The 1970s classic - more relevant now than ever

At a time when money worries are front-page news, Britain's most trusted cook, Delia Smith, is once again on hand with a wide range of tasty recipes that are cheap and easy to prepare.

Being frugal can be fun once you've learned a few simple tricks, among them:

  • Buying fresh produce when it's in season
  • Replacing more expensive ingredients with humbler alternatives
  • Experimenting with different cuts of meat
  • Being creative with leftovers.

Thirty-plus years on, the message of Delia's Frugal Food has never seemed more relevant. With over 160 recipes, from luxury soups to paupers' puddings, this new illustrated edition shows you how to eat well without having to spend a fortune.

About the author

Delia Smith OBE (born 18 June 1941) is an English cook and television presenter, known for her interest in teaching basic cookery skills. She is the UK's best-selling cookery author, with more than 18 million copies sold. From her first job as a cookery writer for the Daily Mirror magazine in 1969, Delia published the original How To Cheat at Cooking in 1971, then presented Family Fare for television.

Her series How To Cook (1998) was a huge success and the accompanying, million-selling books represented a publishing phenomenon. The television series reportedly led to a 10% rise in egg sales in Britain, and her use of ingredients (such as frozen mash, tinned minced beef and onions as used in her 2008 TV series), or utensils (such as an omelette pan), could cause sell-outs overnight. This phenomenon - 'the Delia Effect' - was most recently seen in 2008 after her new book How to Cheat at Cooking was published. Her fame has meant that her first name has become sufficient to identify her to the public, and the "Delia Effect" has become a commonly used phrase to describe a run on a previously poor-selling product as a result of a high-profile recommendation. Items to have benefitted from the Delia Effect include the Kenwood mini-chopper, Martelli pasta and Aunt Bessie's mashed potato.

In 2002 she produced her Vegetarian Collection, then The Delia Collection - Soup, Chicken, Chocolate, Fish, Italian, Pork, Baking and Puddings. Delia is a director of Norwich City Football Club, where she is in charge of Canary Catering, several restaurants and food and wine workshops. She is married to the writer and editor Michael Wynn Jones. They live in Suffolk.
