Following on from Nigel Slater's "Real Fast Food", "The 30-minute Cook" delves further into ethnic and classic ideas suitable for those who like their food fast and without fuss, but who also want to eat imaginatively. "The 30-minute Cook" gives quick versions of popular European classics like porc au Pruneau, quick coq au vin, saltimbocca and salmon with pesto, but concentrates strongly on ethnic cuisine with recipes for 10-minute Thai chicken with lemon grass and chillies, twenty fast ideas for filling tacos, quick vegetable koftas and, of course, many Chinese stir-fries. This is the book for those who want to recreate the food they have eaten on their travels, but find most recipes offputtingly complicated and the ready-made meals in the supermarkets bland and dull in comparison. Despite the prevalence of ethnic recipes, none contains any ingredient that is not stocked by the majority of supermarkets and greengrocers. Almost all the recipes are suited to those who have time only to buy one or two ingredients on the way home, with much of the rest being in the average kitchen storecupboard.

Review:

Let Nigel Slater give new meaning to the phrase "fast food" with The 30-Minute Cook. In previous books such as Real Fast Food and Real Fast Desserts, he blazed a trail for quick preparation of European cuisine; in this third volume, he tackles the rest of the world, still in 30 minutes or less. Consider dining tonight on Indian Spiced Lentils, Camembert Baked in Pastry, or Persian Lamb Kebabs--and still have time to read the kids a bedtime story or work on that novel you've been meaning to finish. Slater's basic premise is that everybody has to eat, and there's no reason why we can't all eat well in the same amount of time it would take to heat up a TV dinner or order a pizza. So if you've got a hankering for Moroccan Chicken or Grilled Prawns in Yogurt and Lime, let The 30-Minute Cook help you get dinner on the table with plenty of time to spare.
