Sharing a glimpse at the cover and a behind-the-scenes glimpse at filming the TV series, Jamie wrote: "Exciting news guys!! My new Friday Night Feast cookbook is out on the 15th November. It’s what I like to think of the greatest hits of weekend cooking, with some of my absolute favourite recipes from the last six years of the show."

No doubt the book will be a hit with his fans, and ideal for him to prepare feasts for wife Jools and their five children. Jamie has also been teaching his children how to cook, and recently gave his eight-year-old son Buddy a lesson in making fresh pasta.

The chef said he was "proud" of the project

The proud dad showcased the father-son cooking lesson in a series of Instagram photos on Saturday, showing Buddy trimming the edges of the neat ravioli parcels. "Ravioli time Buddy! Teaching my little boy the joy of making these beauties tonight. I made a filling of slow cooked fennel, with prawns, tuna, capers and fennel herb. Served with a simple fresh tomato sauce, delicious. I try and make fresh pasta every other week, kids find it really fun which is always a good thing," Jamie wrote.
