This is Jamie's most accessible book yet and is suitable for all ages and skill levels - once you start cooking this way, not only will you love it; you'll never look back.

    Comments about Jamie's 15 Minute Meals:

    I love the book, I pick one recipe a week to try new things, and it's so quicky so I can have it after work. But sometimes the instructions are a bit loose, which is not great when you are not a good cook, and normally it takes more than 15 minutes...

                I have made delicious food, without breaking my budget, my brain-power or my self esteem.
                The recipes are also great jumping grounds to experiment a little and mesh recipes together or what not.
