Review

"* "A cracking book by a great young lad - get the teenagers cooking!" Jamie Oliver on Cooking up a Storm" --Jamie Oliver

His latest book Sam Stern s Student Cookbook is a little gem which should not be reserved for students alone the first few pages are full of thrifty tips and brilliant nutritional advice. Keeping fit is a great motivation. If you re into sport, training, or just want to feel good about the way you look, cooking s key to sorting energy and performance. Tailor your menu to your physical needs and you can trust that what you re eating is fit for purpose e.g. carbs for energy (eat pasta), protein for muscle (get pork or tofu). Same goes for exams, work etc. Eating the right stuff (iron, protein, omega 3s, and vitamins) gives you the focus you need but hey, do it in style with some great home-cooked tastes and maximise the pleasure. There are lots of savvy and smart shopping tips, advice on planning ahead, a basic store cupboard, how to source free food, energy and cash saving ideas, making the most of your food and basic techniques. The first few pages are worth the price of the book alone. But there are over 200 cracking recipes which are categorised into: £ Skint/ saving, ££ Average, £££ Flush / celebration. Veggie options and fast to cook are also highlighted. A little gem, not only as a present for young people but for all the rest of us as well. DARINA ALLEN S BALLYMALOE NEWSLETTER --Darina Allen's Ballymaloe Newsletter

The food here is, for the most part, healthy without being worthy. It doesn t seem like the usual student food of strange combinations, dishes of 3 ingredients one of which will be either chocolate or Marmite. This is sensible stuff that anyone would enjoy eating - snacks, soups, pasta, puddings, as well as veggies, meat and fish. Each recipe is marked with a price symbol. A single £ sign indicates skint/saving and £££ is for the day your aunty sends you a bit of birthday money. Other markers let you know if the dish is suitable for vegetarians, how many it feeds, and if it s fast to cook. It s an easy way to find suitable choices at a glance. Sam s cookbook will have young people cooking for themselves but also for friends and family. There are smart dishes as well as quick and casual meals. This is all about surviving in style on a budget. Cooking should be fun so buy this book and eat some lovely food. Great value for money. MOSTLY FOOD JOURNAL --Mostly Food Journal

I went to uni with "How to Boil an Egg", a hand-me-down from my older brother. I, like my older brother, used this book for 5 minutes and then ate pasta, tinned tuna and pesto for the remainder of my degree only really discovering the 'oven' after graduation.

My older brother and I have just bought this book for our younger brother who is off to uni in October. I like Sam's easy writing style especially when applied to more testing recipes. This book's legend is particularly useful not only stating how many each recipe feeds (from 1 to 12) and whether or not it's vegetarian but going that step further telling you how quick each recipe is to make and most importantly an approximate gauge of how expensive the recipe is (skint/average/flush).

With any luck our brother will leave uni healthy, knowing how to cook properly and without a mountain of debt!

This is a brilliant new book. I have the other books in the series by Sam Stern which are all good. But this is by far the best one. The recipes are simple and tasty but also offer something for the more accomplished cook. The lay out is great, clearly stating the preparation times, number of people and difficulty etc. Great pictures and the perfect size to fit in any students bag on the way back to University. More than that any kitchen should have it. A definite must.

Im no longer a student but probably a worse cook than most. Felt the need to master the basics, so decided to get a cookbook. This one appealed to me as it was a user friendly size, had good pictures and was aimed at the right level ie. beginner aiming to progress on to bigger fancier things.
I have already tried out some of the recipes with success and i am glad to report that i have baked my first ever cake with this book, which even impressed my cynical boyfriend (who is not usually a fan of my cooking abilities.) I look forward to trying more recipes and mastering more dishes.

Although I am no longer a student, I heartily recommend it to would-be cooks of all ages. I have a toddler and we have enjoyed making several of the recipes together, especially the cinnamon jam buns. The idea of cooking on a budget should appeal to families and students alike. A great book.

Great cookbook from a very talented young man. I bought this copy for myself as my son is taking the first one I bought to Uni. Chicken Ramen has now become a family favourite.

Thanks Sam, more please!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Both my family and I use the other three Sam Stern books so much that I pre-ordered this before it was released. It has not disappointed - this is a stylishly presented book with an impressive range of recipes for all abilities and budgets. Sam is writing for students but don't let you put that off if you are not a student. There are recipes in here for everyone - whether you are studying, working or at home with the family. And in the current economic climate, the helpful key indicating the expense of each recipe will help you entertain or cook for your family without bankrupting yourself! In summary, a lovely looking book full of recipes that will get you and your family into the kitchen. As Gordon Ramsay says on the cover, don't enter the kitchen without it!

Format: Paperback
This book is great value because it is jam-packed with tonnes of new recipes of all different kinds, with the added bonus not only for students but for anyone right now is that it helps you to keep within a budget.

My favourite Sam Stern book up to now was 'real food real fast' but this is definately up there with it, mainly for the volume of recipes- you could never run out of ideas even when watching the pennies with this book around!

The new handy size almost makes it an easy book to use- esp for those such as me (and most likely many students!) who have very small kitchens.

Buy it- not only for students or teens, for anyone who wants to cook good fresh food with limited funds!
