Maybe Jamie is ok, after all - but please don't treat me like a child.
BUT... I really enjoyed Jamie's 15 minute meals series and bought the book cos I found during every episode I was making copious notes. The book was so good I gave it to 2 of my sons and a third will get it as a house warming pressie.
So this week I tried two of the recipes and I have to say they are lovely; really really delicious.I adapted them - leaving out stuff we don't like.
camembert, chives, walnuts, lemon juice whizzed in the blender and wrapped in a sheet of filo, a smear of olive oil all over the parcel and dry fried. Yum served with homemade soup.
tear 2 chorizo style sausages with some of your usual sausage - take the skin off first and just tear away the contents and dry fry. Add a glass of red wine and a tin of tomatoes. Add cooked gnocchi.
I served this with shredded cabbage with a fried mix of fried onion, bacon and walnuts. FAB!
Many more recipes from the book are available online.
I like the recipes because so many lovely salads are included and you can easily mix and match the salads and recipes. Also I have come up with some ideas of my own which also tasted great but were inspired by this book.
Still not sure I like Jamie though - I feel too old at 49 to be told off when he's going off on one!!!!!!!
