Jamie's Great Britain - Celebrating Britain's very best food
Jamie Oliver grew up in one of the first true British 'gastropubs', which his Mum and Dad still run today. For him, the heart and soul of real British cooking is food that puts a smile on your face. And that's what he wants to share in Jamie's Great Britain: the essence of British food, done properly.
Over the years, British food culture has embraced flavours and influences from all the people who came and made Great Britain their home. The food reflects an open-minded culture as well as the country's beauty. There are over 100 of Jamie's favourite recipes: some are indisputable classics, some are his versions of the classics, some should be classics but just haven't been made famous yet and others he's made up from the great bounty of British produce.
I've included spots I've been eating at for years as well as places I've just discovered on my recent travels around Great Britain. My trusty food team and the gang at Jamie's Italian have also shared some of their favourites, as have the brilliant team at Rough Guides. Now that we've got everything in one place we'll be updating it with more recommendations on a regular basis, and I really want you guys to do the same. So anytime you find something that rocks your world - whether it's a country pub that puts on a great Sunday roast or a brilliant curry house tucked down a side street in your town - snap a picture, upload it and share it with the rest of us. We've got so much to be proud of, let's get out there and enjoy it.'
