Jamies Great Britain
Over the past few years, every British celeb chef has done a Great British recipe book. Is this one any different?
Jamie’s Great Britain explores much of the makeup of what contemporary British food is today. Through the millennia Britain has survived invasion, exploration, colonisation and immigration, all contributing to what is great about modern British food in the home today. Curry has replaced roast beef as the national dish and these trends are reflected in the book.
Jamie 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 this book is all about.
The book includes over 100 of Jamie’s favourite British recipes: some are indisputable classics, some are his versions of the classics, some may become classics with time – from scones, and Bubble and Squeak, to Yemeni lamb recipes from Wales, scallops with black pudding, roast veg vindaloo, and rabbit bolognese.
Don’t expect just familiar comfort food like old-fashioned bangers and mash and a ultimate shepherds pie recipe, you may well be disappointed. In this book Jamie provides a new twist on the British national cuisine.

Wickedfood Cooking School runs cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built Johannesburg cooking studio. Cookery classes are run in the mornings and evenings 7 days a week (subject to a minimum of 12 people). The venue is also popular for corporate events and private functions – teambuilding cooking classes, birthdays, kitchen teas, and dinner parties with a difference.
Our cooking lessons are hands-on, where every person gets to participate in the preparation of the dishes. They are also a lot of fun where you not only learn new skills, but get to meet people with similar interests. For corporate groups and team building cooking classes these events are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
