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.

This is a big book of amazing food porn. I've cooked several recipes already and they've been totally brilliant! Every page you turn draws you in more and more... It's definitely the most luxurious and exciting book Jamie has produced for a while. Perfect for weekend treats and dinner parties etc.. Nice one Jamie x

Such a beautiful book, every recipe looks incredible. I've already tried out the recipe for the molten cheesecake and it was divine! This book would make a great gift, as it feels really premium with its fabric cover.

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!

My family are in shock that I love this book as I'm not a fan of the TV programmes but this book is great. I've already made half a dozen meals from it and tonight I'm making the lamb of shoulder shepherds pie. This really is a great book - easy home cooking but it looks so special and my family are impressed.

As a fan of Jamie Oliver since his first book I was a bit disappointed in this book. It is a nice book with lots of lovely photographs. However it seemed a bit padded out ie there are four pages dedicated to porridge, four pages to bread and butter tart, four pages to toad in the hole - you get my drift?
Other disappointment was that at least half the book is given over to recipes which feed 8-10 people and up to 14 people. How many home cooks feed that number of people?
Also, and this is probably the publisher here, every recipe has a paragraph printed explaining the history of the dish etc. This is printed in red ink in very small typeface which is very difficult to read. It also has numerous photographs of Mr Oliver eating his own food and many of his children which really has nothing to do with the cooking of food.
In summary this book is disappointing. I don't feel Mr Oliver has anything new to say.

This is one of my favourite cook books and I own a lot of them. I am also a fan of Jamie's, although I don't own a lot of his books.

At first glance I thought the dishes seemed a little bit boring. I mean, I had already cooked a chicken tikka massala, a shepherd's pie and, a chili con carne or a lasagna. Those are quite common recipes and sound like nothing special. But as I examined the recipes again, I saw that he doesn't just give a recipe for a lasagna, he gives the BEST recipe for a lasagna. I have cooked dozens of lasagna's in my life, but the crispy duck lasagna was out of this world. Granted, it took me nearly a day to prepare, but it was worth it. All the people at the dinner table, including a professional chef, were silent and shaking their heads in disbelief at how good a friggin' lasagna could taste! And not just the lasagna. I have also made a few great flavours of ice cream, a brilliant tikka massala, the best meatballs ever (according to my husband) and a brilliant steak and onion sandwich. All the recipes I've tried so far (about 20) came out great and there are still a lot more I would like to try.

So, the recipes may seem nothing special, because they're classics, (but then again...comfort foods usually ARE classics, aren't they?) but rest assured that you get marvelous versions of these classics. They're not quick and cheap recipes, because most recipes take quite a lot of time, but in my book a lot of great food is slow food. The long ingredient lists and long time it takes to prepare the dishes are not a problem for me, because I really love to cook and I'm willing to wait for something great. It's not a book I use when I want something quick and easy, there are other books for that, but a book I use to cook for loved ones on a day I can take the time to cook with love while singing along to good music and sipping from a glass of wine ;-)
