Penguin to release £30 Jamie's Great Britain in September
25.05.11 | Charlotte Williams
A new Jamie Oliver title, Jamie's Great Britain, will be coming from Michael Joseph this September, containing more than 100 new recipes from around the country. The title, to be released on 30th September, will tie into a six-part Channel 4 TV series of the same name, also being broadcast this autumn. The book carries a £30 r.r.p. on the Nielsen biblographic database.
The book will include some British classics, as well as some twists on old favourites, and other original recipes Oliver has made using only British produce. The title will take in wider social and cultural influences on our national grub, as well as food and flavours brought here by those settling in Britain from all over the world.
Penguin c.e.o. Tom Weldon said: "Jamie has a real knack of tapping into the zeitgeist. With the recent Royal Wedding and the forthcoming Olympics, Britain has never been more in the spotlight. Combined with Jamie's passion for his subject and his track record of creating and inspiring and accessible recipes, this cookbook will show there has never been a better time to celebrate British food."
Jamie's 30-Minute Meals, with an r.r.p. of £26, became the bestselling non-fiction hardback in history last year.
