It's called 5 by 25 ( learn 5 recipes by the time that you are 25) and it's fronted by Chef James Martin. While it's a great idea and a concept that I applaud my jaw hit the floor when I saw the list of meals that are there for you to master.
I thought pretty much the same thing when I looked at what Jamie Oliver was doing when he started his campaign pass it on campaign, his campaign to get the nation cooking, it seems to have floundered a bit. The episode I remember watching they made a chicken tikka and rice, there were these really fat people loading up on big portions of rice. There is nothing wrong with the chicken tikka but why did they need that rice.
What's the point encouraging people to cook meals that are going to make them fat!
Anyway back to 5 by 25.
I'll save you the time of looking up the website. Let me review some of the recipes they have listed.
What's the point – where do you start to say anything about this lot.
- Apple muffins
- Bread rolls
- Iced fairy cakes
- Choc chip cookies
- Wholemeal chicken pasties
- Yorkshire puddings
There are a few meals that are halfway decent like a beef casserole and a lamb stir fry with Teryiaki sauce, but the majority of the meals sadly miss the mark from a nutritional stand point.
