Jamie Oliver's bestselling book for busy people

Are you tired of cooking the same old dishes or having to get yet another takeaway? Do you need some fresh, quick and easy meal ideas for all the family after a hard day?

Jamies 30 Minute Meals is a bestseller for good reason! It is another of Jamie's attempts at persuading us to get back to home cooking in an age where fast food has become the norm for many families, especially for those of us who despair that we don't have the time to stand in a kitchen for hours on end. Jamie Oliver won us over when he brought back healthy school dinners for our children by showing how it could be done by going there and doing it himself. He convinced the right people that our children can eat healthy, economical and tasty meals. This book meets the demands of busy people, who need something quick and easy to put on the family table each day. It includes recipes such as "steak indian style", "mustard chicken", "spring lamb" and "tapas feast." With appealing pictures and clear methods, he shows us how it can be done with seasonal food and a bit of organization in the kitchen.

      Jamie definitely has helped to revolutionise some people's menus. We eat fresh food most of the time and love vegetables. Preparation and peeling is no problem, and fresh food tastes so much better. We went to one of Jamie's restaurants in April, and it was ok but we have had better. It was definitely buzzing in there.
