Save with Jamie: Shop Smart, Cook Clever, Waste Less and Jamie’s 15-Minute Meals (published last year in the U.K.) will be released this fall. Two unnamed titles will be published in 2014 and 2015.

In a press release, Jamie Oliver says, HarperCollins Canada have been the most incredible publishing partners for the last six years, and [publicity director] Rob Firing in particular has made my Canadian experience a real treat. I’m really excited that we’ve now gone from partner to full-on publisher and I’m over the moon that they will be publishing my next four books in Canada. I really love working over there and hope to spend more time out there in the years to come.

Other HarperCollins Canada celebrity cookbook authors include Mario Batali, Laura Calder, and Emeril Lagasse.
