This was a blast from the past. I tried getting the original Pauper's Cook Book which my sister purchased when she went up to university in 1976. She cooked for me using the book when I visited her in London - Corned beef hash as I recall. It is impossible to get the original - with quotations of 500 pounds !!! Not very pauperish any more. This is a substitute which I have got for my youngest, my son who has gone to Manchester University to study Physics as well as how to cook for himself. He is not a novice but I was sure this would be just the thing. A classic which needs to be re-issued.
