Seventy-five comforting, delicious and affordable recipes from Jack Monroe, star of BBC's Daily Kitchen Live and author of the Sunday Times bestseller, Tin Can Cook.
Food writer and anti-poverty campaigner Jack Monroe presents Good Food for Bad Days, a collection of cheering, tasty and easy meals to make when you're low in spirits.
Eating properly is one of the biggest hurdles when you're feeling low, so these recipes (dubbed 'depressipes' by Jack) give you everything you need in a dish; they are inexpensive, simple and filling so that cooking and eating a nutritious meal doesn't seem like an impossible task. This collection includes comforting dishes such as Quick and Spicy Noodles, Recalibration Supper, Jaffa Cake Mug Pudding and Hot Apple Pies.
In this handy little paperback cookbook, Jack shares friendly and creative tips for making a little go a long way and for using store-cupboard ingredients: perfect for when you're feeling overwhelmed by whatever is on your plate, but still want to take care of yourself.
Jack Monroe is both cookery writer and tenacious campaigner . . . she understands first hand what it's like to be skint and have the desire to put something delicious on the table.
At a time when good food can often be seen as rather elitist or exclusive, Jack has done an excellent job to create recipes which are simple, straightforward and delicious.
