Overview

So what if filet mignon and foie gras are no longer on the menu? Diana Henry revives the lost art of home economics-making the most of what you have-combining it with today's desire for a sustainable table to show modern cooks that there is "plenty" of food for us to eat and enjoy without depleting our bank accounts and the planet's resources.

This cook's tour of recipes from around the globe is all about the great food you can make without spending a ton of money. With what's left from a simple Roast Chicken, make a fabulous Greek Chicken, Pumpkin, Feta & Filo Pie. Turn a bumper crop of tomatoes and basil into a satisfying Tomato & Pesto Tart. Thanks to a special section on less expensive cuts of meat, you'll soon be creating new family favorites from lamb shoulder, pork belly, skirt steak and the like.

From the Publisher
If chicken is a slab of marble, Henry is Michelangelo—Entertainment Weekly
Library Journal
During these tough economic times, many are cutting back and doing more with less, but that doesn't require sacrificing flavor. Henry (Roast Figs Sugar Snow: Winter Food To Warm the Soul) offers recipes from around the world—e.g., Lamb, Beer, and Black Bean Chili; Thai Mussels with Coconut, Chile, and Lime; and Blackberry and Ricotta Hot Cakes with Honey—demonstrating that great food can come at a reasonable price. A very timely book—sure to appeal to many cooks.
