Cracking Good Food Toolkit
Shrieking Violet Cookbook
He’s Leaving Home: The Shrieking Violet Guide to Hearty Vegetarian Cooking On A Budget aims to give ideas for cooking and eating for those who live and eat alone, using everyday, affordable ingredients.
Author Natalie Bradbury is an enthusiastic amateur cook and wrote the cookbook for her younger brother, who was leaving home for the first time. She was inspired by a remark that her brother (who really enjoys cooking) made, that he would like to eat less meat and cook more vegetarian food, but lacked inspiration.
The emphasis is on the classic, hearty, simple and solid – think potatoes, pulses, pasta, pies and spices – and the publication also suggests a range of store cupboard staples to make sure you are never in the unfortunate position of having nothing to cook!
