  • This book is literally full of frugal food - recipes which are cheap to make. I have made the deviled chicken drumsticks, which were yum and easy, and the quick wholemeal bread, which was a massive disaster. The bread tastes nice but it stuck to my loaf tin like glue (which was well greased, as advised!) and I'm not sure the loaf tin can be saved. There are no photos of dishes in the book and some of the recipe titles are in French, which required a bit of research to translate on my part.This b [...]


  • I've enjoyed reading through this cook book to get Delia's take on frugal eating as well and it being a re-print from 1976. (I also managed a frugal purchase of the book ad it cost me just £1 in a local Havens charity shop).Most of the recipies are common sense recipies rather that frugal in the sense that I've become accustomed, the extravagance seems to have been cut but some of the basic ingredience used are far from frugal - i.e. Beef, tuna and the tonnes of creme that is used throughout th [...]


  • I recently got this old stand-by out to look for ideas to use up our windfall apples. It truly took me back in time to more frugal days when I certainly needed this book to make nourishing meals within a tight budget. Liberal use of good techniques (tarts, cakes, curries, stews) are always a great way of making the most of eggs, cheese, cheap cuts of meat, sausages, and so on. Having made the Apple Shortcake with our own apples and lots of hand-picked blackberries from the village hedges, I can [...]


  • I've added this edition manually as it is the 2008 version. I believe it is much the same as the original with just a few changes to reflect modern tastes. Unfortunately I don't know if it's possible to upload a cover picture.The recipes are common sense recipes and I've probably got most of them in one form or another but it's nice to have a book of simple recipes that use easy to find ingredients. I believe that the recipe for sausages braised in cider has been one of the most popular since th [...]


  • Useful basic recipes that are generally quite cheap to put together. As another reader has commented, the recipes' energy use has not been updated to reflect 21st-century frugality. I can buy exotic ingredients quite cheaply, but heating eight litres of water to blanch a cabbage for two minutes is actually quite expensive. However I just plan around the silliest of these instructions - for instance using said hot water to boil some pasta - and add twice as much garlic and pepper as needed, makin [...]


  • I'm not a great fan of Our Lady Delia but as I collect cookery books and this was in mint condition at 30p as withdrawn from my local library, I bought it.As many cookbooks are today, a large format, thick tome in heavyweight paper. Why ?


  • I have a very old paperback version of this. Pork rissoles with apple sauceYou need to try these! It should be a law. With mashed potatoes and leeks. This apple sauce is now my go-to apple sauce.



  • I was disappointed that she hadn't really updated the recipes. So it's going back to the library and I haven't tried any recipes.
