Jamie Oliver Cookbook Review - "Jamie Does . . . ."


"Jamie Does . . . .  " is Jamie Oliver's personal celebration of delicious and amazing food from six very different countries.

Each chapter focusses on a different city or region - Marrakesh, Athens, Venice, Andalucia, Stockholm and the Midi Pyrenees region of France.  There are of course classic recipes but also new dishes that Jamie learns about in the course of his travels.  Alongside each recipe there's a photograph of the finished dish, as well as various photos of Jamie's experiences in each country.

A quite from Jamie himself about the book: "The food I've embraced on each trip is a mixture of what you could call the clich├ęd star dishes - the many tagines of Morocco, the flamboyant paellas of Spain, the comforting risottos from Italy and the zingy fresh flavours of a classic Greek salad - and the recipes that I've been inspired to make after walking through the markets and soaking up the vibes of each place. What you'll find in this book is fun, optimistic, escapist food you can actually cook and enjoy in your own home."

It is indeed a fab book with loads of stunning photos and lots of information about each dish with an introduction to each chapter.  This book would make a great Christmas Gift, however I was lucky enough to be given a copy to review.

You may also be interested to know that Jamie also has another cookbook out at the moment called Jamie’s Great Britain that would also be a great Christmas Gift and is available from WHSmith along with many other Jamie Oliver Cookbooks.
