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

The New York Times Book Review
…workaday classics that define British comfort food: pies, puddings, roasts, pub grub, afternoon tea cakes and lots of root vegetables. Oliver restores all of these to a place of honor, updating throughout with a deft hand. The book is beautifully produced, with period typefaces and graphic elements to go with the travelogue-style photographs of Britain's culinary byways, many of them featuring Oliver at work and play.
—William Grimes
