The Children’s Society created this cookbook to provide inexpensive and easy recipes for young people and budget-conscious cooks. It contains recipes for meals, snacks, and desserts using affordable ingredients like eggs, chicken, pasta, rice, and sandwiches. Recipes cover cooking basics and offer tips on shopping, stretching food further, and adding flavour. The cookbook was created after a #£21Challenge where youth groups challenged adults to eat on £21 per week, so it incorporates recipe ideas and favorites suggested by young people themselves.
The tone is encouraging and emphasises cooking can be fun and accessible. The recipes use simple instructions and affordable ingredients to appeal to inexperienced cooks. Visuals and layout make it visually engaging. Overall, it is a practical cookbook focused on helping young people and low-income households make tasty, nutritious food on a tight budget. The emphasis is on keeping cooking easy, enjoyable, and affordable.
