This is a book for real cooks. It is also a book for people trying to feed a family well on a limited budget, as the title suggests. I brought my children up on it and at times things were very frugal. Nevertheless they ate well in all senses of the word - flavour, quality and balance. There is a wide range of recipes, and all of the ones that I have tried really do work. Don't be misled by the word 'Frugal' in the title. This is a set of superb recipes by any standard. Even my 25 year old son, who is now a chef, remembers the book.
