Whether you are short on time, experience or cash there will be something here you’ll want to cook. Good advice on the absolute basics to get you started and then you’re off. There’s a nifty guide to measuring with a mug or beer glass(!) a good range of recipes for the penniless alongside some good splurge menus to impress guests and/or parents. With the Ultimate Student Cookbook you won’t end up having to track down exotic ingredients and you won’t be left with a cupboard full of expensive once used ingredients either.

The Ultimate Student Cookbook Cheap, Fun, Easy, Tasty Food by, Rob Allison

The Ultimate Student Cookbook will be the cooking bible for all students; something every student will need at university, and every parent will want their teenagers to take with them as they embark on life away from home. It will focus on eating and living well as easily as possible and on a budget.This book offers a range of delicious recipes, from the very basic for complete beginners to more advanced meals for every occasion from dinner parties, hot dates to brain food for revising and comfort food that mum would have made. Along with these it will include some quirkier recipes such as chocolate mousse in a mug, or how to conjure up their favourite high-street dishes such as Nando's Peri Peri chicken or a sloppy Giuseppe pizza.


The recipes are simple, comforting and quick to prepare, making them perfect for young adults who are self catering for the first time. * MUMSNET.COM * There are some nice guides at the start of the book to help out with the basics, and this book is a must for any student, but also a great cookbook for anybody interested in cooking. * ANDY'S KITCHEN FOOD BLOG * It's a great book for those who are missing mum's cooking and want to recreate it, or any home cooks watching the pennies. * REVEAL MAGAZINE * Wise words are accompanied by notes on kitchen kit, culinary survival skills and store-cupboard stand-bys. * THE DAILY TELEGRAPH * There are some great recipes in The Ultimate Student Cookbook. If you've got a son or daughter (or grandson or granddaughter) heading off to university, this book is a must. It's got the basics, quick fixes and lots of tips to produce easy meals for not much money. * CHOICE MAGAZINE *
