I got a new cookbook. In fact, I got the all new Jamie Oliver Meals in Minutes cookbook!!!!!!! And I’m over the moon.
It’s a fantastic book with, as always, brilliant pictures. It is put together in a super unique way to. Rather then flipping through different meat, veg, salad, dessert sections and peicing together your own meal, all the recipes make up entire meals. The instructions are also laid out so by the time you are finished cooking, your entire meal is ready, hot and on the table (including mouth watering simple desserts and unique refreshing beverages!)
The book also includes fantastic advice on kitchen prep, a well-compiled list of kitchen musts, helpful hints on presentation, and always encouraging words on shopping for meat, eggs, poultry and fish. A ton of recipes also include instructional videos when you go to the website!
I don’t know where to start with this one so I have decided it’s going to be a start from the first meal and work my way through, sort of deal.
My first Meal in Minutes?
Broccoli orecchiette, zucchini & bocconcini salad, and prosciutto & melon salad!
Now, I want to say right now, it’s not all good news for Mr. Oliver. His book, although being “the fastest-selling non-fiction title of the year,” has been under fire. People are claiming that his meals are taking longer than 30minutes, sometimes up to an hour and a half. I love Jamie and so far, with the 6 Jamie Oliver cookbooks I own, the times I have been disappointed have been few and far between. So as well as cooking each and every meal in this book. I plan on posting the results to you as well as the total time it took me.
So if you aren’t sold on Meals in Minutes or if you just like spending time with me, keep reading The Supper Club!
And if you’re hungry, come over to my house.. there will be a meal waiting.
