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.

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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jamie's best, but not without flaws 15 Oct 2014
By Paul Lynch VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
For me, this book is by far his best. I am a regular cook (household cooking duties are shared), and I don't mind putting extra effort in when the results will be worth it. Many of the recipes given in the book are variations on ones that I make often for myself, which I guess is one thing that makes it comfort food. It also misses some of the factors that have been criticised in earlier books: inaccurate timings for the average cook; superficial, "Jamie'd" recipes; and so on.

I have made a couple of the recipes, and will definitely be making many more. The touches of genius are where the deviations from regular versions of the recipe make it far better, like the browned onions in the meatballs, roast duck for the lasagne, and many more; when the recipes don't deviate from the standard version, like the hamburger recipe, you know that the instructions will be spot on.

I have one criticism, and it's a big one (takes the rating down from five to four stars for this alone): the table of contents doesn't list the recipes in each chapter. They are all included in the index, but I am afraid that's not much use to me. The overall quality of the recipes is a tribute to his research staff (let's not pretend that Jamie himself created more than a small fraction of the recipes), which makes this omission all the more surprising.

So, if you like Jamie's books, or want to take your routine cooking "to the next level", as Jamie might say, then you want this. That's where a cookery book can really score: when it takes your day to day recipes and either adds in new favourites, or makes your old favourites even better. It's not a teach yourself to cook manual, and it sticks to the well known Jamie profile: vaguely anglo-italian, with rosemary in everything. But it's no worse for that.
