The simple, produce focussed recipes that have made Jamie Oliver a household name are inspired by the cooking of Italy. Thus it was no surprise to find that Jamie decided to travel to Italy on a quest to find authentic recipes for his tv series Jamie’s Great Italian Escape. This cookbook is the culmination of that voyage.
There are more than 120 recipes ranging from antipasti and street food to salads, fish and meat. There is a great section on pasta and risotto. Every recipe is accompanied by a full page photo.
It is the simplicity that makes this book so fabulous. Written in Jamie Oliver’s distinctive laid-back, anything-goes style, Jamie’s Italy is a joy to cook from.
