Product description

Amazon Review

Feasts for a Fiver accompanies Sophie Grigson's new series for BBC2. In the television series, she creates delicious meals that are also outstanding value for money. To bring together this selection of mouth-watering menues--all but one of which can be made for five pounds--Sophie has travelled throughout Great Britain, tracking down the finest local ingredients and meeting people who share her passion for food.

One of the keys to eating well, without breaking the bank, is working with the seasons to capture ingredients at their height of flavour and quality. In autumn, for example, local growers may have a glut of golden pumpkins that they sell off cheaply, and wild blackberries and hazelnuts can be had for free. Feasts for a Fiver shows how planning two or three meals at a time is another important money saver, so that one central ingredient, such as a whole chicken, can be used creatively to spread the cost of a meal.

In addition to seasonal recipes, Sophie provides tips on shopping and planning menus, and gives a useful reminder of when vegetables, herbs, fruit, meat and fish are at their most affordable. Packed with ideas and tricks, Feasts for a Fiver proves that low cost doesn't have to mean low quality.
