Review:

"the ultimate budget food bible for all those with loans as large as their appetite" * Sunday Express * "If only I'd had a cookery book as useful as this when I was a student!" * Janet Street-Porter * "...the perfect stocking present for any student who can't cook and has blown a year's allowance on one term's fast food." -- Elfreda Pownall * The Spectator * "Hard Up and Hungry is pitched at just the right level for those who have to mind their money but want to eat well throughout University. There is nothing else quite like it out there." -- James Mercer * Blackwell's UK * "We can really vouch for this cook-book: it was self-published before Ebury picked it up and it sold like hot cakes here at Books for Cooks, beating all other student and cheap-and-cheerful first-time cookbooks hands down. It really is the ultimate budget cookbook...the recipes are genuinely delicious" * The Bookseller *

Book Description Ebury Publishing, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This student cookbook stands out from all the others on the market. It doesn t feature baked beans, and it s packed with truly mouthwatering, easy, nutritious recipes. Betsy Bell wrote this book for her children and their friends when they were heading to university. She realised that they all knew little (or nothing) about culinary survival, but that their sophisticated tastes went beyond the standard macaroni cheese and beans on toast recipes that feature in other student cookbooks. So Hard Up and Hungry includes recipes that students will want to make; that are tempting enough to keep them away from the nearest pizza outlet or chip shop. It includes Spaghetti with Fennel and Smoked Bacon, Spinach Frittata, Cod with Olives and Sweet Peppers, Southwestern Burgers, Italian Rice and Beans and sweet treats (including American pancakes and Vodka Jelly). Betsy doesn t forget the basics either: the ultimate Bacon Butty, Boiled Eggs and Baked Potatoes all feature too. The book is also packed with advice on how to store and shop for food inexpensively (including alternatives to supermarkets, and the pros and cons of online shopping). Illustrated throughout with hip black and white photographs and wiro bound, this is the ultimate cookbook for students and anyone who wants to cook fantastic food on a budget.
