Restaurant of the week: Jamie’s Italian, Westfield

We went along to Jamie Oliver’s Italian in Westfield last week, to attend a pizza masterclass held by celebrity chef Gennaro Contaldo. The delicious six new artisan pizzas they’ve created for the new winter menu are rustic, super-tasty, and all with a distinctive Jamie Oliver touch, Oliver worked closely with Gennaro and his team at Jamie’s Italian to create the new mouth-watering pizzas. We had so much fun under Gennaro’s guidance at making our own version of the Gennaro spicy sausage, and below are a few snaps from the night.

Take the family along to a Jamie’s Italian for authentic dishes with impeccably sourced ingredients, and indulge in a pizza that really hits the spot! The new pizzas are, Truffle Shuffle, Julietta (named after his wife), Red Rocket, The Porkie, Gennaro’s spicy sausage, and Funghi.
