from the publisher
As Susan Campbell and Caroline Conran point out, economical food need not be dull and dreary. 'Eating cheaply,' they say, 'does not mean buying inferior expensive ingredients, but good cheap ones. In Poor Cook they show you how to prepare fabulous food for next to nothing. A treasure house of both well-loved traditional dishes and more unusual recipes for soups, pates, pastas and much more, it also contains some of the clearest diagrams ever published on how to carve meat and bone fish and chicken.
"A very good book . . . bringing back memories of simple food that has been forgotten in the overwhelming flood of prepacked and convenience foods" Elizabeth Ray, The Observer
"The kind of cookery book which gives you hope even if all you can afford is half a dozen eggs" Yorkshire Post
