UPDATE: A year later - Everything I cook from this book has made it on to my regular rotation. The Indian curries are divine (and use easy to find good quality curry paste which JO recommends), the meatloaf - although assembly requires some work - is a thing of beauty, the burgers, the beef chili, the chicken fajitas, the sauces, honestly absolutely everything! has been delicious and reheats beautifully. Only one iffy dish (pasta with baked seasoned brie) and that might have been more due to the quality of my brie. Not all of the recipes are speedy (there is a section for quick recipes and they're splendid) but they're all well-laid out and easy to follow and every single one has turned out the kind of food that a year later makes people jump in their car for my LEFTOVERS. You heard me.
This book is awesome, not only is the layout great, but the recipes are easy to follow and the results are mindblowing. Being a UK ex-pat now living in Northern Canada I miss my roasts and curries etc.
It's all great but the curries are out of this world. Hands down better curries than my old take-outs in the UK, sauces I bought at the store (expensive ones)meals at (East) Indian restaurants and the Madhur Jaffrey recipes. Don't get me wrong, I love Madhur's recipes and have been living off them for years contentedly, but Jamie's recipes burst with so much flavour and make me want to spend every spare moment cooking or eating the foods in this book.
Thanks Jamie for revolutionizing my food world and enabling me to love food so much more than before.
I've made one dish that didn't work out, but the meatloaf and roasted chicken were incredible and I will definitely be using this book for years to come!

I like this book, and the concept of it. Unfortunately, I find a lot of Jamie's recipes to be very watery and you need to add extra cooking time to get a decent consistency. Read morePublished 25 days ago by C. Messer
