Jamie Oliver's 30 Minute Meals

I've recently got back into cooking and Jamie Oliver really inspires me, because he uses simple ideas and flavours that work. His 30 minute meal series was so innovative. I tried a couple of ideas from the programme and, although they took me longer than 30 minutes (lack of organisation more than anything!), were great successes. My mum bought me the book and my first recipe was Jamie's spinach and filo pie with cucumber and tomato salad (I didn't bother with the ice cream dessert seeing as we'd eaten Krispy Kreme doughnuts earlier in the day!!). It was amazing!! The sharpness of the vinegary dressing in the salad cut through the richness of the feta and eggs in the pie. It was also brilliant cold. Yum!!
