The new bi-monthly magazine BBC Australian Good Food proves that eating well doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg, with 30 great meals for under $5 per serve.
The rising cost of a weekly shop is linked to global trends, and knowing the reasons why prices are on the up and up can help put that pain in the hip-pocket into perspective. This month BBC Australian Good Food magazine takes a good look at the big picture and has helpful tips and tricks for cutting costs.
With wallet-friendly recipes clearly marked, making the most of the weekly grocery shop is deliciously simple:
- Barbecued Chicken Risotto, only $3.35 a serve
- Penne with Gorgonzola & Walnuts, only $2.95 a serve
- Cardamom Lamb & Spinach Pilaf, only $4.30 a serve
- Argentine-Style Steak with Corn Salsa, only $3.95 a serve
- Mongolian Beef Stir-Fry, only $3.15 a serve
Summer also calls for food-in-a-flash meals and the Good Foodies at the magazine promise to make cooking Aussie classics a breeze:
- perfect steak and prawns on the barbie
- top picnic food for the holidays
- healthy quiche lorraine.
Food tastes sweeter when it’s home-grown, and you can encourage the kids to grow and cook their own healthy strawberries over the holiday season. Good Food shares the secrets for berrylicious fun in the garden and the kitchen, including a 15-minute fresh strawberry jam recipe.
