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. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Craig
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.Published 24 months ago by Amazon Customer
As always, Jamie presents his recipes in an entertaining and educational way. It's a entertaining read even if you don't cook.Published on March 22 2013 by SAWarren
