Product Description

Jamie proves that travel and food are the real color of life! For most of us a short break means museums, galleries or beaches but for Jamie it's all about food and he reckons you can learn a lot more about a place from how they cook and eat.

Disc 1. Andalucia (Spain)- In Adalucia Jamie joins trainee bullfighters practicing in Spain's oldest bull ring and cooks paella for the whole village.

Disc 2. Midi-Pyrenees (France)- In the Midi-Pyrenees Jamie goes truffle-hunting with a pig and boar hunting with dogs.

Disc 3. Stockholm (Sweden)- It's off to Stokholm where Jamie tries to avoid skinny dipping at a traditional crayfish party.

Disc 4. Marrakesh (Morocco)- In Marrakesh, Jamie explores the alleyways of the old Medina and the wildly exotic Djemaa el Fna square as he dodges snake charmers and tooth sellers to try out the street food of the city.

Disc 5. Venice (Italy)- Venice sees Jamie going off the tourist track to meet aristocrats in a palazzo and the lady prisoners who are growing vegetables behind bars in Giudecca.

Disc 6. Athens (Greece)- In Athens Jamie tries his hand at spear fishing and meets bee keepers with plenty of stories to tell.

Format: DVD
I have been following Jamie Oliver since his first series "The Naked Chef". Usually when I watch his shows, they make me want to cook. This series makes me want to travel. Though there is some cooking in each episode, there is also a lot of discovering the local scenery and culture. For example, in Andalucia, he goes to bullfighter school. In Morocco, he explores the markets, pastry shops, and spice vendors of Marrakesh with snake charmers and cobras in the background.

Where he does cook, he seeks to incorporate the culinary traditions of the place he is visiting. In Spain, he makes paella for 500 people in an enormous pan over hot coals near the village square. In Morocco he cooks lamb stew in a clay pot in the wood fired oven of the baths. In France, he joins hunts for truffles and for wild boar. In Sweden he tries canned herring which has been allowed to ferment well beyond its "use by" date before opening.

His earlier shows focused on showing how to prepare uncomplicated and tasty dishes at home with ordinary ingredients. Here we find truffles and quails eggs and freshly killed wild rabbit. We see huge crusty loaves of sourdough bread being baked in a wood fired oven and Jamie being initiated into an ancient society of bakers, though he doesn't make any bread himself and no bread recipe is provided. He does makes duck confit with a key ingredient being a big jar of duck fat.

If you have the slightest interest in exploring the world and in discovering the culinary traditions of foreign lands, these beautifully photographed shows are a visual pleasure. You'll see some of the sights and be introduced to some of the dishes which are specialties of each place.

Purchased this DVD set on Amazon for my husband this Christmas and they are a huge hit. He is really enjoying them. My husband is a chef and our family loves Jamie Oliver-- perfect addition to our J.O. cookbooks.

I love this series. We started with the French Pyrenees online and then ended up buying all of the episodes. This series is really a look into what makes each city/area special, including the people and lifestyle. Food is such an important reflection of culture and geography, and Jamie really highlights the unique and special ingredients and cooking styles from each region. But he also talks to people, takes us to the markets in the different areas, takes us fishing and farming, etc. I feel like it is almost a travel show, but with a story that is told through food.

We bought this set because Jamie was always our favorite reason for waking up early on the weekends just so we could catch one of his cooking shows. We have a real passion for our food. We are always searching out the best produce we can possibly find. Thanks to Jamie's teachings about fresh food and where to look for it. We recommend this awesome DVD set to anyone who has a real taste for flavor and adventure.

I love Jamie Oliver. Try some of his recipes (too bad that none of them succeed, as I just start to cook recently) but love his techniques. I enjoy watching his journeys. Beautiful and tasty!!

For a real food expert, from proper authentic ingredients, to how food should fit in life, to exciting presentation, no one is better than Jamie Oliver. He is someone to buy into for one's food philosophy. This set of videos is great not only for the items he cooks, but within the context of where the dishes originate. The credits are a bit corny, but the rest is just terrific.
