Jamie’s 15-Minute Meals

Written by

Jamie Oliver


27 September 2012

Who’s the author? Jamie Oliver, the nation’s most famous Essex boy, has been teaching us how to cook since 1999.

What’s it about? 15-Minute Meals is Jamie’s simplest and most straightforward book yet. It pushes the concept of fast, everyday food to a new level, without compromising on flavour. It’s designed to excite and inspire people to prepare a balanced, nutritional, no-nonsense meal every night of the week.

Recipes we love: Sticky Kicking Chicken, Watermelon Radish Salad and Crunchy NoodlesSteak Medallions, Mushroom Sauce and Spring Greens and Pasta Pesto, Garlic and Rosemary Chicken.

It’s a good book for: People who are short on time and looking for something quick, easy and delicious to throw together in a matter of minutes.

You’ll like it if: You’re a fan of Jamie’s usual big bold flavours, no-fuss methods and time saving tips. It covers everything from homely British dishes, to Mediterranean family staples as well as Thai, Chinese and Indian-inspired dishes. The layouts are simple and easy to follow, and the punchy titles will grab you as you flick through.

Jamie says: “Ultimately, 15-Minute Meals is a frame of mind, and I think if you give it a proper go you’ll really get into it. It’s fun, dynamic, no-nonsense cooking. Yes, the first couple of times you cook a recipe it might take a little longer, but that’s OK, it’s not a race. This is incredible food, cooked ridiculously quickly, and I’ve done all the thinking for you.
