The book is well laid out and beautiful. The recipes are easy to follow (much easier than in the 30 min meals book which I felt jumped about a bit and had to read each recipe about 10 times!). The ingredients and flavours are ‘my kind of food’ and I have enjoyed everything I’ve made so far. One of the winners for me is the coconut rice which is now a firm favourite with other dishes. I really like how Jamie takes something kind of ordinary and already on my repertoire (e.g. chill) and then totally lifts it for example by serving with lemon bulger wheat and more interesting complex flavours in the chill.
If you are on a tight budget this probably isn't the book for you – need a lot of super tasty extras, lots of veg and nice cuts of meat/fish etc and Jamie makes use of packs of ready prepared lentils and stuff which are more expensive (obviously) than making you own.
Overall, love the book and it has got LOADS of recipes in to try.
Negatives (apart from the slight cooking time fib) are: making these meals turns our kitchen into a bombsite which needs another 15 minutes of dedicated cleaning, also our shopping bill goes up noticeably when we have a few of these in the weeks menus.
Even with all that though - almost every meal is a delight to eat, can't even take a star off.
I am not a fan of how much Jamie uses lemon and vinegar in food, but that is personal taste and I found it easy to adapt some of the recipes to my family's taste.
All in all the flavours are fantastic and the dishes are healthy. We already have a few favourites I've made quite a few times, both my family and a a few guests have benefitted and comment in how good the dishes are.
The only watch out from me is be prepared for quite a bit more mess than your standard weekday meal. It definitely pays to work tidy like a true chef and have a dishwasher handy with so many pots, pans and utensils in play.
Well written, beautifully illustrated and full of info a must for anyone who likes to make their own food or any fan of Mr Oliver.
