This is one of my favorite books of Jamie's. Recipes are quick to make, have tonnes of flavor, and are good for you. What more could you want? It is really easy to swap out ingredients if that is an issue. If you don't eat lamb, swap it out for pork or chicken. If there is a fish or type of seafood you don't normally eat, just swap it out for one that you like.

I looked forward to reading this book and trying out some recipes. But I found that there were a number of ingredients that I would never use again and a lot of the recipes were not to our taste. Also, I don't have a food processor and don't need one, but for some of the recipes you seem to need one.
However,Jamie has some interesting ideas and I would use some of the recipes just for inspiration.

I was disappointed by this book. I expect the meals are only 15 minutes with a bit of practice, but most of them are spicy and I don't enjoy spicy hot food. That, of course, is personal to everyone, but I had hoped for tips on adding flavour to non-spicy food. I also was a little appalled by his list of kitchen equipment - maybe food processors are cheap in the UK, but they're not here. However, to me the final straw was coming across a recipe that had truffle oil as an ingredient. Jamie, Jamie, Jamie. Truffle oil is not a standard part of the everyman's (or everywoman's) pantry!

Having said all that, my dislikes are a matter of personal preference and circumstance. The book itself is well put together - and you can always skip recipes with truffle oil!

You know, Jamie just might be a hero-revolutionary of cooking for our times. He is known for using unusual combinations of ingredients, yet none are off-putting or bizzare. Like, yam and shredded cheddar. Now that's a tasty, filling side dish that I'd never heard of before. It's now one of my go-to dishes. Excellent book.
