    The first time I made pasta, I made Jamie's "Royal pasta dough"....... It is always perfect!

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Shepherd's pie

    • WFPLCleanEating on January 15, 2017

      Delicious!! Time intensive, but worth it. Not sure why the recipe calls for excessive amounts of meat and potatoes as you can't possible use them all for the recipe. (RMS-K)

  • Beans on toast

    • FJT on October 24, 2014

      Easy to make and very tasty without the cloying sweetness of commercial baked beans. The tub of chilli and rosemary oil that I had left over from making this recipe the first time has been used for other things and keeps well in the fridge ... which made making my second pot of beans even quicker! Next time I make this I may be tempted to add just a small amount of chopped chilli to the onions as they sweat down and skip making the oil. The beans themselves also keep well in the fridge.

  • Mushroom soup and pasta bake

    • WFPLCleanEating on February 10, 2017

      A lot of work for not a lot of flavor. I wasn't a fan of the thyme twigs. While eating, took the leaves off the twigs and sprinkled them over the dish. All the flavor was in the thyme so I'd recommend taking the leaves off the stems beforehand. (RMS-K)

  • Top quesadillas

    • Rutabaga on September 16, 2015

      Definitely not your typical quesadillas, these are instead an appealing, healthful alternative. You can sautee the sprouts in advance and later put together a meal in minutes. While the quinoa tortillas Oliver suggests were a good flavor match, and also add some protein to the dish, they were really a pain to make. Whole wheat tortillas would be an easier substitute. Also, these aren't as "kid-friendly" as traditional quesadillas, but as an adult I recommend them.

  • Winter nights chili

    • FJT on October 07, 2017

      This is a really nice chilli recipe, although it needed a lot more liquid than the recipe stated and was cooked well before the 5 hours were up. Loved the flavour and the heat from the 3 chillies I used (which I added after the onion had been sautéed rather than adding at the end) was about right.

    • lou_weez on April 08, 2017

      This is really delicious, especially with the salsa which adds a fresh, crunchy contrast. to the dish. Next time though I would add a few more chilies as I like it a bit hotter. I did reduce the balsamic vinegar to 120ml as I thought the amount stipulated in the recipe would be overpowering.

  • Proper veg lasagne

    • Lsblackburn1 on January 28, 2019

      This was a ton of work (which I expected) but maybe not worth it. My squash didn’t get done in the time he gave and the instructions to leave the skin on was not good advice! They were tough. Also, I couldn’t get all the fillings into my dish - should have used the roasting pan for it. End result was tasty, but not sure if it was 3 hours of work tasty.

  • Overnight roasted pork shoulder

    • Astrid5555 on November 20, 2016

      Only made the pork shoulder part of the recipe without the potato & fennel gratin. Big hit with the family, very little preparation time needed the night before and a lovely smell to wake up to. Served with mashed potatoes, which were perfect in combination with the delicious gravy.

  • Mighty Greek moussaka

    • Astrid5555 on October 10, 2014

      Very time consuming recipe with lots of different steps involved, i.e. cook potatoes, roast potatoes before even layering them up for the final Moussaka and again baking the final dish in the oven. I skipped simmering the white sauce for 15 minutes, but once thickened just used it. Preparation time of almost 3 hours aside, a very good and tasty Moussaka. Will make again when I have nothing else to do.

  • Unbelievable Provençal bake

    • WFPLCleanEating on February 10, 2017

      Mixed feelings about this dish. Delicious flavor, but not a lot of texture. Next time I'd forgo making crepes and use pasta. (RMS-K)

  • Dreamy marshmallow Pavlova

    • lou_weez on February 09, 2017

      This is a labor of love. But, while it does take a long time to make, it is definitely worth it. It can be assembled in the morning and will sit happily in the fridge until the time it is to be devoured.

  • Quinoa tortillas

    • Rutabaga on September 16, 2015

      I give these a low rating because they are just so difficult to roll out and get into the pan without having them fall to pieces. To be fair, I accidentally left out the baking soda. Maybe that would have helped? There was no way I could just roll out the dough on the counter as Oliver instructs, but fortunately I had fairly good luck rolling it between two sheets of plastic wrap. The difficulty was getting it from the wrap to the pan without the entire thing falling apart or bunching up in the pan, as the raw dough simply will not hold together. Once cooked, this is no longer an issue. The flavor was good, however, so I may try these again with baking soda to see if that makes a difference.

A bold new book of timeless recipes for soul-satisfying food, a classic in the making from the beloved chef.

Jamie Oliver, a.k.a. "The Naked Chef," is an international superstar. The beloved chef's warmth, good humour and inherent populism-not to mention his yummy, wholesome and simple food-have ingratiated him with millions of home cooks the world over. From his hit television shows, broadcast in more than 100 countries, to his record-breaking book sales, from his multi-platform web empire to his tireless real-world work as an advocate for the return to real, healthful food in our schools and kitchens, he is an unstoppable force for good-his "food revolution"-and for good food.

Now, with Jamie's Comfort Food, Oliver treats cooks to an enticing array of new and signature dishes that embody his inspiring cooking style: incredibly delicious yet healthful recipes that emphasize flavour and freshness over labour-intensive preparation and that are as much a pleasure to prepare as they are to serve. A classic in the making, Jamie's Comfort Food is packed with recipes for timeless dishes that warm the heart, each accompanied by a beautiful full-colour photograph. The perfect book for any home cook-including newlyweds, single folks, families, beginner cooks and those entirely at ease in the kitchen-Jamie's Comfort Food, with its soul-satisfying recipes, encourages cooks of all levels to get back in the kitchen and reminds us of the inherent happiness in cooking and eating homey meals for and with those we love. Major web platform: Jamie Oliver has an incredible web media platform in place. His dedicated YouTube channel, FoodTube, which features demos and lessons from the biggest stars in the business (Mario Batali, Nigella Lawson and others) as well as hilarious guest appearances by huge Internet food stars (like the guys from Epic Meal Time), has over 400,000 subscribers. He has almost 4 million followers on, and the comprehensive website for all things Jamie, receives 4.5 million unique page views per month. His three mobile apps, Jamie Oliver's Recipes, 20 Minute Meals and Jamie Oliver Food Guide, have been downloaded thousands of times.

A timeless book for all season, yet perfect for the holidays. Comfort Food is an inherently classic subject not susceptible to the caprices of food fads and industry trends, and it is a subject that lends itself perfectly to the holiday season, when families gather to share meals and, for much of the country, the weather turns cold and the days grow short.
Jamie's Comfort Food is both a book that readers will want to purchase for themselves as they start planning holiday get-togethers and a fantastic gift book, released in exactly the right season.
