Before I begin, let me be honest.
There are two types of people in the world. Those who love Jamie Oliver and those who despise him.

Personally I love him. I find it difficult to read.
Each recipe reads less like a recipe and more like a schedule. Plus it will probably still take the half hour, because it is in doing all the bits together that you produce the most exciting meal and that you economise best on time.
Some of the ingredients are difficult to source. Part of the benefit of living in the UK when we were there, was the sheer volume of supermarkets. Some things like watercress are hard enough to find here, let alone prewashed and trimmed…and those frozen mango chunks? I would have to skip the Liver and Bacon though, even when it is cooked by Jamie….
I love the concept and you can actually get the meals done in 30 minutes, but they are 30 intense, concentrated minutes. Not thirty minutes with a toddler and a newborn!
Having said that, there are over 5 post-it notes of recipes that I want to cook, so if anyone wants to mind my kids so I can have some time alone with Jamie…just drop me a note! Buy the book here.
Jamie’s 30-Minute Meals by Jamie Oliver
My husband had to build an ikea bookshelf just to house all of my cookbooks. I make my own cheese, pasta, jam and icecream. We were given this book and the 15 minute meals book as Christmas gifts. Meanwhile I curse Jaime for all the vile four letter words I know, and then some.
I HATE these books. I agree with you, even on the bit about the ease of getting ingredients while living in the UK. I got the 30 minute meals from my husband for Christmas and while I like it and have made a few things, it always takes waaaay longer than 30 minutes.
Even if you do have all that stuff ready to go, you still need to do some prep work for some ingredients not everyone has some whiz bang garlic crusher that also peels garlic for you and what about all the washing up and stuff afterwards? And as you say, with a toddler wanting your attention every five minutes, not a chance of sticking to 30 minutes. I like Jamie and I like his books, but only for the recipes themselves, not for all the other bits that go along with them.

MamaBake the home of the group, big batch cooking mothers! By Kylie Archer Before I begin, let me be honest.

What do you think?
Do you love or not-so-love Jamie Oliver? Do you have all his cookbooks?
