Jamie's 15 Minute Meals TX: 22 Oct 2012, Week 43


Jamie Oliver returns to Channel 4 with Jamie's 15 Minute Meals - a brand-new cookery series, starting on October 22nd - that pushes the concept of fast, everyday food to the next level.

Building on the phenomenal success of Jamie's 30 Minute Meals, this new series of forty programmes squeezes the cooking process even further, with each half hour episode featuring two delicious, nutritious, super-fast family meals back-to-back!

As well as speeding things up, Jamie has also focused on reducing the calorie content of the dishes so that viewers can confidently serve a nutritionally balanced meal to their family every day of the week. The shows aim to inspire and excite viewers and show them just what they can achieve in a small amount of time, with a few clever ideas.

In his trademark down-to-earth style Jamie takes the audience through the dishes in real time, with ingredients easily available from supermarkets, using some key kitchen equipment and offering plenty of hints and tricks to help the aspiring home cook get something to the table that's a cut above your average mid-week fare.

Jamie continues to feature homely British and Mediterranean family staples, but he'll also be drawing more inspiration from Asia, including Thai, Indian and Chinese ideas, to bring some exciting new flavours to the family table.

"We all want food that's healthy, gorgeous and super quick, so I'm going to show you a whole new way to cook - amazing meals that you can do in just fifteen minutes, time saving tricks and multi-tasking to the max, you can create magic in the kitchen!" says Jamie.

"We're talking big flavours, fast. And these are great meals without the guilt - balanced, tasty and good for you - food that you can eat every day. It's delicious, nutritious super-fast food. If you think you haven't got time to cook, then think again!"

Jamie's 15 Minute Meals is made by Fresh One Productions. 40 x 30 min programmes, will air on Channel 4, starting on Monday, October 22nd at 5.00pm. The series is accompanied by a new book published by Penguin.
