Jamie Does...is Jamie's personal celebration of amazing food from six
very different countries. Cheap, short-haul flights and long weekend
getaways have become increasingly popular and within a few short hours
of the UK there are new and exciting worlds of food waiting to be
discovered as Jamie finds out. Each chapter focuses on a different city
or region - Marrakesh, Athens, Venice, Andalucia, Stockholm and the
Midi Pyrenees region of France.
Classic recipes sit alongside new dishes that Jamie learns along the way. Alongside each recipe there is a beautiful photograph of the finished dish, as well as incredible reportage shots of Jamie's experiences in each country. Jamie says: 'The food I've embraced on each trip is a mixture of what you could call the cliched star dishes - the many tagines of Morocco, the flamboyant paellas of Spain, the comforting risottos from Italy and the zingy fresh flavours of a classic Greek salad - and the recipes that I've been inspired to make after walking through the markets and soaking up the vibes of each place. What you'll find in this book is fun, optimistic, escapist food you can actually cook and enjoy in your own home.'

Comments about Jamie Does:
Have to confess to not being a fan of Jamie's earlier books as recipes didn't turn out that great. This one however has been great. Not only are the recipes good, but the book itself is well presented and inspires you to try the different cuisines.
