Sophie Gray is the destitute gourmet. In response to a significant drop

feed two fussy children and satisfy two foodie adults who liked to entertain friends. She became aware of the increasing dependence of domestic cooks on ready-made foods and realised that basic cooking skills were being forgotten.
Destitute Gourmet echoes current cooking trends and also aims to encourage home cooks to innovate and improvise. What do you really need in your pantry? What can you easily do without? How can you create gourmet meals to enjoy with your family and friends and not have to live on bread and water for the next week?

About the author
is the destitute gourmet. Sophie is a busy working Mum who constantly strives
to save money and do the best for her family. In response to a significant drop
in family income, she was forced to reconsider her grocery budget. She needed to
feed two fussy children and satisfy two adults who adored good food. Sophie's
background in restaurant cooking proved helpful when it came to creating
delicious tasting, terrific-looking, healthy food from inexpensive ingredients.
She made it her mission, not only to reduce her own grocery bill, but to share
her knowledge, resurrect those basic cooking skills and encourage other cooks to
put them into practice. The result is a range of stylish, healthy and above all
delicious recipes that no frugal cook should be without!
