Not quite as advertised
on 23 February 2009
I admit I bought the book because of the reviewers's claim that the menus 'average out at about £30 a week for a family of four' including organic meat (2007 prices). I wish.
Yes the meals I made were delicious, yes the recipes are clearly laid out and easy to follow, nor do you have to be a trained chef to follow them but when I got the book, the costings were made for evening meals only, and for only five days out of the seven.
I would still recommend the book for its recipes and costcutting tips but
treat the reviews quoted with caution.
A thumbs up for the section on school lunches: some commonsense tips on what to put in the sandwich box so that it will be both edible and nutritious. On the whole a good buy
