The Perfect Recipe Book For Every Type Of Student

On a Budget:

A Girl Called Jack: 100 Delicious Budget Recipes by Jack Monroe

Most students will relate to the story of single mum Jack, who found herself with just £10 a week to spend on food, forcing her to get creative with her shopping and cooking. The result is ‘A Girl Called Jack’, a savvy recipe book which demonstrates that good food doesn’t have to be all about time and money.

Jack’s determination to make the most of ingredients makes this book a perfect investment for students who often find it impossible to use all three peppers in a packet or a whole box of eggs, but could really do with not wasting that money.

Going Vegan:

Students Go Vegan by Carole Raymond

Whether you’re a committed vegan or you’re just considering giving it a go, having access to quick and easy vegan recipes will help make vegan life easier.
