To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I pre-ordered this book as I usually love Jamie’s cookbooks. It arrived today and at a first glance was just as good as any other, but upon reading it more throuoghly I realised that several of the dishes have appeared before in other books, and I didn’t think there were any new terribly exciting recipes. It felt very “same-y”. To summarise, if you don’t have many of his books it’s a nice book with good recipes. For a more die-hard collector like myself it was a bit disappointing.
The best Jamie book to come out for some time. With his previous books I find myself going back to a small handful of star recipes but here I feel 90% of these recipes will be used time & time again. Well worth the investment.
I purchased this book as a Christmas gift for my brother-in-law. Of course he hasn’t received it yet, but as a cook/baker myself and a fan of Jamie’s show, I knew this book wouldn’t disappoint. The recipes seem different enough from what he usually cooks, but still easy to make and prepare too. There are also a few vegan and vegetarian recipes in the book and as a vegan myself this made me happy, as he now has no excuse not to invite me over the next time the family get together ;)
Jamie takes pretentious to new level, a book where there’s a photo of him posing or cooking with a celebrity. I really liked “Ministry of food” and “super food family classics” but definitely not this book
All the recipes have been cooked for or by celebrities on Jamie and Jimmy's Friday Night Feast which is screened on The Food Network / Channel Four. The usual Jamie Oliver standard with some different recipes.
Enjoy the series very much and it is wonderful to have recipes for the great dishes made on the show. Easy to follow and nicely put together, it makes a very easy to use and lovely to browse through cookbook.....as always from Jamie Oliver.
