Jamie's Great Britain

Jamie's Great Britain

Following on from the Channel 4 TV series Jamie's Great Britain book is a collection of all of his Great British recipes. It's not full of bangers and mash, pie and chips and spotted dick as you may expect from a cookery book about British food, instead it is a collection of recipes influenced by flavours from around the world.


Jamie says :
I like to think of Great Britain as a Magpie Nation because throughout our history we seem to have collected beautiful flavours from elsewhere and worked them into our own culture.


The sections include the following :


Breakfasts
Soups
Salads
Pub Grub
New British Classics
Afternoon Tea
Seaside
Pies and Puddings
Sunday Lunch
Wild Food
Vegetables
Puddings
Condiments

There is something for everyone and if, like me, you like to read cookery books like a novel then this one is for you as it's full of very interesting snippets about communities around the country and their special recipes.

I particularly like the condiments section  with recipes for Piccalilli, Sunday lunch sauces, preserved chillies, mustards, mayonnaise, flavoured vinegars and my favourite, flavoured Gin and Vodka - one of my latest ventures.

I was sent a copy of Jamie's Great Britain for the purpose of this review.
