Jamie Does celebrates the vibrant food of six very different places: Marrakech, Athens, Venice, Andalucia, Stockholm and the Midi-Pyrénées region of France. Jamie says: 'The food I've embraced on each trip is a mixture of what you could call the clichéd star dishes - the tagines of Morocco, the flamboyant paella of Spain and the zingy fresh flavours of a classic Greek ...more

Ik zag dit boek in de bibliotheek en besloot het te proberen. Het was zeker een leuk, en ook mooi boek, met veel fotootjes, lekkere recepten, en persoonlijke gedachten. Zeker een aanrader.

Actually I wanted to write that with this book I get the feeling to be fed up with my favourite chef. But as I was briefly skipping through the pages again, the enthusiasm grabbed me again. Especially the French and Morrocan section made my senses tingle - could almoust smell all the spices and feel the heat... The Swedish section was disappointing though, I think there are a lot better recipes typical for Sweden which do not contain fish. Therefore I recommend this one: Kitchen of Light: The Ne ...more
Some really inspiring recipes in here, one of which is finally a pumpkin tart that doesn't call for canned pumpkin- do you have any idea how difficult that is to find in the UK?! However these aren't really things that you can quickly rustle up for one, and the amount of meat in some is horrific, although he does tell you not to eat it all but to use it later for sandwiches etc.

Anyone who likes this book should read 'Falling Cloudberries' by Tessa Kiros, it has recipes again grouped by country,

Decent cookbook. I don't see myself making many of the recipes (sourcing the ingredients would be a decent amount of work where I live) but I tried the Swedish meatballs tonight and they were pretty good. The glamour shots of Jamie all over the place probably weren't necessary. I wasn't a big fan of him saying 'traditionally this country would make this dish like this, but I made it this way instead'...over and over. Small tweaks are understandable, but wasn't the whole point not to anglicize ...more

Awesome pictures but other than his section on food and recipes from Sweden, there wasn't much that was novel for me in the book. I tried a French salad, which was meh. I have practically read all of Jamie Olivers books and have been following him sporadically ever since he debuted as the naked chef, and so far I can say that the only recipes that are guaranteed to be great from Jamie Oliver are his christmas dishes. He is a lovely down to earth soul, but his dishes are really hit or meh.

Habe ich mir aus der Bibliothek geliehen, eine mir als schmackhaft vorgestellte Rezeptauswahl habe ich mir zum Nachkochen abgeschrieben, jedoch sind das ein Bruchteil aller Rezepte. Ich habe bessere Bücher von ihm. Aber das ist eine subjektive Geschmackseinschätzung, da Rezepte mit Schweinefleisch ja automatisch rausfallen, ist die restliche Auswahl eben kleiner.

It is a lovely cookery book for all those people who love food and cooking. Especially if you love cooking international dishes. The good thing about this book is that you don't only find the recipes, but the nice stories experienced by Jamie Oliver all over the world and surrounding those recipes. Highly recommendable for those food lovers like myself!!

Jamie Oliver can do no wrong in my book! I was salivating while just reading the recipes and looking at the pictures. I am looking forward to trying number of recipes, especially Paella, Creamy Mushrooms, Venetian Beef Steak, not to mention Spanish Vine Gelatto!

How is it possible that Jamie Oliver's books just get better and better? I can't open one without the salivary glands kicking into gear. The recipes made always turn out fabulous. This one shows glimpses into food cultures all round the world.
