Jack Monroe is a 24-year-old single mother and local newspaper reporter. Finding herself with a food budget of just £10 a week, she began to create nutritious recipes to feed herself and her son. Giving the recipes out to a local food bank, to help others in her situation, she then began to publish them online on her blog, A Girl Called Jack, which now has thousands of followers. Jack was awarded the 2013 Fortnum and Mason Judges' Choice Award for the impact that her blog has had. She lives in Essex with her son.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Real Cooking on a Budget 16. März 2014
Von Corgi girl - Veröffentlicht auf
This book is a wonderful antidote to all the food porn books. I love them like we all do, but many recipes aren't user friendly for someone on a budget (i.e. most of us.) I have a kitchen full of books & printed out recipes, some from well known chefs, where many of the recipes are either expensive to produce, or take a long time to cook, which isn't practical on a daily basis.
Jack Monroe sensibly starts with a list of pantry must haves, few in number, readily available & used in recipes throughout the book. If you didn't have any cooking experience at all & limited funds, this would be a great book for that reason alone. She also encourages growing your own herbs, which is a winner for taste, nutrition & your pocket.
Her down to earth style is easy to follow, & she encourages experimentation & the habit of using what you have available. Many of the recipes follow on from one another - you use an ingredient, then use up the remainder of the can in another recipe. I can't be the only person who so often searches memory, books & internet for a recipe to use up 1/2 a can of something & then ends up throwing it out because of time constraints.
I've made many of these recipes from Jack's wonderful online blog, & they're easy & taste delicious. Her curries are amazing, & healthy too! It's very easy to add a few different herbs or 1/2 a packet of spinach you have hanging around to the base recipes.
Being a.mother she understands the importance of fun food to children, & her pizzas cut out with biscuit cutters are
are a great idea. As she suggests, many of the recipe leftovers can easily be converted to next day lunches by wrapping in pita bread, for example.
Hints for freezing & drying leftover food & herbs are included as well.
This is a fantastic book. Buy it & encourage her to write more!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A treasure trove for everyone ! 26. April 2014
Von Cow Biscuits - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I started following a girl called jack blog last year following her superb response on the huffington post to Richard littlejohns attack on her in the UK press. The posts are a must read and the recipes featured on there have all been winners. The book features many that aren't on the blog so definitely worth buying, not just the blog printed in book form like some blog-to-books are.

This is book for anyone and everyone, foodie and non-foodie, budget conscious or not, beginner or experienced cook. All recipes are simple, healthy and tasty without being worthy austerity dishes. As a refreshing change to many books these days it does not feature expensive or difficult to get ingredients in fact most have around 5 or 6 ingredients most of them cupboard staples.

I made the roman pasta with basil and mandarins last night and it was amazing.

I have also made the penny pizzas, soups and will be making the famous kidney carrot burgers tomorrow.

This book is accessible and meant to be used rather than simply looked at (although it is beautifully presented and feels very real) and I would recommend it to anyone. Would make a great gift for a student off to university.

I am very pleased to read there will be a second book

I am very pleased to finally get a copy of this book. I discovered Jack (like I imagine many people did) last summer when her recipe for "kidney bean, carrot and cumin burgers" appeared in the Guardian. I tried those, mmm...delicious. I look forward to trying other recipes in this book. I like that it encourages experimentation and makes cooking accessible to ordinary people. Well done Jack!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic, great recipes and excellent advice for cooking on very tight budgets 5. Februar 2015
Von A. I. McCulloch - Veröffentlicht auf
Regular readers of Jack Monroe's blog will be familiar with her excellent recipes that conjour up quick tasty and above all, cheap meals from store-cupboard staples such as tinned chickpeas, lentils and cut-price bacon.
Those who have tried the recipes will know that they mostly work, and work extremely well.

This book is a collection of the blog recipes along with new ones but it is also so much more. There are beautiful but realistic photos by Susan Bell of each dish opposite the ingredients and method.

For some recipes such as 'Use -Me-For-Anything Tomato Sauce' there are helpful stage by stage photos arranged to make the procedures easy to follow; ideal for nervous novice cooks.

Each recipe has plenty of suggestions for variations - vegetarians and vegans will find that many of these recipes can be adapted to suit them.
For those not too familiar with her work, Jack introduces herself with some moving extracts from her blog - including the now-famous 'Hunger Hurts' piece - and at the end of the book, 'Hunger Hurts - One Year Later', showing just how far Jack has come in that time.
There is some incredibly sensible advice on the basics needed to equip a kitchen. The only expensive item required in many recipes is a blender, and Jack's cost under £10 sterling.

Sound advice is given on how to shop with a very limited budget and build up a store-cupboard at the same time - proteins first, vegetables second, then one store-cupboard carb per week -rice, bags of pasta, tins of potatoes (tins work out much cheaper than fresh and are surprisingly versatile). Then back to the fruit or tinned fruit with any spare cash.
It's this grounded sensible no-nonsense approach that infuses the book and makes it such a valuable read.

If you read Jack's blog regularly you may think you have seen all these recipes already; well, you haven't - many were new to me. There's some brilliant advice on getting a decent batter coating in a lovely Scampi Roes recipe (using tinned herring roes), and an inventive way of making gnocchi using tinned potatoes.
With recipes being so budget focused, ingredients lists are almost always under ten items and often seven or less.

I've been cooking for many years using UK cook Shirley Goode's and Jocasta Innes' budget recipes. Jack is their equal, if not better, in that she is bang-up-to-date in what ingredients are readily available to today's cook.
Costings aren't given but very few recipes appear to be more than £1.50 per head - and many are substantially less. (UK prices)

Some recipes are very good - mixed bean goulash, sausage and lentil hotpot, creamy salmon pasta - but there is one that doesn't work and that's the Diet Coke Chicken.
Jack describes it as being 'sticky', but to be sticky it needs a sugar content, and there is none in the recipe. It's a rather boring non-sticky tomato reduction, not very nice and the Diet Coke may as well have been water. I tried it again with honey in the mix as I would for a BBQ sauce and it worked.

I bought and donated a copy of the paperback to my local public library to make it available to those who cannot afford to buy a copy

Jack is exceptional in the way she has fought her way out of the poverty that mindless bureaucracy imposed upon her, but there are many, many like her who need her wisdom and hard -won knowledge.

One of the best books on budget cooking I've read from someone who has lived the penny pinching life. This brings authenticity to her writing. I found the recipes easy to prepare and full of great ideas to feed children...a real plus.
