Product Description

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.

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.........

Format: Hardcover
The aftermath of Olympic-inspired "British Fever" seems the perfect time for Jamie Oliver to have released his newest cookbook, "Jamie Oliver's Great Britain." Although the country has an unappealing culinary reputation featuring tough meat and grey-ish vegetables, this book dispels stereotypes and indeed contains some of the most mouth-watering recipes in all of Oliver's impressive collection.

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.

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.

Not to mention the recipes are so simple and easy to follow and make, the photos are full of Old World charm which is so calming in this busy world we live in today. I also love the stories that come with some of the recipes. Some of the stories are heart warming. Submerging myself in the wonderful recipes, charming photos and heart warming stories, I am re-living the beautiful memories of my university time in London, England 30 years ago as a foreign student. What a treat to my mind and stomach because I have already tried some of the recipes.

Jamie's books are like having a continuous original conversation with a loving chef. The old seen with new eyes, the classical being refreshed, the complicated made accessible and barriers are lifted for conviviality between the dishes of so many countries and...people! In his modern quest for reconquering real food, real cooking habits he leaves us with a feeling that our heads and our hearts have been expanded.

A bit thin as to new stuff. I can cook a breakfast. Do not need Jamie to show me how to fry bacon. Some interesting stuff. I will lend it to friends, but not recommend any of them to buy it.
