of the forno oven (which is under construction) I use a Big Green Egg - so it still rocks.........

3.0 out of 5 stars Why do cookbooks always have terrible bindings Oct. 19 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I did not find this cookbook very useful. I am a fan of Oliver's but like most European cookbooks it requires access to strange local ingredients and knowledge of esoteric medieval measures. I suppose if you live in the same village as Oliver this book might be practical. Otherwise, just leave it out on your coffee table for your friends to flip through while you make something tasty from the Five Roses Flour cookbook.

I was rather hoping it would look more like the book used in the show. However the recipes are all there and it was fun to read.

As always, Jamie presents his recipes in an entertaining and educational way. It's a entertaining read even if you don't cook.

I love the format of this book organized by the season and garden produce as it comes available. Great tips for growing your own food as well.
