Customer Review

on 6 January 2006
This is the cookbook that my mother taught herself to cook with in the 1970s and that she gave to me when I left home. It is such a wonderful book--it teaches how to cook really good food without using any junk, tricky ingredients or waste. Everything I have ever made from it has been delicious and despite having a large collection of cookbooks, this is still my favourite. When I got my first Le Creuset pot its inaugural use was to make Flemish Beef Stew which was superb. And whilst the recipes are wonderful, the best thing about The Pauper's Cookbook is the way Jocasta Innes seems to talk directly to you as you cook. I often find myself chuckling as I read. Sheer delight!
