Product description


One of the harshest realities of student life is when you suddenly realise that no-one is cooking for you anymore. But don't despair - there's no such thing as "can't cook, won't cook". Forget beans on toast every night and frittering money on takeaways, there are plenty of tasty and hasty recipes in this book. No matter how strapped for cash, how hung-over or partied out you are, how weary from cramming, there's inspiration galore in this book. It includes essential equipment for the kitchen; tips for a balanced diet; shopping advice; how to boil or fry an egg and great ideas for all-day breakfasts; a selection of one-pot meals to save on the washing-up; super-speedy snacks that beat the munchies and grazing nosh for television watching; a few "posh nosh" ideas for entertaining; vegetarian/vegan recipes; hangover busters; and a cocktail section to get the party started.

From the Publisher

I wish this book had been around when I was a student and having to fend for myself for the first time. The recipes are all extremely simple but interesting and varied, and the symbols are particularly useful, especially if you’re a vegetarian or vegan, or if you just want something that’s going to alleviate your hangover. I love the section called ‘Come to Dinner’, which has loads of ideas for when you’re trying to impress your mates, and the cocktails in the final chapter have to be sampled – though possibly not all in the same evening! This book is guaranteed to bring out the Delia or Jamie you.
