I was a little unsure of what to expect with Jamie’s Great Britain. On my first look through the book it all looked a bit too traditional British fare, which is not the kind of food I like. However once the accompanying TV series started I realized there might be a bit more worth exploring.

The series is fascinating because Jamie travels through different regions of Britain and looks and what migration has influenced each area. He then looks at what is considered the classic British food of that region and shows how immigrants over time have shaped it.

I’ve got a list of other recipes to try including a Mighty Mulligatawny, a Beef & Beer Pie, Creamy Crunchy Leeks (I LOVE leeks) and the Retro Arctic Roll. Yum!!
