Jamie Oliver’s Food Escapes


Jamie Oliver’s Food Escapes
By: Jamie Oliver


Jamie Oliver is back with a new cookbook that is all about fun adventurous recipes based on his world travels. He has taken over 100 of the most famous and exciting dishes from Spain, Italy, Sweden, Morocco, Greece and France. Oliver encourages you to discover the world through food and escape your daily routine one meal at a time.

Best of the Book

The stories and photos in this book are absolutely stunning. It is like a love letter to the regional dishes to the various countries that Oliver visits. Also the amount of recipes. With there being over 100, yes, you get the traditional regional recipes, but you also get some of the lesser known dishes that still define that area’s cuisine.

Could be Better

I am a huge Jamie Oliver fan so this book is about as perfect as it can be for me. But his voice does come through in the way he talks about food and describes each dish and region. If you aren’t a fan of this passionate British chef, this may not be the book for you. But if you would like to get to know him and his thoughts on travel and food – then give it a try!

Target Audience

This is the perfect book for anyone who is a Jamie Oliver fan or is looking to get a little worldly influence in your every day meals.
