Hamlyn All Colour Cookery: 200 Budget Meals

Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook

With ever-rising food prices becoming a concern, many opt for the low-cost food ranges available in our supermarkets. However, a report by the National Consumer Council in 2006 shows that most bargain basement lines contain significantly more salt - as well as more fat and sugar - than their more expensive counterparts, with only 35% of low-cost ranges meeting the Food Standards Agency's new sodium target. As all the ingredients in Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook: 200 Budget Meals are chosen and cooked by you, they're the best way to monitor your salt, sugar and fat intake levels while keeping the cost of your meals to a minimum.

With food costs growing every year, many of us can do nothing but buy the same cheap ingredients each week, resulting in us eating the same old meals every day. However, with Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook: 200 Budget Meals this will become a thing of the past. This book shows you how to take these inexpensive ingredients and, with a bit of ingenuity and flair, turn them into sumptuous meals for any occasion. From soups and starters to suppers and desserts, there are 200 recipes for every chef on a shoestring budget, including clever variations and new ideas for delicious dishes. With tastebud-tingling photography and clear step-by-step instructions for every recipe, the only thing you need to worry about is which recipe to cook next!
