5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous!, October 29, 2011
This review is from: Jamie Oliver's Meals in Minutes: A Revolutionary Approach to Cooking Good Food Fast (Hardcover)
I began watching Jamie's Meals in Minutes and soon after bought the book. The book and the show are great. I cook a lot at home and wanted to expand my recipe selection without breaking the budget or investing a lot of time on the weekends. I have made several meals already and everyone has said the food is great. I agree that the timing isn't exactly "30 minutes" but then these are new recipes for me, so after a few times I am sure they'll take less time. I'm also not a professional chef... so, yes, it takes us lay-folk longer. The recipes provide a process to maximize timing. I like also that I can mix and match with the sides and desserts.

I wish there were other chefs who had a show and book that were the same. It's an excellent way to use both mediums. Jamie also has a 'down-to-earth' attitude and sense of humour. He dosen't talk down to his viewers/readers. Better buy a lot of olive oil. He puts it on almost everything! LOL

I have never had a problem with 'bitter olive oil'. I use cold 1st pressed olive oil. I have had all sorts of kinds of olive oil from Italy and Greece and they all taste slightly different and go well with various types of food. My comment about liberal amounts of olive oil on Jamie's show was a bit of a tongue-in-cheek joke... that, I guess was missed.
