New Frugally Delicious Cookbook serves up recipes to help consumers munch their way through the credit crunch
LONDON, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Frugally Delicious isn't a fancy 'coffee-table' cookbook. It's a frugally themed book, created by real food bloggers and chefs for people who want to make great food that which won't break the bank. The book features a range of recipes from light bites and snacks, soups and salads all the way to hearty main meals and desserts.
Families in the UK have been battling with high inflation and sluggish wage growth. The average household in the UK spends 11% of its weekly expenditure on food. The price of food in May was up 4.3% on 2011 levels - the same rate of increase as recorded in April. Compared to the rest of the EU food and non-alcoholic drink prices have risen by considerably more in the UK since June 2007; three times as much as France and 2.7 times as much as in Germany.
The book is a budget-friendly Â£3.30 / $5.29 excluding postage and packing. Consumers can visit lulu.com to buy a copy: http://www.lulu.com/shop/hannah-smith/frugally-delicious/paperback/product-20122316.html
Andrew Smith at ClearDebt said, Â "Too often cookbooks require lots of new ingredients and often use items that are expensive, making great cooking on a budget very difficult. The rising cost of food is a real concern for the vast majority of UK households, we wanted to create a book that was full of recipes that anyone can make that don't cost a fortune to help consumers deal with the pressure of rising food costs." Â "The excitement of each blogger at seeing their recipe and blog published in the cookbook has been an unexpected bonus. It is a great feeling to have helped get their talents recognised." Â
