After a year in the writing and a lifetime in the making, Jamie's Comfort Food has arrived!

The book is all about food that puts a smile on your face - whether it's hours in the kitchen making the ultimate lasagne, cooking an insane burger on the barbecue with some friends, or a reviving ramen when you're feeling down. Inspired by everything from childhood memories to the changing of the seasons, and taking into account the guilty pleasures and sweet indulgences that everyone enjoys, it's brimming with 100 exciting recipes that you'll fall in love with. We may be biased, but it might just be Jamie's best book yet.

And Food Tube has been lucky enough to host a couple of Jamie's must-know kitchen tricks!

Gennaro steps in to show you how to make a variety of pasta shapes at home. Fresh, rich, satisfying and surprisingly simple to make.

Jamie's mate Pete shows you step by step how to prepare lobster, should you want to give Jamie's ultimate Mac 'n' Cheese a go! You really must. It's outrageously good.

And Kerryann Dunlop is back with Jamie's Chicken Kiev recipe to make your mouth water. Succulent chicken breasts stuffed with crispy bacon, garlic and parsley butter and coated in golden breadcrumbs - this is a dish the whole family will love.

But as much as we love to give you a culinary cuddle, we know that your first cuppa tea in the morning or your favourite cocktail on a Friday night can bring you great joy too! Drinks Tube has an awesome array of drinkable delights such as cold brew coffee!

What is cold brew coffee? It's a new way to make coffee and it's taking the world by storm. In this video the brilliant Mike Cooper tells you exactly what it is and how you can (and why you should!) make cold brew coffee at home.

Karis is back with another alcoholic ice lolly recipe that's for adults only! This one blends up a hoppy pale ale with some fresh blackberries for a really fruity flavour. Give it a try on a sunny day and when it gets too cold outside - eat them inside instead!
