UNCOVER A HIDDEN GEM IN BATH Eagerly anticipated as the second of Jamie Oliver’s ground-breaking Italian restaurants when it opened in 2008, Jamie’s Italian Bath approaches its 10th birthday with optimism and a dynamic new team at the helm. Photographs by Ella Miller
recent refurbishment has given a new lease of life to Jamie’s Italian, especially on sunny days when one of the city’s best kept secrets – a suntrap roof terrace – offers the perfect spot for enjoying the new summer menu al fresco style. The new menu reflects Jamie Oliver’s long-standing commitment to impeccable sourcing and his passion for beautiful seasonal ingredients. The recipes are created with an eye on what’s fresh and healthy, but not forgetting the restaurant’s Italian heritage, inspired by Jamie’s mentor, Gennaro Contaldo, and pasta is freshly made on site, every day – using the Italian Godfather’s own recipe. A selection of hand-made sourdough pizzas was recently introduced to the menu after hundreds of requests from customers. By partnering with artisan producers in the UK and Italy, every pizza is topped with fantastic, lovingly sourced ingredients, including Westcombe Jacks cheese from Westcombe Dairy in Somerset and charcuterie from Cobble Lane Cured in London. The best quality at an affordable price makes these pizzas a highly competitive new addition to Bath’s established pizza scene. And if you’re a parent, you’ll love the hugely popular kids’ menu. It’s been created by Jamie to
look amazing and taste great and, most importantly, every dish on the kids’ menu packs a super-healthy punch. Check out Organic mini spaghetti & meatballs – served with secret-seven vegetable sauce that looks like a simple tomato sauce but is cram-packed full of goodness!
