The Pauper's Cookbook
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
This was the original austerity cookbook, first published in 1971, and it has been in print ever since. Now revised and updated for 21st-century cooks, it shows how it is possible to eat well on a tight budget by using pulses, vegetables and cheaper cuts of meat, supplemented by leftovers and foraged ingredients. Chapters include Standards, Padding - 'stretching small quantities of food (and money) a bit further', Pasta Faster, Veggies and Fancy Work.
