This review is from: Jamie's Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals (Hardcover)
I bought this as a present for my son, a big fan of Jamie Oliver's recipes. It's a great book, and he was really looking forward to cooking many of the dishes but unfortunately it's not the new recipe book I believed it to be, but the American version of 'Jamie's Ministry of Food', (as I read in the small print in the inside front cover) so all the weights are in pounds and ounces, and the measurements in cups - no use at all to the metric generation. So now I'm going to have to return it for the original UK version, and I wish this fact had been clearer in the product details...

Thank you for the review. I would have purchased this book and been very disapointed to find it was the same as Ministry of Food.
