Product description


"* "A cracking book by a great young lad - get the teenagers cooking!" Jamie Oliver on Cooking up a Storm" --Jamie Oliver

His latest book Sam Stern s Student Cookbook is a little gem which should not be reserved for students alone the first few pages are full of thrifty tips and brilliant nutritional advice. Keeping fit is a great motivation. If you re into sport, training, or just want to feel good about the way you look, cooking s key to sorting energy and performance. Tailor your menu to your physical needs and you can trust that what you re eating is fit for purpose e.g. carbs for energy (eat pasta), protein for muscle (get pork or tofu). Same goes for exams, work etc. Eating the right stuff (iron, protein, omega 3s, and vitamins) gives you the focus you need but hey, do it in style with some great home-cooked tastes and maximise the pleasure. There are lots of savvy and smart shopping tips, advice on planning ahead, a basic store cupboard, how to source free food, energy and cash saving ideas, making the most of your food and basic techniques. The first few pages are worth the price of the book alone. But there are over 200 cracking recipes which are categorised into: £ Skint/ saving, ££ Average, £££ Flush / celebration. Veggie options and fast to cook are also highlighted. A little gem, not only as a present for young people but for all the rest of us as well. DARINA ALLEN S BALLYMALOE NEWSLETTER --Darina Allen's Ballymaloe Newsletter

The food here is, for the most part, healthy without being worthy. It doesn t seem like the usual student food of strange combinations, dishes of 3 ingredients one of which will be either chocolate or Marmite. This is sensible stuff that anyone would enjoy eating - snacks, soups, pasta, puddings, as well as veggies, meat and fish. Each recipe is marked with a price symbol. A single £ sign indicates skint/saving and £££ is for the day your aunty sends you a bit of birthday money. Other markers let you know if the dish is suitable for vegetarians, how many it feeds, and if it s fast to cook. It s an easy way to find suitable choices at a glance. Sam s cookbook will have young people cooking for themselves but also for friends and family. There are smart dishes as well as quick and casual meals. This is all about surviving in style on a budget. Cooking should be fun so buy this book and eat some lovely food. Great value for money. MOSTLY FOOD JOURNAL --Mostly Food Journal

Perfect for college starters, gap-year travellers and first-jobbers alike, Sam's cookery bible is grouped into user-friendly chapters based on food types.
