From School Library Journal
Starred Review. Oliver, host of numerous TV cooking shows and author of seven other cookbooks, is just as passionate about food and cooking as he was when he burst on the scene in The Naked Chef. One of his newest fascinations is with gardening, and this companion volume to a PBS series of the same name shows off the fruits of his labors in the garden he started several years ago. His recipes have always featured fresh, seasonal ingredients, but here they are organized by season and within each section by ingredient, from Crispy and Delicious Asparagus and Potato Tart in spring to the Best Winter Veg Coleslaw. Each chapter includes gardening information (e.g., how Oliver grows asparagus), and there are dozens of gorgeous color photographs. Highly recommended.

Plus, his book is well-designed, simple and clean, but beautiful (especially the food photography, which is in color). My husband and I can't wait to go through his book and cook through the seasons with our fresh, farmer's market-bought food!
Hadn't really heard of Jamie until recently (no I don't live under a rock), but I'm definitely a fan now and it's his TV programs that did it! Do yourself a favor and watch the Jamie at Home series, the book follows it exactly and you'll get even more out of it.

Jamie introduces a vegetable with a spread explaining how he grows tham in his garden, with lots of wholesome photos of him getting his hands muddy. Then follows a section on using that vegetable in the kitchen. Some recipes revolving around it, others focusing on a different main ingredient.
The pie recipe is a favourite.
I love all Jamies recipes ..
