Not a fan unfortunately. Felt like the recipes were too complicated and a hash of everything with no structure, consideration of costs or ideas on meal planning. I also think the food is a bit too fancy for midweek meals for fussy children. This is not family cooking in my eyes. Family meals (5 of us) are difficult, trying to satisfy everyones likes and dislikes, can be expensive and take 1-2 hours each night from start to finish for a simple meal. The word 'Superfood' may be suitable in the title but not 'family classics.' The best few pages are the 'kitchen hacks' at the back but only 7 of these recipes so not worth buying the book for those (and you can find these recipes in other books of his anyway).
My favourite books of Jamie's are still Save with Jamie and Ministry of Food and I think both of if those books have much more down to earth cooking, ingredients and more useful for the kind of cooking I do every day to feed my family.
All I want is a healthy family cookbook! And unfortunately this is not it and my quest continues! I hoped it would be a great go to book for mid week family meals, unfortunately the majority of dishes would cause too much trauma at the dinner table! Back to my Tana Ramsey family kitchen which all of us love!
Faffy recipes that take too much silly prep and we were not really impressed with the results. I mean please, why do i have to push plum tomatoes through a sieve at the end of a busy day when everyone is hungry. Not for us.
Really disappointed with the latest Jamie book - have a number of his previous books, always something to cook or to consider. This is clearly jumping on the health eating bandwagon - Who wants to eat chocolate porridge -( I'm afraid the picture doesn't do it any favours at all) Another section covers of to eat advocado in about 20 ways (yawn) there was absolutely nothing in the book that I would want to make, sorry Jamie I'll keep using your other books.
