Who’s the author? Jamie Oliver, the nation’s most famous Essex boy, has been teaching us how to cook since 1999.

What’s it about? Comfort Food is all about recipes that hit the spot at a certain time, and have the capacity to pull out explicit feelings and old memories – it’s about perfection, indulgence and proper good cooking. It has the power to make you feel safe, secure, fulfilled, excited and loved – and most importantly, it’s the perfect way to treat the ones you love.

Recipes we love: Chocolate celebration cake! It’s the most amazing tasting chocolate extravaganza – the perfect showstopper for any special occasion. Winter Nights Chilli, a full-flavoured, hearty dish with meat that will fall apart and melt in your mouth.

It’s a good book for: People who love cooking and want to take their skills to the next level.

Jamie says: “This beautiful book contains, without doubt, my most scrumptious, gratifying, new and exciting recipes in the wonderful world of comfort food. It’s all about those simple, delightful guilty pleasures we all love. It celebrates nostalgic memories, traditions and childhood favourites. It embraces the ritual of cooking and dishes that will pick you up and raise your spirits. This is about good mood food that will put a massive smile on your face. And, of course, all those desserts, puds and gorgeous, sweet indulgent treats that are too good to miss. This is your go-to comfort cookbook – I hope it finds a happy home on your shelf.”
