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.
