In this world of celebrity chefs, social media and aspirational cooking, it's easy to be overwhelmed by conflicting information. One minute we are told to cook seasonably and shop locally, the next to hunt down unusual ingredients. Munch Lunch & Dinner cuts through all this noise. Every recipe uses ingredients found in your store cupboard or local supermarket. No need for specialist equipment either, most use just one saucepan. There are clear guides on how to shop and how to substitute expensive ingredients without sacrificing taste.
Munch CIC is passionate about fighting health inequalities, empowering communities and helping individuals make healthy changes and learn about sustainable nutrition. The book was born out of Munch Community Cooking workshops and courses which they run to help people develop skills and confidence needed to cook from scratch. Munch Lunch and Dinner was designed as a take home tool for the low income and disadvantaged groups they regularly work with. However, they realised many more people would benefit from their back-to-basics approach to home cooking and meal planning.
This cookbook is more than just recipes. It guides you through stocking cupboards with versatile ingredients and batch cooking meals for future use. There are tips for reducing waste and making food go further by using leftovers. Throughout the book there is nutritional information and advice about eating sustainably including ways to introduce more plants into your diet.
