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.

I loved Oliver's previous book, "Cook With Jamie", and so I rushed to buy this one, expecting more of the same. I was disappointed, though, to find that much of the book is devoted to lessons in gardening and pages of (admittedly, beautiful) vegetables in and out of the garden. I have gardened for years, and none of the gardening information is new or useful to me, and I resent having paid for it. I guess I should have previewed the book, but in my enthusiasm I felt I knew what I would be getting.

That said, the recipes are arranged according to the seasons of the year and emphasize using produce in season, which is something most of us can improve upon in our kitchens. And the recipes are good--but somehow, having to wade through all that gardening has made me less enthusiastic about searching them out.

Jamie uses the profits from his books to support his projects of teaching unemployed kids to be chefs, and I love his enthusiasm for helping others. Still, I think I would rather have bought some other of his books than this one.

It is my first Jamie Oliver book. And I love it. It goes with the philosophy of doing from scratch and with was earth gives us. He gives tips for growing that seem simple. So much, that this book inspired me to do a small garden next year, for the first time!

This book and TV series has made me fall in love with Jamie Oliver all over again. The book has some great tips about gardening and fantastic recipes. This is the type of cooking I like to do, all natural, homemade and fresh. The pictures of the food in the book do not do it justice. There were a few I skipped over, however when I saw them made on the TV show I wanted to try and cook them. The broccoli, cauliflower cannelloni is amazing, it takes some work but the flavour is unreal and is a perfect dish for a special night. I would highly recommend this book.

This is by far one of my favourite cook books. I love the illustrations, the tips and the layout, which follows the growing seasons. The UK gets a slightly longer growing season that we do here, but I love how this book relates to my own vegetable gardening and brings me closer to understanding the seasons of our local produce. These recipes are excellent, simple, succulent and so adaptable. And if you can catch the complementary show "Jamie at Home" - it brings the book to life and inspires even further.

I ordered this book a long time ago because I love Jamie, I loved is TV shows, and I loved the overall design of the book!
I consider him as my main cooking teacher, as I learned how to play with flavours and ingredients while watching him on the food network. Unfortunately, the main skill I developed while watching him was to trust my intuition and inspiration of the moment, so I have hardly been able to follow a recipe in my life (exception for baked goods), including his recipes! Beyond the recipes, this book contains informations about seasonal foods, gardening and other info. I still recommend the book, even if I don't use it as intended, as Jamie is such an inspiring person.

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 adore this book. It's beautiful. The recipes are insanely amazing. The instructions are clear and Jamie is his usual self: lovely and funny.

The recipes range from easy enough/rather quick (the asparagus soup, for example) to easy enough/very long, but they're all spectacular. The gardening tips got me into growing my own tomatoes also.
