In typically groundbreaking fashion, Fiona Beckett sets out to revolutionise the way in which students cook and eat vegetarian food. This is a book that treats the post-Jamie generation to a feast of wonderful and affordable vegetarian recipes coupled with sensible advice on menu building, entertaining and nutrition. A book as much for the occasional meat-abstaining student as for the dedicated veggie household. The book comprises sections called 'Solo' (for beginners, or those living on their own or with limited resources); 'Sharing' (for those cooking for fellow students - or seeking to seduce fellow students!); and 'Show-Off' (for the more ambitious, eager to display their new-found cooking skills). There's also a section called 'Baking Therapy' (for the nostalgic, full of lots of recipes to remind you of home).
