Jamie's Italian - A real treat........

As a treat, work took us to Jamie Oliver's new restaurant in Brighton, Jamie's Italian.
I am a great follower of Jamie Oliver, he makes cooking so simple yet delicious & always shows such passion in what he's doing.

I was very excited about going and sampling the menu, as there was 18 of us it meant I could see and try many of dishes.

We started with the Seasonal Meat Antipasti Plank, which included Seasonal cured meat, Tuscan fennel salami, pistachio mortadella, San Daniele prosciutto and a guest meat, Italian cheeses, buffalo mozzarella, pecorino with amazing chilli jam.
Pickles, curly green chillies, green and black olives Salad, Italian coleslaw with lemon and mint.

And Vegetable Antipasti Plank which included Seasonal vegetables, sliced, char grilled and marinated. Italian cheeses, buffalo mozzarella, pecorino with amazing chilli jam.
Pickles, curly green chillies, green and black olives. Salad, Italian coleslaw with lemon and mint which are placed on the table on top of tins of tomatoes so they are high enough for people to share. Baskets of assorted fresh bread.
Then for my main course I ordered Char Grilled Chop Steak Beef Burger and Funky Chips. Yummy!!

It was enormous! and came on a really cute wooden chopping board and the chips came in a paper cone. All the food was lovely.
Needless to say I couldn't manage desert, so I had mint tea instead which came in a lovely iron tea pot.
I would highly recommend Jamie's Italian in Brighton, we all had a wonderful time and the food, service & surrounding were great xx
