Award-winning cookery writer and anti-poverty campaigner Jack Monroe is back with Cooking on a Bootstrap: a creative and accessible cookbook packed with affordable, delicious recipes, most of which are vegetarian.

Winner of the Observer Food Monthly Best Food Personality Readers' Award.

Jack Monroe is a campaigner, food writer and activist, her first cookbook A Girl Called Jack, was a runaway bestseller. The sequel Cooking on a Bootstrap makes budget food fun and delicious, with 118 incredible recipes including Fluffy Berry Pancakes, Self-Love Stew, Marmite Mac ‘n’ Cheese and Hot Sardines with Herby Sauce.

Chapters include Bread, Breakfasts, A Bag of Pasta and a Packet of Rice, Spuds and Eat More Veg. There are vegan meals, sweet treats and what Jack calls ‘contraband’ dishes here, as well as helpful money-saving tips. With her trademark humour and wit, Jack shows us that affordable, authentic and creative recipes aren't just for those with fancy gadgets or premium ingredients.

This beautiful edition contains illustrations and original full-colour photographs to really make your mouth water.

These are wonderful and inspiring recipes. 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. I love this book – Jack shows how limited cash need not limit your ambition or imagination in the kitchen. It’s joyful, democratic and beautifully written, and I want to eat everything. Few people know what it’s actually like to live on the breadline. Jack does yet she still manages to create delicious, wholesome recipes that anyone can make with the most basic of ingredients and kitchen equipment. This wonderful book – written with Jack Monroe's typical energy, creativity and no-nonsense style – is full of things I really want to cook and (more importantly) eat. That the recipes frequently cost not more than a matter of pence per head is little short of remarkable. 'If she wasn’t already a legend . . . she has 100% reached national treasure status now.

“Great no nonsense book”

Lots of alternatives for those of us who don’t have a massive kitchen of weird and wonderful ingredients - lots of yummy pictures for me to drool over.
