Delia Smith Confronts The Credit Crunch

Posted at 5:32AM Wednesday 17 Sep 2008

She has tackled the lazy with How to Cheat at Cooking and she has tackled the incompetent with How to Cook. Now Delia Smith is rising to the challenge of these credit-crunching times with a new edition of her 1970s classic Frugal Food, aimed at households struggling with rising grocery costs.

Advice includes being creative with leftovers, experimenting with different cuts of meat, including offal, using unfashionable varieties of fish and buying fresh produce when it is in season. "Being frugal can be fun once you've learned a few simple tricks," Smith's publisher Hodder & Stoughton promises, adding that the book is "now more relevant than ever as the UK teeters on the edge of recession".
