Jamie's Thirty Minute Meals pushes the concept of fast, everyday food to the next level. Efficiently squeezing the cooking process even further, each half hour episode covers a full, restaurant-level (yet easy) family meal solution. In addition, Jamie has focused on reducing the calorie content of the dishes so that the viewer can confidently serve a nutritionally balanced meal to their family every day of the week. The ambition of the show is to inspire and excite the viewer and show them just what they can achieve in a little amount of time, with a few clever ideas.
In his usual, trademark, down-to-earth style, Jamie will take the viewer through the dishes in a real time, with produce easily bought from supermarkets, using key kitchen equipment and offering hints and tricks to help the everyday home cook get something to the table that's a cut above your average mid-week fare. This series, Jamie will continue to supply homely British and Mediterranean family staples, but he'll also be drawing more inspiration from Asia including Thai, Indian and Chinese ideas, to uplift the household repertoire and offer some new notes and nuances to the family palate.
