I just lost 11 pounds and Jamie Oliver is trying to make me pack those pounds back on with this book! If you are a fan of Jamie Oliver and his style, this book won't disappoint. I will say that just looking at the pictures is enough to leave me hungry and hankering to jump into the recipes. You will find just like I did that Jamie's personality shines through the book, which is great since he brings sincere caring, humor and a bit of unedited stream of thought to the table. A fine cookbook and a great read. I highly recommend it.
My daughter just bought this for me (I love English food - I did my post graduate work in London), and it is all the food we stuffed ourselves with and loved. What fun to read and revisit.
