Book Description

28 Aug 2014

Jamie's new cookbook brings together 100 ultimate comfort food recipes. It's all about the dishes that are close to your heart, that put a smile on your face and make you feel happy, loved, safe and secure. Inspired by everything from childhood memories to the changing of the seasons, and taking into account the guilty pleasures and sweet indulgences that everyone enjoys, it's brimming with exciting recipes you'll fall in love with.

Jamie's Comfort Food is all about the food you really want to eat, made exactly how you like it. With this in mind, the book features ultimate versions of all-time favourites, and also introduces cherished dishes from countries around the world, providing a delicious recipe for every occasion. This isn't everyday cooking - this is about weekends, holidays, celebrations and occasions. Whether you're home alone, or sharing the love with a big group of family or friends, there really is something for everyone.

Celebrating the beauty of good food is at the heart of this book, and it's jam-packed with incredible photography. Written in Jamie's usual down-to-earth and easy-to-understand style, the methods are precise and have been tested to the hilt, so are guaranteed to work, but this time Jamie has turned the edit filter off, and shares extra hints, tips and ideas throughout to ensure you achieve the best possible results. This is about making food the very best it can be, and embracing the rituals of cooking.

Recipes include everything from mighty moussaka, delicate gyoza with crispy wings, steaming ramen and katsu curry to super eggs Benedict, scrumptious sticky toffee pudding and tutti frutti pear tarte tatin.

Treat yourself, and your loved ones, with Jamie's Comfort Food.

If you can’t tell from the title of this review, I am so very impressed by this book. I own a lot of Jamie’s other books and certainly do like them, but I love this one for so many reasons…

I have posted a more in-depth review below as well as a full recipe list at the very end of this review but for those out there (and I know there are many of you) that want a quick summary of what’s hot and what’s not about this book, these first few paragraphs are for you.

What I LOVE about this book:

- The feel of the book, a small thing to some but the textured hard cover is lovely as are the individual recipe pages on good quality paper.
- The recipe images, there is an abundance for every single recipe, they are informative and inspiring (please see image uploads to see what I mean).
- The recipe formats and layout – you instantly see at the left of each recipe:
Number of servings
Time to make
Calories per serving
- Jamie’s intro at the beginning of each recipe, full of enthusiasm and instantly explains what the recipe is if unsure (a Pierogi is ‘basically a Polish boiled dumplin’… news to me!).
- The nutritional section at the back of the book, I always like to know the nutritional value of what I’m eating, it won’t spoil my chocolate brownie but it will make me balance my nutrition or exercise accordingly for the rest of the day.
- The recipes themselves are all dishes I WANT to and CAN make. See the recipe list at the end for yourself as this is pure opinion but these dishes are all my family’s kind of food and there is a great variety.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fabulous book by Jamie 3 Sep 2014
By JustMoi
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Love, love, love this book.....once again Jamie has produced a fabulous cook book with recipes that really do work, the mac n cheese recipe is delicious and I cant wait to make the marshmallow meringue. I very much look forward to cooking the Brisket too. Jamie is a great guy who creates great recipes that are easy to follow for those of us that aren't chef's. I highly recommend this book if you are a Jamie fan and want to create so delicious comforting dishes for your friends and family this winter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic recipes and great photography 29 Aug 2014
This is one of Jamie's best. It seems he's sat down and gone through all his favourite recipes and picked up this top 100+. I love that there are at least two photos of each dish and that it has a lot of international recipes, including great Vietnamese ones. As Oliver says, this is the opposite book of 30-mintue meals, as all these dishes need time to cook, which suits me. Highly recommended, even if it's just to look at the photos!

Stunning photography, stunning recipes, stunning motivation to get in the kitchen and cook. Did I mention stunning photography? If I knew someone who had lost their appetite I would give them a copy of this glorious book to stimulate their taste buds. I loved ministry of food ..... I love this more. Thanks Jamie!

5.0 out of 5 stars mmmm, heaven! 7 Sep 2014
By love reading TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Another cracker from Jamie!
This is a delicious cookery book in the usual wild, flamboyant and colourful style of Jamie. The pages are full of bright, vivid photographs tempting you to try the recipes which are headlined with alliteration and tempting titles.
The food itself is amazing! It is very appetising and delicious. Personally, I found the structure of the recipes a bit all over the place and lacking coherence but I suppose that adds to the flamboyant style of the book. I tried the Chicken Tikka Masala and it was easy and absolutely delicious, as was the Shepherd's Pie. I also loved the Mushroom Soup Pasta Bake that combines the two dishes! All are delicious and easy. These are all I have tried so far but they were gorgeous. The others that I will be trying in the coming weeks include Chicken Sharwarma, Katsu Curry, Massaman Curry, all the pastas and risottos, Mousakka and all the cakes!
The recipes in this book really are comfort foods; all sound yummy and satisfying and yet he has a calorie count for each recipe and many are surprisingly low. The recipes are cosmopolitan and highly flavoured dishes.
This book is a real winner and although I love all Jamie's books, this is already my favourite.
