Jamie Does... is Jamie's personal celebration of amazing food from six very different countries
Each chapter focuses on a different city or region - Marrakesh, Athens, Venice, Andalucia, Stockholm and the Midi Pyrenees region of France. Classic recipes sit alongside new dishes that Jamie learns along the way.
Jamie Does... shares inspiring dishes from Jamie's travels, including rustic Venetian Fish Stew, delicate Beetroot Gravadlax, Chicken Kebabs with creamy Avocado Dip and sweet Honey and Pistachio Cake.
'The food I've embraced on each trip is a mixture of what you could call the cliched star dishes - the many tagines of Morocco, the flamboyant paellas of Spain, the comforting risottos from Italy and the zingy fresh flavours of a classic Greek salad - and the recipes that I've been inspired to make after walking through the markets and soaking up the vibes of each place. What you'll find in Jamie Does... is fun, optimistic, escapist food you can actually cook and enjoy in your own home.' - Jamie
