“Together is a real homage to the great home feast, something I have really missed sharing with friends and family over the past year. So many people find real joy in a shared meal, have rediscovered a love of cooking or perhaps even given it a go for the first time. So this book is all about arming readers with easy recipes for dinner parties, celebrations, special occasions, or just a good old get together with their nearest and dearest. I wanted the recipes to feel like a culinary light at the end of the tunnel, where food can be enjoyed and savoured. This is about giving you an excuse to get the people you love around the table again.” Jamie Oliver
With 130 brand new recipes, each chapter features a complete menu which can be attempted in full, or dipped into and mixed-up depending on personal tastes and preferences. Chapters are inspired by occasions and seasons, such as Autumnal Fare which is perfect for a Halloween get-together, Picnic Love for balmy afternoons with the family, and Brunch Party for lazy weekend mornings with friends.
With recipe methods broken down into ‘Get Ahead’, ‘On the Day’ and ‘To Serve’, Jamie has done all of the planning, so readers can really enjoy the precious time they have with their guests. Whether cooking for two or fourteen people, the book offers something for everyone, including tips on adapting recipes for vegetarian and vegan guests, as well as visual inspiration for table dressing and styling. Each chapter is also introduced with an ‘Instagrammable’ menu page, outlining details of the meal, which can be snapped and shared with guests ahead of the day to really get their mouths watering.
