I’ve had loads of cool apps on my iPhone over the past year so getting to create one of my own has been so much fun. This app of mine is going to help you shop for, prepare and cook all sorts of really tasty meals at home.
I’ve written 50 brand new recipes for this and each one takes about 20 minutes to get on the table. The recipes are broken into really easy steps with step-by-step photos so you really can’t go wrong!
There’s also over an hour and a quarter worth of video clips of me covering off loads of really useful kitchen skills from sharpening a knife to chopping an onion. So download it and get cooking!

Expensive app! However.....
By: Bennat - 19-Oct-2009
Ok never written a review however I thought I felt I should for this app. £4.99 is a lot of money! However so is a jamie Oliver cook book!!If as jamie states in his videos there are updates to this app with new recipies you simply can't go wrong!I have wandered around supermarkets so many times wondering "what shall I cook" and now I find a dinner add the ingredients to the list, tick them off as I go and then cook! I'm learning tricks and hints and if like me and my wife your a young professional couple with no time but love tasty funky cooking this simply is the MUST HAVE APP!!! Please new recipies and ideas on future updates!! Thanks jamie shaw your making a fortune on this one!

This app is changing my life. I've always wanted to cook well but never had the confidence to do it. The simple lay out & easy shopping list for ingredients make it well worth the money IMO. I've just made the burgers & the instructions were clear & concise & they tasted amazing. I even treated my house mate to dinner & he was dubious of my cooking ability. He loved them too :D never will my girlfriend moan about me not knowing what to make for dinner! Two thumbs up Jamie!!
20 min wonder
By: StumpyRider - 19-Oct-2009
After reading the +ve reviews and loving Jamie's current tv series (at home) I bought this app without delay.Tonight was my 1at attempt after buying up the essentials and judging by the comments and sounds from my lovely lady proves this app works. I cooked the monkfish risotto which I must add was the tastiest meal I've ever cooked! My only quibble was to scroll to the next step of the receipe I had to keep cleaning one finger so I didn't gunge my touch's screen. That said it worked perfectly. Jamie if I could i'd thank you personally. My best app.
By: rakim89 - 20-Oct-2009
This app has been so encouraging, really making me feel comfortable walking into the kitchen and making a decent meal, not only for myself, but others!The only enhancements I'd request would be to have a rating system for each recipe with input from other users and other ideas and tips they may have. Also, when Jamie's voice comes on as a voiceover it stops my iPod music...but when the voiceover finishes the music isn't started again automatically so I need to manually start it again (just a little bug which I'm sure can be ironed out in an update).But for the confidence this app gives, it's priceless. There is no way you can be let down.

