5.0 out of 5 stars If you love italy you will love this 15 Dec 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a fly on the wall look at Jamie Oliver and his trip to Italy to enhance his cooking skills. The DVD will appeal to those who love cooking as well as those who have a love for Italy. Its also a revealing peek into the life and outlook of Jamie who humbly accepts the regionalisation of Italian cooking and how he bows to Mama as the boss of the kitchen and household. Its great to see him interact with families and how quickly he picks up Italian and is bold enough to try his own ... learnt on the journey down to Sicily. Its a facinating dvd and will provide hours of enjoyment as well as ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great trip journal! 31 Jan 2011
By Dana C.
Buying this item I was expecting to find out a lot of Jamie's secrets in Italian's cuisine. Instead I got a very intersting trip journal whose main character was of course Jamie Oliver, talking about food most of the time, but giving only few recipes. Even so, my money was well spent and I am happy about this aquisition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good If you're a fan - not too many recipes 25 Oct 2011
Yet another series where the main focus is on Jamie rather than the food. If you're a fan and are familiar with his previous books, programs and DVD's then you will enjoy wathcing the full DVD in one day, probably cooking or enjoying a nice glass of Italian wine. If you're not a fan and expect to get a lot of recipes of this series you might walk away disappointed. The series shows a great scenery of Italy and is a nice point of view on how various regions vary and what sort of cuisine the "real" Italians do at home.

There's a VW camper on the cover because that is what Jamie drives around Italy in! I've been longing for this DVD to be released - it's been delayed at aleast twice, and hoping someone will buy it from my wish list for Christmas!
