Destitute Gourmet: Stunning Food From Small Change - Sophie Gray (10th Anniversary Edition)
This is the revised edition of the bestselling Destitute Gourmet: Stunning food from small change, first published in 2000. An inspiration to numerous home cooks over the years, Destitute Gourmet has given them the skills to cook delicious, healthy food on a budget as well as encouraging them to innovate and improvise.
Sophie Gray is the destitute gourmet. In response to a significant drop in family income several years ago, Sophie was forced to reconsider her grocery budget. She needed to feed two fussy children and satisfy two foodie adults who liked to entertain friends. She became aware of the increasing dependence of domestic cooks on ready-made foods and realised that basic cooking skills were being forgotten.
What do you really need in your pantry? What can you easily do without? How can you create gourmet meals to enjoy with your family and friends and not have to live on bread and water for the next week?
This book is for everyone who wants to spend less on groceries and still enjoy tasty, fashionable and healthy food.
