The meals are all really well balance and you always end up with lots of tasty things on your plate which taste amazing on their own, but even better together.
The recipes are laid out really cleverly so that they are in task order to help you get them done as quick as possible.
My best tip for these recipes is to get everything you need - ingredients and equipment - out and organised by each part of the dish.
The first time you to these recipes you won't get them done in 30 mins, but once you've done them a couple of times you'll get in the swing and nearer to the 30 min mark.
I highly recommend the mushroom risotto and the greek chicken. Yum!
I would say that I am a experienced cook and able to cook different cuisine, but this book surprised me. There is a wide range of different recipes so the book has been great in inspiring me to cook new dishes that I would normally not consider.
The instructions are very clear and simple. My husband who doesn't usually cook found it very easy to follow the recipes.
In order to keep to the timings of the recipes, it is important to have a food processor. I had to got out and buy one - makes all the difference if you want to follow all the recipes and keep it close to the 30 min.
Do yourself a favour and buy the book - it's suitable for novices as well as experienced cooks.
Jamie's rustic approach to presentation will not appeal to those who want their food to look like works of art, In the same way, his ad hoc measuring of ingredients will not appeal to those who like the precision of cooks like Delia Smith. Jamie's approach is geared to fast prep and having the food on the table ready to eat in double quick time.
The test of food is ultimately about the taste and here Jamie scores high with big flavours and textures in his dishes. His dishes are also low in calories, healthy and nutritious which is what we need for every day meals. If you want lots of red meat and rich sauces then you need to look elsewhere.
PS. If you want to try a British detective who enjoys food here's one: The Cleansing (DCI Tom Caton Manchester Crime Novels)
This book is great. Its crammed full of easy to do (maybe not everyone will agree with this statement) recipes which are all under 30 mins. Great when you want something tasty in a short space of time. There are beautiful pictures showing you the preparation and once the dish has completed. My wife has found the recipes themselves easy to follow albeit sometimes this can be more than 30 minutes. Having said all that - once you have done them several times, you can quickly up the pace. The book offers a varied selection across 50 recipes and there is something in there for everyone. At £13, a great buy.
