Great Book: Jamie at Home




S and I went on a little date this afternoon--bookshopping and local barbeque for dinner. Looking around the cookbook shelves (we've been eating in a lot lately), I couldn't help but leaf through Jamie Oliver's new book, Jamie at Home. The photographs, recipes and garden stories are a pleasure to see. English onion soup with sage, crispy asparagus and potato tart, creamy rice pudding with strawberry jam--yum, what a fine dinner this could be! Plus, you can't help but love the way Jamie lists his ingredients--"three knobs of butter." We don't have cable tv so I'm really looking forward to catching up on the cooking show sometime. Have others seen it? Is it as fine as the book itself?

I watch the show every week. The pizza episode, which was just on again, is my favorite. I love how he just pops into the garden and makes a meal of whatever is looking good that day. Jamie makes me believe I can cook. I have two of his cookbooks already and love Jamie's dinners, especially Jule's beef stew and the Maryland Chicken, which have both been made many times in my house.

I actually like the show better than the book. Definitely try to see it sometime!

I just adore everything he does! I've browsed this book quite a few times but have yet to take the plunge---let us know which recipes you try!

I bought this book a few weeks ago! The roomies and I made the roasted carrot salad and the seafood grill. Both were amazing. There are so many things I am eager to make.
