Jamie’s 30-Minute Meals – Jamie Oliver

Jamie's 30 Minute MealsThere’s no stopping Jamie Oliver. The guy’s an inspiration. We love the enthusiasm he chucks into sharing his knowledge and experience. In his new book, Jamie’s 30-Minute Meals, he’s at it again. He shows you that by mastering a few kitchen tricks and being organized and focused, it’s not only absolutely possible, but also dead simple, to get a complete meal on the table in the time you’d normally spend cooking up just one dish.

The book contains 50 brand-new meal ideas, and as you’d expect from Jamie they’re all exciting, varied and seasonal. You’ll be amazed at what you’ll be able to achieve in half an hour – complete meals with main courses, side dishes as well as puddings and drinks; they’re all meals that you’ll feel well chuffed with when you serve them up to your family and friends. And, typically Jamie, they all include a salad or vegetable dish, so they’re balanced and healthy, too.

So, for dinner you could be having:
Tray baked chicken, squashed potatoes, creamed spinach, strawberry slushie
Tasty crusted cod, my mashy peas, tartare sauce, warm garden salad
Pork chops and crispy crackling, crushed potatoes, minty cabbage, peaches and custard
Trapani style rigatoni, griddled chicory salad, rocket and Parmesan salad, limoncello kinda trifle

The recipes are written in a way that’ll help you make the most of every single minute in the kitchen. This book’s practical, with lots of step-by-step pictures, inspires confidence, and shows that with a bit of preparation, the right equipment and some organization, delicious, hearty, quick meals are only half an hour away.

But, hey, why not let Jamie explain it to you?
