After traveling the world and starting a food revolution, few people are as equipped to curate outstanding flavors from around the globe as Chef Jamie Oliver. In his gorgeously photographed fourteenth cookbook Jamie Oliver’s Food Escapes (Hyperion, $35) Jamie goes on the road to find the most mouth-watering, scrumptious, and delectable culinary highlights from Spain, Italy, Sweden, Morocco, Greece, and France, while adding his own unique, signature spin on traditional dishes. Home cooks will feel like they’ve traveled the globe without ever leaving their kitchens.
In his opening chapter on Spanish food Jamie introduces readers to Moorish Pork Chops with Spanish Beans (the “Bentley of beans”), a crash course on tapas and Tortas de Aceite (olive oil biscuits), while his chapter on Italian cuisine features Stuffed Zucchini Flowers, Beef Steak Venetian-Style, Venetian Fish Stew and the Best Tiramisu—enough to serve 12 hungry dinner guests.Jamie’s chapter on Morocco opens up the exotic flavors of North Africa with his take on Shrimp-Stuffed Fish with Vermicelli, Kefta, multiple variations on the classic Tagine, and a beautiful coiled traditional cake, M’Hanncha with date Sauce. For his take on Grecian flavors, Jamie takes readers to the birthplace of Western civilization, with recipes for Souvlaki, Incredible Lamb Fricasse My Way (for which Jamie urges readers not to be put off by stewing lettuce!), Grilled Octopus and heavenly Honeyed Feta Filo Pies.Let us dish out one more tease: In his final chapter, Jamie entices readers with classic French flavors, including Steak Tartare, Warm Quail Salad, decadent Black Truffle Omelettes and Duck Confit.
For every fan of Jamie and for every home cook who loves a variety of flavors in their kitchen, Jamie Oliver’s Food Escapes delivers delicious and inspired dishes to excite every taste bud.
