This book changed how I cook.
This is a great book for anyone, not just the busy professional. Wonderfully detailed photographs, and Jamie's typical humorous style make for fun reading.
Because? Because you have to get all your prep work done in advance. The actual cooking time DOES become roughly half an hour, and when when the meal is ready to plate...all the recipes I've tried have been excellent.
Go ahead, fire up the oven to Full Whack, as he calls it. Get the kettle boiling, assemble the food processor, wash the salad fixings, and the veg too, if need be. And have at it.
Darned good eating, but be prepared to put in a half hour of prep time (the oven probably takes 20 minutes to reach Full Whack, right?)
From this book you'll learn lovely menu options, and just as important the theory and practicality of "Mis En Place!"
Some of the expressions are cute in his british way.
