Product description

Jamie Oliver celebrates Britain's very best food in Jamie's Great Britain. Jamie grew up in one of the first true British "gastropubs", which his Mum and Dad still run today. For him, the heart and soul of real British cooking is food that puts a smile on your face. And that's what he wants to share in the new book: the essence of British food, done properly. Over the years, British food culture has embraced flavours and influences from all the people who came and made Great Britain their home. The food reflects an open-minded culture as well as the country's beauty. There are over 100 of Jamie Oliver's favourite recipes: some are indisputable classics, some are his versions of the classics, some should be classics but just haven't been made famous yet and others he's made up from the great bounty of British produce. Wherever you're from, if you love food Jamie's Great Britain will offer you a little taste of happiness. "There is only one Jamie Oliver. Great to watch. Great to cook". (Delia Smith). Jamie Oliver's career started as a chef at the River Cafe, where he was quickly spotted by the television company that made him famous as The Naked Chef. He has since published a huge range of bestselling cookery books, including The Naked Chef, The Return of the Naked Chef, Happy Days with the Naked Chef, Jamie's Kitchen, Jamie's Dinners, Jamie's Italy, Cook with Jamie, Jamie at Home, Jamie's Ministry of Food, Jamie Does, Jamie's 30-Minute Meals and Jamie's 15-Minute Meals.
