Overview

I'm going to show you how to put a whole meal on the table in a matter of minutes! Not just one dish, a whole spread of beautiful things.

If, like me, you love food and have hungry mouths to feed when you get home after a long day, then allow me to let you in on a totally revolutionary new way of cooking. In this book I'm going to show you how to make a complete meal in the time you'd normally spend on one dish. What you'll be able to achieve in 30 minutes or less will absolutely blow your mind. It's certainly blown mine!

This is not about compromising on quality. It's about being organized, working fast, and using shortcuts and clever tricks to put insanely delicious plates of food on the table in no time. Each of the 50 meals inside has been carefully written so there's no messing about-just good, fast cooking. I've created complete menus of foods that go beautifully together and planned recipes in a really unique, easy-to-follow way. This kind of cooking is all about using every minute wisely, having fun, and reclaiming your kitchen for the job it was meant for.

You might think it can't be done, but I promise you it can. Have a look inside to see the sort of meals you're going to get. Once you start cooking this way, not only will you absolutely love it; you'll never look back.

Editorial Reviews

In the late nineties, Jamie Oliver burst into an era of formal super chefs like an exuberant party crasher. His informality and seemingly spontaneous improvisations made cooking an exciting experience open to us all. In Jamie Oliver's Meals in Minutes, he invites readers into the action with scores of recipes open to variations and all makeable within 30 minutes. And don't expect that the innovator once known as the Naked Chef has simmered down. The recipe names include Piri Piri Chicken, Rocket Salad, Quick Portuguese Tarts, Pregnant Jools's Pasta, Crunchy Chicory & Watercress Salad, and Coat Ice Cream.
