In his cooking, this UK cook use an interesting concept, including tips how to make several things in parallel that would result in complete meal. Although it sounds very interesting, his teaching is not always easy to follow that result in a bit more time needed for his recipes' preparation.
Therefore, whole book is more oriented towards people who already have more advanced skills in kitchen but can be also interesting to those who want to learn and improve their skills, especially considering preparation of entire meals for more than one person, because most of recipes inside are written for 4 people.
The cookbook is also oriented to people who don't have in restrictions in their diet, although they are several included that will be interesting for vegetarians or vegans.
He isn't restrictive about particular cooking type, in his book he included recipes that can be connected to usual Western cuisine, but also Thailand, Asian, Mexican, Chinese and other cooking styles.
I see that as his great virtue, promoting not only one ethnic group, but dishes from all around the world.
Overall, this is an interesting cookbook with slightly different cooking approach that requires a bit advanced cooking skills than usual, or lot of practice until you'll be able to achieve his timing.
Nevertheless, it could be recommend for your own practice or as great gift for someone who would like to learn some advanced cooking but don't have enough time for it.
And that sounds almost like to anyone...
I did notice that one of the big differences between finding/sourcing ingredients here versus in the UK (or at Irish grocery stores that I am familiar with such as Superquin and the UK Marks & Spencer) is that packages are usually larger. You don't often find a small 250 gram sack of rice - we are jumbo size! And whole tinned tomatoes (Jools Favorite Pasta) usually come in giant 32 oz cans rather than the smaller ones. Oh well. I make very good use of the bulk bins at Whole Foods. There are also some differences in the names of the cuts of beef and a few veggies - just goole it if you really get stuck and don't know that aubergine and eggplant are the same thing. And Jamie's readers also have ready access to Marks & Spencer which is a high-end grocery story that stocks TONS of excellent prepared ingredients that are only starting to become common over here. I haven't seen cooked beets anywhere except for Whole Foods and that was a new product.Read more ›
My complaint with this book is that it's hard to read and find what you want quickly. The layout is bad. As a 60 year old with fading eyesight the light grey text used means I have to read it under a strong light and strong glasses. The pictures are nice, but it's a terrible, impractical format for a recipe book. Some of his other books have similar issues. Written for young people with good eyesight. Maybe the Kindle version is better.
