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.

After all the 30/15 min stuff, and their chaotic use (with 4 recipes going on at the same time), Jamie goes back to more classic recipes. Comfort food is what it is : quite heavy and fat, not always a huge meal, but mostly quite long to cook. While in the UK book the pictures kind of sucked (very messy, I know Jamie likes things a bit raw and chunky but that was too much), the presentation here is better. Not too polished, not too messy, and appetizing.

Recipes are also good, and quite varied. Salads, roasts, burgers, quite a lot of cakes/desserts. It feels like it's what Jamie cooks at home. The main problem of the book is that it's not a browsing book : it's not very organised. There isn't much difference between "ritual", "pick me up" or "nostalgia" recipes, you really feel he made up those up to find a way to seperate the recipes in sections : it failed. And since you'll find in the same section stuff from Italy, France, Asia or America, you end up selecting your recipe by checking the index and selecting the main ingredient you want to cook with. Using the classic "entrée" "main course" "dessert" layout would have been better.

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.

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!

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

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!

Great recipes, but loads of them are for 12-16 people. Who cooks for that many people on a regular basis?

Have read this book cover to cover at least 12 times, visually it is Jamie's best book to date. The recipes are simple and easy to follow standouts for me are the chicken shawarma, irresistible pork buns and last but not least the lobster mac n cheese! Looking forward to putting more recipes to the test
