COLIN VICKERY OUT OF THE BOX
JAMIE’S 15 MINUTE MEALS, Channel 10, 7.30pm
CHANNEL 10 has been forced to shunt this Jamie Oliver cooking show into Thursday night after poor ratings for American Idol. That in itself is a pity because Idol is a terrific series that deserves a bigger audience. Oliver is a solid talent, but I doubt this is a long-term programming strategy. Tonight’s menu features a quick beef stroganoff with red onion and parsley pickle plus Moroccan mussels. Next, the celebrity chef plates up fish baps with mushy peas and a blue cheese, hazelnut and apple salad. All very tasty, but I can’t help thinking this is afternoon fare masquerading in prime time.
