Book Description

Nov. 14 2006
Bestselling author Jamie Oliver finally devotes an entire book to America's favorite cuisine--Italian!

Italy and its wonderful flavors have always had a major influence on Jamie Oliver's food and cooking. InJamie's Italy, he travels this famously gastronomic country paying homage to the classic dishes of each region and searching for new ideas to bring home. The result is a sensational collection of Italian recipes, old and new, that will ensure that Italy's influence reaches us all.

Italy has inspired Jamie Oliver throughout his career. His ambition has always been to travel across the country on a quest to capture the very essence of Italian cooking--and to produce the best and simplest Italian cookbook for everybody anywhere to enjoy.

Jamie's Italyis the result of that journey--and it's a land of plenty. As well as providing more than 120 brand-new recipes for everything from risotto to roasts and spaghetti to stews, structured as traditional trattoria menus, Jamie takes you all over Italy to cook with and learn from the real masters of Italian cuisine: the locals. Far from the standard "lemons and olives" version of Italian cooking,Jamie's Italyis a cookbook by the people for the people. From Sicily to Tuscany, it's about the local fishermen, family bakers, and, of course, the "Mamas," sharing their recipes and the tips that have gone into their cooking for generations. But it's not only mouthwatering food that Jamie brings back home: it's also the spirit that makes cooking and eating absolutely central to family life, whichever part of Italy you're in.

Bursting with the warmth and hospitality of real family life, this is both a superbly accessible cookbook and a unique travelogue and diary, in which you'll find the authentic flavor of Italy and the people who live there. If you love quality food prepared with genuine passion--you'll never want to leaveJamie's Italy.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Oliver, television's Naked Chef, may have been born in Southend-on-Sea, but he turns out to have an Italian soul in this collection of recipes from all over the Boot. As an outsider, Oliver has great reverence for the traditions of Italy, and he offers some surprisingly deep insight about how a lack of choice and a massive working-class population have kept those traditions alive. This is no sugar-coated fairy tale, however: Oliver doesn't hesitate to get down-and-dirty, as in a description of Palermo street food served by hand from a "chain-smoking, dirty-looking bloke," and he cogently explains why he insisted on including a "graphic and gruesome" photo of a slaughtered sheep. Indeed, Oliver enthusiastically encourages British and American readers to familiarize themselves with foods less common in their home countries such as rabbit. Nonna Giusy's Fish with Couscous reflects the African influences of Sicily, and Altamura Pea Soup with fresh peas and broken spaghetti perfectly represents the Italian genius for making something out of almost-nothing. Desserts include a simple Pear Sorbet with grappa. Candid photos such as one of Oliver's mentor's father, a 96-year-old who cooks for himself every day reinforce the personal feel of this collection, and the impression that Oliver has a deep affinity for Italian food, no matter his British roots.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Authentic Cookery Book Nov. 23 2007
By bachef TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having been to Italy many times I was really hoping for some special and authentic recipes in this book and it has delivered. It is a fun book to read as a novel as well. Although I normally just use recipes for inspiration this book has tons of great ideas that taste just as good as when in Italy. I have always liked and appreciated his writing style as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Jamie Classic! April 13 2013
By Mary
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Once again, Jamie hits everything bang-on the nail in his culinary mastery of authentic Italian cuisine.

The book is fun, has many recipes that one may not typically see even in a lot of other authentic Italian cookbooks, which is ode to Jamie. The book is visual eye candy of his travels in Italy, and like most Jamie Oliver cook books, expressively documents his stories and experiences, the people he met, etc. Like any Jamie Oliver cook book, the balmy photographs transport you directly to the place, and in this case, the warm, Mediterranean, sun-drenched land and rich cuisine if Italy.

I recommend this to anyone who loves Italian cuisine,but especially to the avid Jamie Oliver collectors. Whether you own one or all of his books, this one is fundamental to own.
