I got this book last week and haven't put it down yet. The recipes are easy to follow, step by step, and dinner just falls into place. Well explained and ingredients are easily available. It's wonderful to make such great dinners in 30 ish minutes, and I know I am eating good fast food. Am buying this book for my son and his girlfriend. It really is a must have for busy households.

  Amazing!

Such an easy to follow, basic book. Great for those comfy in a kitchen or those who aren't so sure... I find some of the recipes are now household faves. Great book!

I have not got down to 30 mins yet but I am getting closer each time.
One of the best cookery books I have bought and you dont have to be great at cooking to follow it.
Tomato soup is the best

  Jamie's 30 minute meals

| | See all Goosegob's reviews (2)

Just had this book bought for me and so, so far only made 1 recipe - the Jools Pasta - as i don't have a lot of the equipment Jamie uses in his kitchen i have obviously improvised and chopped by hand when he has used the processor. However, getting everything ready beforehand helped and it wasn't that much over 30 minutes that the meal was ready. It really is step by step and easy to follow and without being 'patronizing' too. A great book with loads of great meals that you can swap and change to suit yourself.

This is a lovely and easy book to follow, great pics, and the meals can be changed around. I can't believe the bad press and people that have been saying its taking them about an hour, I'm not a chef, but I get everything ready beforehand, as Jamie keeps saying, maybe if you are not a very experienced cook then this may not be the book for you, but I have completed them in the 30mins, hardly any chopping involved, but if there is then use the processor!

The only thing I would hold back on is the amount of chillis which seem to be in nearly every recipe.

  absolutely amazing!!!!

| | See all sammie1989's reviews (21)

Any one could make these 30 minute meals they are that easy. My favourite is the killer jerk chicken rice beans with a refreshing chopped salad char-grilled corn which did take 30 minutes and tastes absolutely amazing. every one who has tried the food which i have done can't praise it enough. The only bad point is that it looks more complicated than it is.

The only cookery book i've ever bought and actually used. It does take a few attempts before you get down to 30mins but it doesn't matter.
The chicken pie is indeed amazing and the tomato soup is out of this world.
I recommend this book to everyone its fab!

  Awesome

This is a really easy book to follow and makes recipes simple to follow. Once you get the hang of them it'll take 30 minutes, but needs some getting used to, I I can do it, anyone can.

i bought this book having watched some of the series and because I'm a busy working mum with a young child. I thought it would be great to knock up some of these recipes. The recipes are really good and very quick and easy to do. The chicken pie is yummy and went down very well with my family. I would recommend this book.

  Jamie on form

This is Jamie on top form. Very easy to follow and some fantastic tips and ideas for quick dinners - liked the tip for quick berry ice-cream. I've made that a few times already. Tastes great and stupidly quick and easy to do! Brilliant practical cookbook.
