Jamie doesSince the advent of Wickedfood Cooking School, Jamie Oliver has been writing cookery books. Though the past few years these have been location orientated. Cheap, short-haul flights and long weekend getaways have become increasingly popular and within a few short hours of the UK there are new and exciting worlds of food waiting to be discovered as Jamie finds out in his latest book Jamie Does… .

Each chapter focuses on a different city or region – Marrakesh, Athens, Venice, Andalusia, Stockholm and the Midi Pyrenees region of France. Classic recipes sit alongside new dishes that Jamie learns along the way. Alongside each recipe there is a beautiful photograph of the finished dish, as well as incredible reportage shots of Jamie’s experiences in each country.

Maybe not his most memorable book, but nonetheless offering a good selection of classic European dishes. Well worth the purchase, if this is the only book on European cuisine that you plan to own.

Wickedfood Cooking School runs cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built cooking studios. 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 – team building cooking classes, birthdays, kitchen teas, and dinner parties with a difference.

Our classes 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 teambuilding cooking classes these events are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
