"Lunch isn't just about refuelling after a busy morning – it should be something to look forward to and enjoy. I wanted to make lunchtimes really exciting, so my range takes inspiration from all over the world, with everything from British classics to Moroccan flatbreads. We've only used the very best ingredients to make sure everything is bursting with flavour and, because it's at Boots, one of our tasty, nutritious options is never too far away." - Jamie Oliver
FLAVOURSOME FOCACCIAS AND FLATBREADS
The Jamie Does Lunch range includes a tempting selection of focaccias, flatbreads and wraps for a taste sensation at lunchtime. Taking inspiration from the recent trend for street food, as well as influences from as far afield as Asia and America, Jamie has used vibrant ingredients that mean lunchtime will pack a flavoursome punch.
If you fancy something spicy, the Sweet Chilli Chicken Wrap combines Asian-inspired noodles with tasty water chestnuts. Or why not try a taste of New Orleans with the original muffaletta filled with mouth-watering Milano salami, prosciutto, picante cheese, pickled peppers, cauliflower, carrot and herbs.

SENSATIONAL SALADS & DIPS
If you fancy a healthy salad for lunch but are bored with the same-old same-old, look no further than the Jamie Does Lunch range of sensational salads and delicious dips.
Choose from three tasty varieties: You'll be in for a real treat with one of Jamie's favourites, the Empire Chicken Salad, taken from his recipe book and served in his restaurant, as well as a beautiful Beetroot and Feta Cheese Salad, or a simple Seaside Salmon Salad with smoked salmon, new potatoes and a tzatsiki dressing.
Each salad comes with a different dip or dressing to add texture and depth of flavour. In this short video Jamie tells us more about the ingredients in each salad and the importance of dressing the salad to maximise those fabulous flavours. They may be healthy, but they'll feel amazingly decadent. Find out more in these videos from Jamie himself.
AWESOME RETRO CLASSICS
If, like Jamie, you have fond memories of the time when prawn cocktails and pub ploughman's were in their heyday, you'll love this new range of traditionally-inspired sandwiches with a twist from Jamie Does Lunch, available exclusively from selected Boots stores.
They are classic sandwiches like you've never tasted before. For example, need something to set you up for the day? Jamie's Breakfast Buttie takes white batch bread and packs it with maple cured bacon, free range eggs and slow roasted tomatoes with thyme. It's topped off with blitzed baked beans. Now that's a full monty breakfast!
To whet your appetite further, watch this video to see these kings of sandwiches as Jamie takes us through a few of his favourites from the range. Warning: This video may leave you feeling ever so slightly ravenous!
Get in the festive spirit with these seasonal treats from Jamie Oliver. The new Jamie Does Lunch range includes a tasty Christmas Cracker sandwich that brings together all the best bits of a scrumptious Christmas feast. Turkey breast comes with all the trimmings - pork chipolatas with both bread and cranberry sauces, all encased in aromatic sage and onion farmhouse bread.
Christmas isn't Christmas without mince pies and mulled wine, so for a sweet treat, Jamie has combined the two. His Mini Mince Pies are dusted with mulled wine sugar for a sensational seasonal delight - they look, smell and taste absolutely divine.
Last, but definitely not least, it's Christmas pud, but not as we know it. Jamie has created a unique take on the traditional Christmas pudding, introducing Italian influences. This fruity Italian version of the traditional Christmas Day dessert is filled with all the classic ingredients of an Italian dessert including candied lemon, orange peel, almonds and Limoncello. The only question is, will you be able to wait a whole year before having another one?
There's also a Christmas Spiced Sponge Pudding, which is not just a tempting alternative to Christmas pudding, it's a delicious dessert any time! Indulge yourself with this steamed chocolate sponge packed full of orange zest, stem ginger, Christmas spices and then coated in Belgian chocolate.
If this has got you in the Christmas spirit, then let Jamie tell you more about what makes his festive favourites the luxurious lunchtime choice.
