About the Author
Jamie Oliver grew up in his parents' country pub, the Cricketers in Clavering, where he started cooking at the age of eight, before studying at London's Westminster Catering College. He then went on to work with some of the top chefs in England--namely Antonio Carluccio at the Neal Street Restaurant and Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers at the River Cafe. The author of such popular titles as The Naked Chef, Jamie's Kitchen, and Jamie's Italy, among others, he has written for the Saturday Times, served as Food Editor at GQ and Marie Claire magazines, and hosted the popular television show The Naked Chef. Oliver's recent television show, Food Revolution, has aired on ABC for two seasons. He is thirty-seven and lives in London with his wife Jools and their children, Poppy, Daisy, Petal, and Buddy Bear.

I hate Brussels sprouts, at over 50 years old I have been avoiding them all of my life. I've fed them to the dog, plant pots, pockets, my sister's plate plus any number of unmentionable places. That was until Jamie devised a new way to cook them (page 314) I just love them! Jamie, you are a genius.
I dare you all to try Jamie's recipes, just in case you were wrong.........
At 416 pages, "Great Britain" meticulously chronicles Oliver's search through Britain for the best recipes and most profound inspiration. The gorgeous photos showcase not just the food, but also the people and scenery of the country. Using a graphic, scrapbook-like style, Oliver makes his country look beautiful, inviting and rich in culinary tradition.
Each recipe begins with a heartfelt introduction and contains easy-to-follow instructions (although multi-coloured fonts sometimes make the text hard to read). Traditional chapters include classics like steak & kidney pie and cornish pasties; others explore international influences. Oliver even writes a chapter called "Afternoon Tea," which features sour cranberry bakewell and Nan's St. Clement's Cake.
A thoroughly enjoyable read about Jamie Oliver's adventures in Britain and the country's culture.
