Jamie Oliver's Meals in Minutes

A Revolutionary Approach to Cooking Good Food Fast

Oliver's bold foray into 30-minute meals challenges busy families to trade their "heat-and-serve" dinner routines for one of 50 carefully choreographed multicourse menus. While each menu instructs readers to make multiple items concurrently, it is easy to pick out steps for individual dishes. These recipes are quick but not necessarily healthy or inexpensive, and readers will need an assortment of electric appliances to reap all the promised time savings. Loftus's beautiful photography may convince skeptics to get in the kitchen and try Oliver's intriguing concept. Highly recommended for busy, uncompromising foodies but less so for picky eaters.