Jamie certainly delivers some great recipes here but two aspects really stand out to me with this app. (1) engaging and playful video lessons covering REALLY useful tips like how to make risotto (there's a 10min clip showing all the important steps) and how to rapidly chop onions. These vids are delivered without a hint of condescendence either. Also, (2) the shopping list that arranges items according to which aisle they are found. I just love that. Has definitly inspired me to get more proficient in the kitchen more than any of the cookbooks I've ever bought and I'm actually starting to believe I can be a descent cook one day!
It does help and great ease of use
By: SatyaB - 24-Oct-2009
I didn't think an iPhone app for cooking would actually work or help but it does. This app brings together the ease of use of the iPhone and the genius of Jamie together.The shopping list is a great utility that I use at the markets and the reciepes are simple and great. Yesterday I made one of the best chicken tikka curries i'de ever made thanks to this app, right from perfectly chopped onions to moist chicken and creamy sauce it was all perfect. That is saying a lot cause I'm Indian and I know my curries. It would take me another 3 weeks to exhaust this app. Hence updates to reciepes once a month would be perfect.
VERY APP-ROPRIATE by SSR
By: relentlesspush - 20-Oct-2009
Superb little app. Never paid for one before but very happy to shell out £4.99. Everything about this app is quality. Very well thought out. Great recipes and everything is made very easy. I have learned some great tips through the videos and the tutorial on how to get the perfect steak will be useful to many. You can also sign-up to Jamie's American site and receive a further five recipies. Excellent !!
Great for newbies like me!
By: Twone77 - 20-Oct-2009
Last week I was torn between getting this and Dishy. In the end I purchased Dishy as I was put off by the price and was slightly cynical about the glowing reviews of which there were only a handful of at the time. However after seeing loads more highly positive reviews I thought 'What the hell!' and downloaded it. Although I've yet to cook any of the meals (which I suspect will take me longer than 20 minutes!) I am more than happy with the app. Some people have moaned about the videos which I can understand but to someone like myself they are great home tutorials by a well known chef. Being shown and told what you need in your kitchen is really useful. The steak class is almost worth the price of the app!
My one minor criticism is that there is only 50 meals on the app but I'm there will be more in future updates. In all this is highly recommended for someone that wants to learn how to cook but doesn't know where to start.
P.S. The last time I met Jamie he was addicted to a crackberry not an iphone!!!
Jamie's 20 Minute Meals - Best iPhone recipe!!!
By: rayson.goh - 20-Oct-2009
Finally! Been awaiting an iPhone app for Jamie's fabulous recipes!! This is the perfect electronic recipe created for and stored on the iPhone that allows convenient reference anytime, anywhere. The app is easy to navigate, very intuitive. Step-by-step instructions in the form of a deck of reference cards with crisp photographs makes it dummy-proof even for those without much knowledge about cooking. The shopping list that enables users to drop the entire list of ingredients for a recipe with the option of customizing to one's preference is a fantastic idea. Though a bit pricey, I find it money well spent. Looking forward to more apps for Jamie's mouth-watering recipes. Two thumbs up!!!
Best reciepe app
By: Dune180 - 21-Oct-2009
Its a great app, its good for ppl who are on the go and hardly time to cooka good meal. I like the shopping cart thing, its very usefull when i go to the market and just feel that i should cook something speical for my loved ones. Great app you have here. I recommend people who have thepassion for cooking or want to cook great meals in lease amount of time get this app you wont regret it. 5 stars for this app.
By: seedy123 - 3-Nov-2009
What a wonderful application! I madey first pasta yesterday and it was delicious. I love the recipes and I adore the step by step photos. I can't wait for more recipes! Two things I would change would be the measurments for food. Wish it had a toggle button as I don't weigh my peas or cheese ( oz ). As well would like to add individual items to my shopping list from recipes as I am always just one to four items short of the recipes. It's tiring adding the recipes and then going and crossing 80% of the items off that I already have.Over all a must have. I love this application. And will be cooking every single recipe!
By: olsiris - 11-Oct-2009
This app is quite simply amazing. I have watched all the videos and I feel like a better cook already. The shopping list feature is brilliant, as are all the recommendations for equipment etc. The recipes all look very easy to follow and there are lots of pictures to help you out along the way. I look forward to getting in the kitchen and trying them all out. Please keep the app updated with new recipes and videos and it will, without a doubt, be the most useful application I own.
By: Rosiezt - 20-Oct-2009
I used the shopping list, the video tips, and the written instructions and pictures along with my children for us to make a family meal. We made the 'bang bang' chicken and pasta meal. It was so yummy we had it again the next day :-) My children now know half a dozen ways to prepare garlic and they loved this way of cooking together - from the shopping for ingredients to serving it up on warmed plates. Only down side, the recipes did not take me anything like the expected 20 mins - more like an hour. Maybe in a perfect kitchen with chef like preparation skills, but, sorry Jamie, we loved all of this app except those unrealistic timings were not for normal people. Tip: put your iphone up on a shelf and have a damp cloth ready to wipe grubby fingers or your iphone will end up in a bit of a mucky state.
By: Ramsey aint cuttin it - 20-Oct-2009
Great app. Well worth it. When you consider that a Jamie book containing these meals could cost 4 times the cost without all the video instructions & really helpful tips, its a no brainer, trust me. My daughter cooked us a meal for the first time in ages, she loved doing it & i loved eating it. Its my turn next, cant wait.
Resturant quality food at half the price. If you have half an interest in food & cooking ( Which you have or else you wouldnt be reading this) buy this app & enjoy.
Just hope Jamie updates with more recipes & clips.
49 days to go before I starve again
By: Fatdoc - 20-Oct-2009
I'm am hopeless at cooking and generally put off by the formality of getting a book of the shelf, thinking about what I fancied, going through the cupboards looking for stuff, writing the shopping list, you know the score. This is perfect for techno guy like me, got the app, looked at a picture, thought 'looks nice', ticked off the shopping list in the kitchen stuff I had then off to the shops. Voila! Sausage carbonara for the first time in my life. I'm very grateful to Jamie because now my family and I won't starve for at least the next 50 days after that, there had better be an update or I'm a gonner!
Way to go, Jamie!!
By: TheChickPea - 25-Oct-2009
My husband and I both love this app. The videos are very informative and fun, the recipes are super easy to follow with the step-by-step pictures for each, and the great shopping list feature makes this better than a cookbook right there!There are recipes for soups, curries, stir-fries, fish, meat, etc.,...and 12 vegetarian choices! Nothing is too contrived, but everything is good enough for guests and ready in about 20 minutes.Jamie mentions in one video that more recipes will be coming which is fantastic!! I will be using this app a LOT. My only wish would be for the inclusion of a nutritional analysis for each recipe. Still...definitely deserves 5 stars!!!
Excellent App - 5 stars
By: Stevee_p - 21-Oct-2009
Not to quote everyone else buy this is a slick app. Well thought out and easy to use. As a warning to others though, make sure you've got a good wi fi signal before downloading, as this took me 2 hours to download. I thought I might have had a 'dodgy' download, but my friend also downloaded and took 2 hours. Don't get me wrong, it's definately worth waiting for and I still give it 5 stars as it's a great app. I just thought I would mention incase you're just about to start cooking!
The perfect app!!!!!!
By: larambla - 21-Oct-2009
This application is faultless. I hope other developers watch and learn how an app should be made. There has been so much thought put into it and it is a joy to use. The recipes are delicious and the photographs and videos are incredibly helpful and are amazing quality. I agree with the previous comments about the video for how to chop an onion being worth the money alone. I have been doing it wrong all of my life. Well done Jamie and team. Can't wait to see what updates you have planned :o)
Most Useful App
By: mahadeen - 24-Oct-2009
I purchased this app without hesitation and I was right. Is very useful for organizing simple great recipes for the week. The vids are great, I finally know how to sharpen a knife. You can add your other items to the shopping list. This is the app that makes people want to go out and buy a touch/ iPhone. This is worth the 8 bucks and I wouldn't expect them to decrease the price at all or by much. My fav app!!
A new benchmark in app standards
By: BrettWorth - 21-Oct-2009
The app exceeds all expectactions for what an iPhone app is meant to be. It's highly polished in every detail and a joy to use and browse. The content is worth the price alone.As far as cooking, tutorial and how-to apps go this app really sets a new standard.Only hopes for the future of this app is like many others have said: in app purchasing to add more recipes.Great app, very well done to all who were involved.(iPhone 3g user)
