    Default Jamie Oliver 15 or 30 minute cookbook

    I got the 30 minute meals one and didn't like the layout, they do entree to dessert from memory all on one page layout. After I bought it I never used it. But my sister got the 15 min one and said it was traditional layout and loves it.

    I haven't seen the 15 minute cookbook but we have the 30 minute, and I love it. It's difficult to read but all of our Jamie books are difficult, so I'm used to it. I just love the food!

    We have 30 minutes, DP loves cooking from that one I haven't got 15 minutes though, but the show is on tv and the food looks great too. Keep in mind that 30 minutes serves a few people and is 3 course so depends on what kinds of meals he'd prefer. Fairly sure 15 minutes is just one meal.

    I've asked for the 15 minute. It's hard to get a copy they are selling more than the 30 min

    Are the ingredients as hard to source and obscure as the usual Jamie Oliver books?

    Yeah, I'd go the 15. From the looks if the tv show, they will take about 30-40 mins to prepare. And my friends with the 30 min one say those ones take an hour.

    This ^^

    In reality the 15 or 30 mins assumes you know what you're doing and have everything ready to go! So if after quick meals I'd go the 15, as its a min of 30-40 anyway usually.

    I don't find that at all?
    I brought the 15 min one for my brother as he loves the 30 min one as do I, I find I can easily do most of his meals in 30 min
