5.0 out of 5 stars YouTube videos for 30 minute meals, January 9, 2012
By 
This review is from: Jamie Oliver's Meals in Minutes: A Revolutionary Approach to Cooking Good Food Fast (Hardcover)
The YouTube videos are also amazing! They inspired my wife and I to buy the book.
Normally she would be the cook as I had not been anything but a disaster in the kitchen, but seeing how easy Jamie made things caused the juices to start flowing and voila!....30 minute meals came of age in our kitchen. And yes, after about 3 goes at any one meal, the 30 mins is quite achievable! The secret is to have everything ready before you start, just as he says on the videos.
Here's a link to the first 1/2 of the 1st video...Just go to YouTube and search for Jamie's 30 Minute Meals - S01E01 - Piri Piri Chicken. You can paste that link in to SaveVID and download the MP4 file to your laptop to watch in iTunes.

The quality is pretty good, but a DVD would be better. I'm not sure why you can't buy a DVD yet of the series....

Anyway, the recipes are gr8! We (my wife) normally uses 4 or 5 recipes from a cook book, but this time we (and yes, that's including yours truly who couldn't cook!) have done every recipe! And some 4 or 5 times now!
The Steak Sarnie is aaaamzing!!

This guy is really good!
Cheers,
John Bradshaw

Hello JB!

I am as impressed as you two seem to be. I live with my husband who I married 3 years ago but we never have my family over If my dad has visited 5 times in 3 years it may be too much, the sad truth is we live in the same city but we mostly go to his place. Anyway, I bought it a month ago and the whole concept of having the complete meal instructions in one page was so mind blowing to me that I thought I'd finally be able to cook an entire meal in a short amount of time. So I started to invite my family over for dinner every Tuesday to cook one of the meals and it has become an instant tradition. My mother immediately stole the book and she has now Thursdays to cook another recipe the same way. My dad even commented to my other 3 siblings that they should take the rest of days of the week so we could dine like this everyday.

I still haven't done any meals in 30 minutes, but I don't care. One hour in the kitchen is perfectly fine by me and I get to eat delicious nutritiuos meals.
Thanks for sharing your story, I loved it!

Gr8 news! Thx Michelle
And don't forget the other really simple, quick recipes Jamie has with his Ministry of Food.
There are videos for these too. My two personal faves are Salmon Tikka and Chicken Chow Mien. They are 15 mins each and deeeeelicious! Just type in to Google..... jamie oliver salmon tikka
