Jamie's 15 minute meals
It's being aired on Channel 4. Have any watched this and what's your opinion? Jamie is a celebrity chef who I have no particular feeling for. I've cooked some of his recipes and it's good but not outstanding.
I really like Jamie's cooking style. Not too fussy. Good basic dishes. Once in a white he throws in an excellent tip. The new show is well worth watching IMO.
I didn't see the show yet, it takes a while to get to Canada. But I have the book. I tried around 6-7 dishes already and LOVE it. I have every single one of his books and this one ranks already very high.
I don't think I can do the dishes in 15 minutes yet but I am sure it will be faster after a few tries. They are simple, quick and tasty.
My favorite so far? Ricotta fritters, lamb meatballs and the pork in Hungarian sauce.
I wish we could see this show in the U.S. We appear to be blocked, or whatever. I have the book on its way from the UK right now.
Josey, some of us have been discussing the recipes from the book in this thread on Home Cooking. We'd love it if you jumped in on the discussion with the recipes you've tried.
I suspect that, like his 30 minute ones, he will come in for criticism from people who have not been able to do it in the time. I'm enjoying the programme and think there's some good quick meals there, even though it might take longer. Food looks seems more enjoyable and less contrived than the 30 minute ones.
I'm also enjoying his occasional innuendo remarks which may not always be obvious to foreigners unused to our slang.
