9780140461640: The Pauper's Cookbook

Jocasta Innes shows that delicious and stylish cooking does not have to rely on expensive ingredients and that budget food does not mean simply opening a tin or a packet. Frugal and inventive tips on sensible shopping, using leftovers and creating home-made versions of store-bought favourites help to cut the costs at every stage.

This well loved kitchen classic was originally published in 1971, a pioneering book in its use of cheaper cuts of meat, offal, pulses and veg, supplemented by foraged ingredients. It has been totally revised and updated to take into account the ever-increasing range of low-cost ingredients now available in local supermarkets, and is reissued here with a new cover design. More than 250 recipes, including soups, puddings and vegetarian meals, ranging from quick snacks to impressive party dishes, will suit every occasion and guarantee the tastiest results at the cheapest cost.

About the Author:

Jocasta Innes (1934-2013) was born in China, took a degree in Modern Languages at Cambridge and worked on the London Evening Standard before publishing her first book, The Pauper's Cookbook, in 1971. The Country Kitchen followed in 1979. Restoring a derelict brewery in Spitalfields, East London, led to her next book, Paint Magic, published in 1981. This and subsequent books were to influence the nation's interiors as profoundly as her earlier recipe books had influenced our tables.

Review:

Before culinary queen Delia Smith and star homemaker Kirstie Allsopp there was Jocasta Innes, a domestic goddess pioneer who taught the world that a great deal of imagination can make a little budget go surprisingly far in the kitchen and all around the home



‘43 years after it was first published, The Pauper's Cookbook should still have a place in every modern kitchen’



 From kedgeree to koulibiac (a Russian fish pie, since you ask) there are recipes to suit all and even to inspire

There are tons of austerity cookbooks around, but if looking for one, my favourite is The Pauper's Cookbook by Jocasta Innes
