Jamie’s Friday Night Feast Cookbook
This colourful cookbook from Jamie Oliver is billed as the ‘best of the best food from the Hit TV Series Jamie & Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast.’ Having not seen the TV series, I can’t comment if they have included the best of the best. But I can confirm that the recipes are trademark Jamie Oliver – easy to follow, nutritious and delicious. And the book is definitely about feasts, the full monty of food to enjoy. Many of the dishes are with celebrities, which adds an element of fun to the book.
The standout dishes for me were Epic Lamb Kebabs; Joanna Lumley’s Aubergine Kuzi; John Bishop's Ultimate Veggie Lasagne; Simon Pegg’s Lamb Tagine; Sienna Miller’s Duck Rago; Sarah Millican’s Tuscan Sausage & Tomato Pasta; Epic Poached Chicken & Dumplings; Beautiful Stuffed Porchetta and Orlando Bloom’s Lamb Shank Tagine.
Jamie’s Friday Night Feast Cookbook is presented in a fun, attractive package, and the photographs of Jamie with the various celebrities cooking adds to the overall enjoyment. It’s definitely a cookbook to be used and to invite your friends around for a feast. What are you waiting for? Choose any one of these great recipes and get cooking!
