This review is from: The Pauper's Cookbook (Paperback)
I've had my copy of this book for well over twenty years now, it's much-thumbed with yellowing pages and interesting stains from various ingredients. Having just posted a negative review of India Knight's The Thrift Book I wondered if this infinitely superior guide to economising was still in print. And it is! Many of the recipes in this book have become family favourites. I particularly recommend the bacon, onion and apple fry-up which works well with sausages too. (Fry bacon, chopped apple and onion together. That's it. Delicious.)
This is a book which would make a great gift for anyone wanting to move away from convenience foods and into 'real cooking' but who isn't sure to go about it. The food in these pages is economical but above all it is TASTY. It's food that won't drive you nuts as you prepare it, using straightforward methods and equipment. I cannot recommend this highly enough.
