US premiere of Jamie Oliver's real-time cooking series set for BBC AMERICA

Jamie Oliver brings his years of experience to the culinary uninspired in this energetic food series, Jamie's 30-Minute Meals, premiering in BBC AMERICA's daytime lineup. Giving solid instruction in a tough talking, fast paced, as-live style, he creates great home-cooked meals from scratch. Jamie cooks up substantial mains, delicious sides and salads, gorgeous puddings and refreshing drinks - adding his own unique twist to each element. The series supports Jamie's continuing mission to improve people's lives through food by tackling the issues of kitchen confidence and lack of time, head on. The result is food programming that is as relevant and helpful as it is beautiful and seductive. Jamie's 30-Minute Meals premieres with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, May 1, 1:00pm ET/PT.

Each episode walks viewers through the steps needed to create an entire meal from scratch in just 30 minutes. The recipes are played out in real-time, offering a step-by-step account of each instruction so the viewer can then recreate that same meal in their own kitchen. No recipe is repeated and these meals are guaranteed to breathe new life into even the most experienced cook's repertoire.

Jamie Oliver explains: "If you want really great food, and fast, then do EXACTLY what I say. The years of me making pleasant suggestions are gone; I am going to tell you what to do, what to buy, when to turn your oven on and how to make these dishes. If you listen, you'll end up with a feast of beautiful things on your table in less than half an hour. This is about making people brilliant, on a daily basis."

Jamie Oliver's recipes will be available on BBCAmerica.com. Jamie's 30-Minute Meals is a Fresh One production that is distributed internationally by FremantleMedia Enterprises.
