“Whether you’re an experienced chef or a beginner, this book will help you succeed.

I’m convinced that if you adopt my method, it will change the way you cook forever. The most revolutionary thing about these meals is not that they can be made quickly (although that is true) or even that the recipes contain lots of tricks and tips (also true), but that I present them in a completely original way, guiding you step-by-step through the creation of a complete meal. In just 30 minutes, you can make a main dish with all the trimmings, a starter, a dessert and even a beverage, all homemade. I have created 50 great meals for you, including meat and vegetarian dishes, pasta recipes, quick desserts and savoury curries, as well as other dishes you would never have imagined could be made in so little time.

This book will help you prepare meals for your family quickly and with style. You will learn to use your kitchen in a completely new, fun way, and will be amazed at the results.” – Jamie Oliver
