New softcover book published 2010, 338 pages, measures 18 x 18 cm.

I started writing this book after I found myself trying to juggle two seemingly opposing things: I wanted to provide good, nutritious food for myself and my family, while also watching my dollars when I went to the supermarket - Arabella Forge

More and more people are interested in eating well and in understanding where their food comes from. But where to start? Organic, free-range, local, sustainable: the choices can be overwhelming - and expensive.

In Frugavore, Arabella Forge shows that it needn't be so difficult. She provides a hands-on, practical guide to a new way of living, proving that frugal eating can also be flavoursome and fun. Learn how to access quality produce straight from the source, rediscover forgotten cooking techniques and create your own kitchen garden complete with compost heap and chicken coop.

Packed with recipes, resources, tips and tricks, Frugavore is a refreshing guide to living and eating well. Before you know it you'll be enjoying delicious, sustainable meals - and feeling healthier, happier and even a little richer for it.
