4.0 out of 5 stars Great book with fantastic recipes for students
Really really great cookbook. I'm currently a student at Edinburgh and have enjoyed using this throughout August. It's good for one person and all recipes can be scaled up to cater for more. Thoroughly recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good recipes, but not a very appropriate title.
I got this as a Christmas present for my son (14) to ease him into a little cooking - as I'm hoping to become a couch potato. The recipes are nicely laid out in a consistent style and the writing is very concise and clear enough for me to follow. I'm no fifteen - minute Jamie myself so that's good.
And the main good point is that the food is excellent. To be honest...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good recipes, but not a very appropriate title., 11 Sept. 2014

This review is from: The Hungry Student Cookbook: 200+ Quick and Simple Recipes (The Hungry Cookbooks) (Flexibound)
I got this as a Christmas present for my son (14) to ease him into a little cooking - as I'm hoping to become a couch potato. The recipes are nicely laid out in a consistent style and the writing is very concise and clear enough for me to follow. I'm no fifteen - minute Jamie myself so that's good.
And the main good point is that the food is excellent. To be honest I would have preferred to give it 3.5 stars on the strength of that but I see that other reviewers have generally been positive so I've gone for 3 to achieve balance.
The problem is that it does not live up to its title. The recipes are quite complex with quite a large number of ingredients, many of which are fresh. Preparation times too are quite long - in fact there'll be no fifteen-minute students, like Jamie or otherwise learning from here. In my student days fresh coriander was not a common sight and marinating overnight just wasn't quite how my life was planned!
So there it is.
"Good Food, But Not Quite As Easy As The Layout Leads You To Expect"
Not such a catch title, but more accurate.

This was a gift for my student daughter. Great selection of recipes - my only criticism would be that the print is a little small! But maybe that's just me. A very good gift for a student.

Perfect present for a new university student. Just what is needed to give to a young man who knows little about cooking

5.0 out of 5 stars The Student Gospel, 2 Feb. 2015

This review is from: The Hungry Student Cookbook: 200+ Quick and Simple Recipes (The Hungry Cookbooks) (Flexibound)
This is a must have for any student, providing not only tasty and easy meals but also providing helpful tips for other daily activities too. Should be renamed the student bible. My friends and I swear by this book and the affordability scale which comes with all the recipes was incredibly helpful. Would thoroughly recommend for all students and people living on their own for the first time.
