A Few of Jamie Oliver’s Favorite Things

Mustard with a real kick.

Celeb chef and kids’ nutrition revolutionary, Jamie Oliver, has searched the United Kingdom for handmade, artisan food products to share with the rest of the world.

His hand-picked collection of condiments, cookies and teas — under the Jme label — is now available at Williams-Sonoma.

Recently, I got a chance to sample some of the products, many of which would make great holiday gifts and stocking stuffers.

Jamie Oliver's mustard is chunky and complex.

First up, Jme One Mean Mustard.

Don’t you just love the name?

It sure packs a punch with jalapeno, tumeric, paprika, dark brown sugar and white wine vinegar.

More like a mustard crossed with a chutney, it’s spicy, tangy, sweet, chunky and complex. One taste had me thinking of how great this would be slathered over grilled chicken.

An 8.3-ounce jar is $14.

Buttery, nutty cookies.

Next, Jme Nutty Pecan & Pumpkin Seed Biscuits. Made by London bakers, these shortbread cookies are extremely buttery and crunchy, with a distinct vanilla flavor. Made with Welsh butter, they’re studded with nuts and seeds for added contrast.

Two cookies have a total of 123 calories. A package of 12 is $9.95.

Raspberry jam made in small batches in the United Kingdom.

Finally, Jme Raspberry Jam, which is gluten free and contains no artificial flavors or colors.

The spoon-able jam is liquidy and loose, but firms up more once refrigerated. Barely tart, it tastes of fruit, not sugar.

A 1-pound jar is $14.95.

    I never would have considered mustard as a holiday gift, but you’re making me rethink that stance! This sounds so much better than the norm, it might be a worthy present indeed.

    I love Jamie Oliver! And I love mustard. I’m really into spicy sweet ones. Is this more sweet than spicy? The biscuits look great too. Problem is, I always end up buying these stocking stuffers for myself! ;-)

    I adore mustard, especially with roasted chicken. I will be heading over to Williams-Sonoma very, very soon.

    Whats odd is that these products are not available in the UK. Jamie has other products that are sold in the supermarkets here, but they are not as upmarket as the ones available in America. Strange isn’t it? I’d love to try those shortbread.
    *kisses* HH

    Single Guy Ben: I think the mustard has a good balance. It is definitely pungent, with a tang, a hint of sweetness and tingling heat that’s not overbearing.

    Make some mean chicken wings with that mean mustard (marinade) rub-a-dub-dub? I wonder if that works. ;p

    I have a secret crush on Jamie Oliver for sure. He’s adorable! These look tasty, and they add another excuse to visit Williams Sonoma. Love it!

    I actually like the sound of it being crossed with chutney. I actually like American mustard as it’s sweet and mild so I guess this caters to people in the US. English mustard is too fiery for me :P

    I’m fascinated by the mustard. The flavors sound fantastic. I have to find a jar!
