Sophie Wright shows that making meals on a budget doesn't have to mean settling for the same boring, tasteless dinners. Her inventive and inspiring ideas make the most of meals such as roasting a chicken and using the leftovers to make a variety of dishes - from Chicken and Sweetcorn Chowder using stock from the carcass to Shredded Chicken with Pomegranate and Cardamom Scented Wild Rice. She illustrates how to get the best from storecupboard staples such as pasta and tinned beans and pulses, plus how sensible shopping can make the most of a few simple ingredients and avoid 'buy one get one free' offers going bad in the bottom of the fridge. Sophie's expert tips and delicious recipes will ensure you get value and quality for your money, without breaking the bank.
