THE PAUPER'S COOKBOOK

Description Description

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.

Jocasta Innes
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.
