Formats & editions


Based on simple, local, quick ingredients you can buy at any cornershop, this is how we really shop and cook

Based on simple budget-friendly ingredients that you can buy at any cornershop, look no further for delicious, quick, healthy meals.

From yam to Spam and greens to sardines, these mouthwatering recipes reveal the wealth of culinary creativity to be unlocked in your local shop. There are dead simple recipes for a quiet night in like Linguine with Tinned Crab; vibrant alternative takeaway offerings like Twice-Cooked Aubergine with Vietnamese Sauce; solutions for weeknights, from simple Smoked Salmon Baked Eggs to the larger-scale Fish Finger Tacos; there is comfort food, from nourishing Thyme, Chorizo and Leek Broth to a down-and-dirty Meatball Sub; and finally there are sweet treats like Frostie Florentines.

Whatever your shopping options, this book will inspire and nourish a love for cooking.
