I had really high hopes for this book, which is probably why I thought it was disappointing.
The characters were well written, but I found the main character rather dull and self-absorbed and couldn't see how she was the centre of everyone's attention. I couldn't wait to get to the end of it so I could move onto another book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, easy bottle warmer, 31 Dec 2008
Easy to use, quality product for warming wine. Unlike other versions this warmer will not over-warm the wine if you leave it on. Highly recommended.

Although I had not read the original 'Frugal Food' I still found this book useful. It is based on her original book published in the '70s and has been updated for today's readers/cooks.

As a child of the seventies I found it very interesting from a 'historical' point of view (TVP anyone?) and the recipes are easy to follow and simple for just normal everyday food.

Most people know that to eat cheaply you have to shop in season and buy as little processed food as possible which is quite different to her 'how to Cheat' book - clearly Delia is aware of the changes in the economy since her last book!
