This one is no small cookbook with over 400 pages it has wealth of Italian recipes and has a foodie travel log feel to it.
That said it is very much in Jamies’ style with clear to follow recipes, ingredients and nutritional recipes on the left and beautiful pictures of the finished dishes to the right.
Would especially recommend to any vegetarians and pasta makers out there!

Saw Chef Oliver's food expedition on You/FoodTube to Italy for the most down-to-earth, homey dishes with the nonni, the nonni bellissimo and their past down generations dishes that were prepared with heart and soul. I love these nonni bellisimos:). They are cuddly-adorable! I love how they shared their appreciation, the nature, the value, the beauty, the scarcity, the art and the heart of food. They shared without any reservations so that this book can be published and be presented to us who can also participate and carry on the wonderful traditional Italian dishes. Chef Oliver, Chef Contaldo and their team did a marvelous job in piecing them all together.
Every recipe includes: Title, brief of the dish, serving sizes, prep/cooking time, ingredients, procedures nutritional value table and beautiful photos of the dish that you just want to put your aprons on and start cooking or eat them right out from the pages. Chef's team (led by photographer Mr. David Loftus) took painstaking work to compile the beautiful photos of the nonni, the places where both chefs ventured out and upscaled the dishes they have learned from each of the nonni. All the scenarios, people and close-up photos are so vivid that you just want to jump into the book and join the company. They have captured the memorable moments. You will also find stories of the different nonni and their word of wisdom about cooking and life...All this is bonded in a 400+ pages of fine-graded paper, hardcover, by Penguin Random House, UK. Printed in Germany by Mohn Media.
Chef Oliver will also show you many of the cooking techniques such as preparing the pasta and dough from scratch with simple techniques like a child's play. Really fun and tasty. This will be part of my future whole-child culinary curriculum, in blueprinted-plan. Need sponsors, please:)
I just want to reiterate that the backbone of this beautiful book by Chef Jamie Oliver, Chef Gennaro Contaldo and their team are the most bellissimo nonni from the "caves", hillsides, countrysides, inner cities, seashores, the fars and wides in Italy as chefs travel with sweat and souls to hunt their treasure depots. These nonni dishes range from "cucina povera" to the governor's house. Each with their own special ingredients but never a heart-beat missing with the dishes they prepare with their aged hands, adorable faces and golden hearts. They reminded me of my lovely and endearing grandmamas who introduced me to their kitchens and didn't mind a mite in messing up their havens. Their love to prepare food to nourish the bodies and cherish the souls of others with lots of TLCs just bubbles over! This is vividly portrayed in Chef Oliver's Jamie Cooks Italy.
Grazie mille to you chefs, your team and nonni bellissimo! Bene Fatto! Ottimo! Bravissimo!
Dear Chef Oliver, Chef Contaldo and your wonderful team:)
I am a Taiwnese-American and have been introduced to various cultures of food by my dearest Ocean-Liner Captain daddy. He enjoyed the culture and the food there. I certainly hope that you and your team will expand your scope of cultures and travel to Taiwan, Japan, Korea(South), Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, etc. and venture out with their authentic, exotic and delicious foods. Your eyes will be really open. Just be super careful of where/what to eat and drink. Another tip, avoid the summer or tropical-weather seasons. How about another book just as beautiful as this one, not for my collection but for real cooking:)
Received the book today, R.09.20.2018. Looking forward to dig into the riches of this phenomenal and heart-winning Italian homey cookbook to feed my sweet family and those around me, like my dear chefs at College of Lake County. The Department Head is my wonderful Chef, is Italian.
P.S. Remember to also eat The Tree of Life and drink The River of the water of Life! Seek and you shall find.
