Amazing & Nourishing,
This review is from: The Pauper's Cookbook (Paperback)
This book exemplifies the requriements of a non-cook and gives valuable advice on not only what to cook, how to cook it but with what to cook it and what is required to cook it in! A recent (ancient) review described it as the essential item for a 1st year Uni student, existing on minimal means, who needs to eat to survive. Stuff the 1st year Uni person - it's real life!!
From my own experience I can reccomend the curried lentil soup and the most amazing 'padding' of toad in the hole et al.
A must for all who need to survive on a shoestring although, sadly, there is no advice on how to cook that item!!
Together with Hamlins All Colour Cook Book you need noting else to eat, give great dinner parties and live on a limited budget.
