Description
By showing that kitchen skill, and not budget, is the key to great food, Good and Cheap will help you eat well—really well—on the strictest of budgets. Created for people who have to watch every dollar—but particularly those living on the U.S. food stamp allotment of $4.00 a day—Good and Cheap is a cookbook filled with delicious, healthful recipes backed by ideas that will make everyone who uses it a better cook. From Spicy Pulled Pork to Barley Risotto with Peas, and from Chorizo and White Bean Ragù to Vegetable Jambalaya, the more than 100 recipes maximize every ingredient and teach economical cooking methods. There are recipes for breakfasts, soups and salads, lunches, snacks, big batch meals—and even desserts, like crispy, gooey Caramelized Bananas. Plus there are tips on shopping smartly and the minimal equipment needed to cook successfully.And when you buy one, we give one!  With every copy of Good and Cheap purchased, the publisher will donate a free copy to a person or family in need. Donated books will be distributed through food charities, nonprofits, and other organizations. You can feel proud that your purchase of this book supports the people who need it most, giving them the tools to make healthy and delicious food.An IACP Cookbook Awards Winner.

        Brown's guide to eating on a limited budget, which evolved from a free PDF that went viral, seeks to help people living on SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly called food stamps) to plan satisfying meals. After providing economical shopping tips (e.g., buy in bulk, don't buy drinks), she shares recipes for everyday meals, snacks, pantry staples, drinks, and desserts. Brown estimates the cost per serving for all dishes, including potato leek pizzas, dark and spicy chili, and peanut chicken and broccoli with coconut rice. Readers will need to stock their pantries to achieve maximum savings, as it isn't possible to purchase some ingredients in the budgeted quantities. VERDICT Realistic photos and price approximations set Brown's straightforward and practical cookbook apart from similar titles such as Beth Moncel's Budget Bytes and Jessica Fisher's Good Cheap Eats. Many recipes are given in small serving sizes, so larger households will need to scale up.
