Which Jamie?

lilgi | Apr 20, 2011 05:07 PM

I recently had a chance to browse through a few cookbooks to find a gift for my 16 year old son. I've narrowed it down to "Jamie at Home" and "Cook with Jamie". I think he would love either one, but didn't have a chance to look at either in depth and have to place an order soon.

I liked "Cook with Jamie" as more of a teaching tool. This will be his first "real" cookbook and to get him started he'll be cooking by my side as he has very basic kitchen skills.

What I loved about "Jamie at Home" was the beauty of this book, and S loves anything done in good taste. The photography and Jamie's appreciation for his garden really come through and the book is absolutely inspiring. I get the impression it may have easy recipes to follow as well.

I look forward to reading your opinions on either one and hopefully get more of an idea how the recipes might differ from one book to another. I had a chance to read one of the threads on these 2 books but I didn't really get the info I needed. I'd love to get both for him, but only one for now.
