As ever I downloaded this to kindle straight away and the formatting is perfect,with pictures displayed etc. I really appreciated the notes on what could be prepped ahead etc, though I might need a bigger fridge! The format is based around several menus for dining with family and friends, but I can already see recipes I would like to cook just for everyday (just not the full menu). There are also options for vegan/vegetarian alternatives which is a nice touch. (I really like the look of the vegetarian option for the roast dinner). The roast dinner menu took me straight back to childhood, as my Gran used to roast several joints at the same time for a special occasion, I am so going to do this to surprise my siblings! I definitely want to try the Curry night and Tex Mex first, and particularly the ice creams sound amazing. Mango in pistachio dust and a chocolate semi fredo with rice pudding as an ingredient! The summer pudding with cucumber Pimms and ginger beer sounds interesting, just wish it was back in June to try it at its best. I will come back and edit when I have tried out some of the recipes.
I have a lot of his cookery books, and im very fussy, but OMG , I love nearly every recipe on this book and can’t to try them. I don’t generally put reviews on , but felt this needed to be said. Amazing book Jamie ❤️
Some reviewers complained about the style of recipes in the book Some recipes in each celebration grouping are explained by method with the ingredients in bold type. Many of us, love these types of recipes. I quickly scan the bold type so I know the ingredients and then I follow the instructions which are written perfectly! I love the concept of this book, especially now that we are starting to get back with family and friends. I just made the Eggplant Daal - incredible! Thanks Jamie and your team.
This book like all of Jamies new books is brilliant and being accompanied by the TV show helps you really understand the recipes. Its also a big book and well priced unlike another british TV chef who just released their new book which got sent straight back! You can't go wrong with Jamie!
