Can you really eat well on a tight budget?

Yes, you can! As food blogger Jane Ashley shows, the key is to be a savvy shopper and to cook from scratch rather than rely on pre-prepared foods. And it’s all much easier than you might think.

This book offers delicious, quick recipes, together with simple instructions for everything from how to joint a chicken to making your own bread, pastry, sauces and dressings.

Along with weekly menu plans and fully-costed shopping lists, you’ll find money-saving tips, as well as dedicated menus for different diets, including vegetarian, vegan, low-carb and gluten-free. All of Jane’s recipes can be easily adapted, whether you are cooking for one or have multiple mouths to feed.

Home Economics will not only save you money, but will transform the way you cook…
