    The UK had/has (?) a reputation for not great food which was probably fair many years ago but is not true now. One of the (many)people responsible for making a difference has got to be JO whose TV programmes and many cookery books have inspired us to be braver and bolder as cooks. I’ve got most of his books in my vast cookery book collection and I find his recipes work and most importantly they are easy to follow. I like cooking but don’t want to spend hours preparing and faffing about! The UK had/has (?) a reputation for not great food which was probably fair many years ago but is not true now.

I’ve got most of his books in my vast cookery book collection and I find his recipes work and most importantly they are easy to follow. I like cooking but don’t want to spend hours preparing and faffing about!I’m not a vegetarian, if I’m any kind of ‘arian I’d class myself as a pescatarian. I eat very little meat mainly because I don’t like it very much. I’m trying to eat more veg so this book fits the bill for a more concerted move in that direction. I’ve now tried quite a few of the recipes. They’re easy to follow and really tasty. I’ve particularly liked the Vegetable Tagine, the chilli recipe is delicious, the stuffed aubergines, the allotment cottage pie is reallyyummy as was the moussaka. There are a lot of other recipes I’ll try over the next few weeks. There are some things I definitely won’t cook for instance the cauliflower cheese pizza pie doesn’t float my boat. The other thing JO needs to bear in mind is that most of the country doesn’t live in London where I imagine it’s much easier to get hold of some ingredients and also that some of us don’t have a wonderful Italian deli round the corner. The chances of me getting carta di musica bread in North York’s is slim to probably none, hence the loss of the fifth star. Overall, a very useful addition to my collection and one I’m anticipating using a lot.

    Perfect timing. Exactly what I needed in my life. Some of this annoying guy's veggie inspiration.I love meat. I am a voracious meat eater from way back. But I don't mind a vegetarian meal from time to time. Then, after Jamie Oliver released his two Super Foods cookbooks, I started craving, and cooking, vegetarian meals regularly. From seven days a week meat based meals, I have shifted to veg meals maybe two to three days a week. Sometimes, gasp (don't tell meat), I can even do five days in Perfect timing.

Insanity.Great book. Becoming a 'go to book' already.

    This book is declared to John Hamilton his Art Director & friend thus providing what I always say about cookbooks that it is not just the recipes but the photos & plates .A chef can write great recipe but in book if it is not displayed well it will not sell.Jamie has been very lucky over his last 21ys because of Hamilton.

    As always with Jamie, the beautiful design and down-to-earth writing style makes for a collection of craveable recipes. Definitely leaning towards vegetarian and not vegan (though there are some vegan recipes here). I can’t wait to try sooooo many of these veggie focused dishes.

    There's some appealing recipes here, the first few in the book, I felt had a bit of a 70s vibe to them, weirdly. The pasta recipes all sound delicious though. Unfortunately from my view point, most recipes have a long list of ingredients and can be quite complicated. That said, I'm sure there's much to enjoy here.

    This is my new favourite cook book. I've been veggie for over 30 years, and didn't think there would be much new, but this book is great. The recipes are clear and straightforward, and work really well. The allotment garden pie is our new best family meal. So many recipes would please all the family, and I think they are easy to do. Recommended.

    Excellent book. I'm no vegan or vegetarian, I love steak too much, but I've had this preordered since March. Most of the recipes are pretty simple and offer suggestions on how to vary the veggies used depending on season etc. Beautiful photos to accompany each recipe along with an easy to read ingredient list. I've already tried the spinach quiche with soup and thoroughly enjoyed it. I even gave some to a meat eater who described it as delicious and didn't remark on the lack of meat in the dish.

But I do plan on having a nice Sunday roast the weekend. While I won't be tempted to turn vegan this book has certainly encouraged me to create more healthy, nutritious dishes along with using up more vegetables in my kitchen. There really is something for everyone in this book. We'll done Jamie on another fantastic addition to a superb range of easy to follow, fun and exciting cookery books.

    I’m enjoying looking through Jamie’s new Veg cook book and trying out the recipes. I only wish he would be a bit more precise with his ingredients. For example, put the weight of the veg instead of just saying‘two large leeks’ add ‘approximately 450 grams’. Leeks, in fact all veg vary hugely in size and weight and this impacts on a recipe. But perhaps it’s just not his style...?

    Some good ideas but disappointed that he seems to have left the two previous books super foods healthy concepts to make rather stodgy heavy meals that often seem too heavy for today’s lifestyle. Granted vegetables but so much starch added! Having said that, there are many good combinations, ideas and recipes. But I’ll happily avoid the potatoes /rices /fillers....

    read through half so far, lots I want to try, very clear recipes and instructions, all with nutrition,timings and portions info and lovely photos so a pretty useful cookbook I think so far and uses all sorts of veg.

    I really like Jamie, I love his cookbooks and this one is no exception. 1) the recipe is on one page 2) the photos are great 3) ethnic recipes sound easy to make. I will be making Cauliflower Tikka Masala, Onion Soup, Chopped Fattoush Salad and the Congee. YUM
