I confess I'm addicted to Jamie. That's why I normally buy every new book of him. Last time I didn't cause I knew most of the recipes in 'Ministry of Food'. This time there were lots of new and promising ideas in the book. The appearance was appealing as always - designed in the usual solid (Jamie)style: Great pictures, clearly arranged recipes and some enjoyable stories. But after trying the fist ones I recognised most of the things were just not my taste. I liked the wild west rice (p 320)and of course the NYC cheesecake and the velvet cupcakes, but I would have been more satisfied if Jamie would have picked some other states for his book. It'll clearly be the underdog amongst my other cookbooks.
