Overview

Having grown up in his parents' gastropub, Jamie Oliver has always had a special place in his heart for British cooking. And in recent years there's been an exciting revolution in the British food world in general. English chefs, producers, and artisans are retracing old recipes, rediscovering quality ingredients, and focusing on simplicity and quality. Jamie celebrates the best of the old and new (including classic British immigrant food) in his first cookbook focused on England.

Here are over 130 great, easy-to-prepare recipes, ranging from salads-Heavenly Salmon and Epic Roast Chicken; to puddings-Rhubarb and Rice Pudding and Citrus Cheesecake Pots; to Sunday lunch-Guinness Lamb Shanks and Roast Quail Skewers; and, of course, the crumbliest scones. America has already fallen for the new British gastropub cooking, with popular restaurants by chefs such as April Bloomfield of The Spotted Pig and the John Dory. Now Jamie shows how to make the same delicious food at home. This is definitely not your grandmother's mushy peas!

Editorial Reviews

Jamie Oliver received his first cooking lessons in the kitchen of his parent's rural Essex pub, so it's not surprising that he continues to nurture a healthy fondness of British cooking. That patriotic love manifests in Jamie Oliver's Great Britain, his first cookbook devoted entirely to the cuisine of his home country. The 130+ recipes accent tempting fare such as Sizzling Lamb Lollipops, Guinness Lamb Shanks, Empire Roast Chicken, Heavenly Salmon, Creamy Smoked Trout & Horseradish Pate and Sour Cranberry Bakewell. A pleasing mix of classic old recipes, immigrant specialties, and Jamie's own Brit-inspired concoctions.
