The Guardian UK: Delia Smith on how to be a budget gourmet
Delia Smith is sort of a Julia Child in the UK - she made haute cuisine possible for the average person. Now she kicks off a weeklong feature of famous English cooks offering recipes for budget meals that is sure to be fabulous.
In her opening essay she talks about something which is near to my heart: avoiding waste in the kitchen. Studies show we throw away between 20% and 30% of the food we buy, so obviously cutting down waste is an important way to save money.
