This week in Train on Thursday a cookbook. These two ladies where swooning over Jamie's 15 Minute Meals cookbook, though I am not sure if they where that interested in the recipes or bought it for a whole different reason. As I like cookbooks I wondered if it would be something for me and looked it up when I got home.
I do not have any of Jamie Olivers cookbook or that of any other well known chef for that matter. I find that their recipes are presented in the really artistic way they do in a restaurant and if I cannot manage to get the food presented in the same way I feel as if it is not good. So I prefer the less fancy cookbooks and recipes where a plate looks normal.
This book is completely devoted to what we are asking for - super quick, tasty, nutritious food that you can eat everyday of the week.
In creating these recipes Jamie's made sure they're methodical, clever, sociable, fun, with beautiful food full of big flavours. It's a classic book that will arm you with the skills to create wonderful meals, shockingly fast.
He's taken inspiration from all over the world, embracing the tastes that we all love, playing on classic chicken, steak and pasta dishes, looking at Asian-inspired street food and brilliant Moroccan flavours, putting together great salads and so much more. And these are some of the quickest and easiest meals Jamie's ever done.
These recipes have been tested and tested to ensure that this book is a reliable companion for you and your family.
Jamie Oliver's 15-Minute Meals is far and away the most balanced and exciting everyday cookbook out there - and if you liked 30-Minute Meals, this will knock your socks off.
What does interest me in this cookbook though is the 15 minutes. I like easy recipes that do not take much of your time for weekdays. This means I might have to hunt this book down and see if I can cope with the images.
