Notes about Recipes in this book

  • A kinda Portuguese custard pie

    • manne on November 16, 2010

      easy

  • Campari and passionfruit sorbet

    • Hellyloves2cook on May 26, 2012

      Made this a few times for Dinner parties. Easy to make and a nice combination.

  • Mary's Saturday soup and dumplings

    • Applepie24 on January 03, 2015

      Personally, I like to double the dumpling recipe.

  • Pappardelle, spicy sausage meat and mixed wild mushrooms

    • Astrid5555 on January 28, 2014

      Overall ok, but won't repeat. Very salty and very fatty, probably due to the sausages I used. Had to drain the oil from the pan at some point and did not add 3 tbsps of butter. Used dried pasta instead of fresh one to make it weeknight dinner friendly.

    • lilham on December 04, 2015

      This is a nice and quick after work dinner, especially you have picky children to feed. (Like many other children, both mine will eat pasta and sausages). The quality of the sausage used make or break this dish. I used a sweet chilli sausage. (If I'm not feeding my children, I'd prefer using a hot smoked paprika sausage). Unlike Astrid, I didn't have problem with oiliness. In fact, I needed to add more oil to the pan after adding the mushrooms. I used dried fusilli, dried thyme and skipped the chilli. I also used standard white button mushrooms. As for the butter, I just added a knob to taste.

  • Potato and Jerusalem artichoke soup with thyme, mascarpone and hazelnuts

    • Dishyrishie on August 21, 2015

      A brilliant winter warmer. Remember to strain to minimise the windy effects of the artichokes.

  • Prawn and pea risotto with basil and mint

    • Suzie1011 on March 23, 2015

      Do not use as much lemon as Jamie recommends, I did this the first time and ruined the whole thing. I would say halve it and then add more if necessary.

    • VineTomato on July 20, 2017

      We love this recipe, one of our all time favourite dishes

  • Spaghetti with anchovies, dried chilli and pangritata

    • VineTomato on May 25, 2017

      Very tasty, but oily. I've had simpler anchovy pasta dishes that are better, the lemon doesn't work quite as well as it does in some of Jamie's other pasta dishes, for example his NYC arrabbiata.

  • Spinach and porcini with rosemary and lemon

    • Curly73 on December 11, 2015

      There is a squeeze of lemon at the last stage seasoning

  • Tray-baked cod with runner beans, pancetta and pine nuts

    • Foodelf on April 29, 2012

      This was so easy to put together and took about 30 minutes from start to finish. The longest part was trimming and slicing the beans. When I first tasted it I thought it a touch bland but as I continued to eat, I realized it's all about the simplicity of the flavours - fresh and spring-like. Don't skip the pancetta or pine nuts. I really enjoyed it and think it lends itself to some tweaks. Possibly using asparagus instead of beans, adding some thyme or summer savoury, slicing scallions the same size of the beans to roast along with the beans. I bet it would be very nice with halibut.

    • JoShaw56 on February 04, 2015

      We found this recipe OK but not brilliant - we weren't blown away by the flavours. If I made it again I'd steam the beans for a bit before hand as we didn't feel they were quite cooked enough.

  • Tray-baked pork chops with herby potatoes, parsnips, pears and minted bread sauce

    • chele on January 15, 2012

      Looks really good in the picture in the book, but really was just ok. The vegetables took about 1h30mins to cook. (Rather than 45m-1hr) (Perhaps they should be par-boiled a bit first?) The pork was fine. We didn't try the minted bread sauce.
