“Simple, wholesome and tasty and cheap”

“I bought this book about 15 years ago. We were on a very tight budget and this is a book with plenty of good ideas for healthy and filling food using kitchen staples and no fancy delicatessen goods. We ate very well on its contents: lunches,dinners and afters and even snack foods. My son still makes the whole fruit cake whenever he can.”

About the Author
Bernie started to experiment and cook with wholefoods when she first came across them at 18, in a wholefood bakery in Notting Hill. Her dishes swiftly became popular with family and friends (including members of the Clash and Public Image Ltd., who often popped round for a bite to eat).
When her business collapsed, Bernadine had to find a way to feed her young family for just £28 a week and devised a hearty meal plan out of basic, wholesome ingredients.
Bernadine successfully raised her four children on these delicious meals and is delighted that they now enjoy cooking her recipes for their own children.

Fortunately, I have not been disappointed. This edition features some of the best (and easiest) recipes from earlier editions, including the delicious 'bargain bread' which even the least confident of cooks can make and enjoy. There are also some recipes which appear to have been changed only slightly, with perhaps more widely available ingredients substituted for the original recipes. (For instance, the 'vegetable risotto' has now become a 'red pepper risotto' but the basic recipe is essentially the same.)
There are enough variations and newer recipes to make this edition a worthy investment, even for people who already own older editions. I particularly appreciate the noticeable increase in the number of vegetarian recipes included in this edition. This is not altogether surprising given the increasing cost of meat. Fortunately, the veggie options provided here are tasty, easy to make and cheap.
This is really timely offering, given the ever-increasing cost of basic ingredients and proves that it is still possible to eat well and to enjoy a wide variety of foods and simple recipes, without needing to spend a fortune.
