1. Fun fact, Jamie hadn’t planned to write another 5 Ingredients book, but he was asked so many times by fans of the original (especially his wife, Jools!) that he decided to go for it.

2. Inspired by Jamie’s travels around the region, 5 Ingredients Mediterranean is packed full of dishes that celebrate the ever-popular Mediterranean diet, known for its simple, healthy recipes that highlight fresh ingredients and hero flavours.

3. If you loved the format of the original 5 Ingredients you will be happy to learn that the helpful visual ingredient guide will feature again in 5 Ingredients Mediterranean, making it easy to see what you need for each dish with just a quick glance. Each recipe will also include an easy-to-follow method with helpful tips from Jamie for getting it right every time.

4. 5 Ingredients Mediterranean will be accompanied by a primetime Channel 4 TV series. We’ll see Jamie exploring the Mediterranean and learning about regional ingredients and recipes, while he hunts for unique flavour combinations.

5. You’ll find chapters covering all aspects of everyday cooking, including Salads, Soups and Sarnies, Pasta, Veg, Pies and Parcels, Seafood, Fish, Chicken and Duck, Meat and Sweet Things, all with a Mediterranean twist.

5 Ingredients Mediterranean is available to pre-order now.
