Jamie Does ...is Jamie's Oliver personal celebration of amazing food from six very different countries. Cheap, short-haul flights and long weekend getaways have become increasingly popular and within a few short hours of the UK there are new and exciting worlds of food waiting to be discovered as Jamie finds out. Each chapter focuses on a different city or region - Marrakesh, Athens, Venice, Andalucia, Stockholm and the Midi Pyrenees region of France. Classic recipes sit alongside new dishes that Jamie learns along the way. Alongside each recipe there is a beautiful photograph of the finished dish, as well as incredible reportage shots of Jamie's experiences in each country. Jamie Oliver says: 'The food I've embraced on each trip is a mixture of what you could call the cliched 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 Jamie Does ...is fun, optimistic, escapist food you can actually cook and enjoy in your own home.' "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 Ministry of Food, Cook with Jamie, Jamie at Home, Jamie's Italy, Jamie's Great Britain, Jamie's 30 Minute Meals and Jamie's 15-Minute Meals.

Wow, what a fantastic book! Broken down into different types of cuisine, Jamie puts his usuan spin on classic dishes from Italy, Greece, Spain and even Sweeden (my favourite!) amongst others. Everything looks mouthwatering and within a day of owning the book I had already planned out my menus for the next couple of weeks!. Jamie's paella is divine and am looking forward to trying the Swedish meatballs next, which I'm sure will beat the ones they serve at Ikea hands down!

This is a beautiful looking book with great photos. You get a little bit of a story about Jamie's travels in each country before he presents a series of dishes he learned there. The dishes sound delicious and are not too difficult.
