Jamie's Italy


by Jamie Oliver

I was having an Italian themed Christmas party and made several dishes from this cookbook. They all turned out great. I've made the Tiramisu three times since because everyone loves it. It is less sweet and not as much trouble as other recipes I've used but the ingredients are a little pricey.
Last weekend we made pizza. The dough is a little messy. I tried to make it in a stand mixer I may just use Jamie's by hand method next time. The pizza turned out just like the pizza we loved in Italy. You really need a pizza stone for your oven to get the crisp crust.
I have lots of cookbooks, some are for show and some I really cook with - this book cooks!

The Naked Chef is at it again. This is a treat of a book with exceptional photography and very useful recipes. I love the heavy paper too. Jamie appears throughout the book and it is worth every penny. I didn't know he and his wife own so many restaurants around the world until I read it here.

The book has some extraordinary recipes but, generally, as an Italian cookbook (reviewer being, Italian first generation American) it lacks many of the recipes I remember from my youth cooked my Mom and Nonna or their friends, which I was hoping I might find within it.
   Do not misunderstand me, it is a fine cookbook, I was just hoping to find more authentic Italian recipes in it and the structure is a little odd.
P.S. The polenta recipe is simply WOW!
