Book Description

Oct. 2 2012
Having grown up in his parents' gastropub, Jamie Oliver has always had a special place in his heart for British cooking. And in recent years there's been an exciting revolution in the British food world in general. English chefs, producers, and artisans are retracing old recipes, rediscovering quality ingredients, and focusing on simplicity and quality. Jamie celebrates the best of the old and new (including classic British immigrant food) in his first cookbook focused on England.

Here are over 130 great, easy-to-prepare recipes, ranging from salads-Heavenly Salmon and Epic Roast Chicken; to puddings-Rhubarb and Rice Pudding and Citrus Cheesecake Pots; to Sunday lunch-Guinness Lamb Shanks and Roast Quail Skewers; and, of course, the crumbliest scones. America has already fallen for the new British gastropub cooking, with popular restaurants by chefs such as April Bloomfield of The Spotted Pig and the John Dory. Now Jamie shows how to make the same delicious food at home. This is definitely not your grandmother's mushy peas!

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget stodgy British food Dec 17 2012
By Denise
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Many of my friends in Canada view British food as stodgy tasteless stuff served by their grandparents and force fed to them as children - meet the new world, Jamie is amazing.
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.........

5.0 out of 5 stars Jamie does it again Jan. 19 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having watched the series on TV everything looked delicious and fairly easy to prepare. Having obtained the book the recipes really are straightforward and his enthusiasm comes through in the book. If you only ever buy one more cookbook then this should be it.
