A perfect and irresistible idea: A cookbook filled with delicious, healthful recipes created for everyone on a tight budget. While studying food policy as a master’s candidate at NYU, Leanne Brown asked a simple yet critical question: How well can a person eat on the $4 a day given by SNAP, the U.S. government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program informally known as food stamps? The answer is surprisingly well: Broiled Tilapia with Lime, Spicy Pulled Pork, Green Chile and Cheddar Quesadillas, Vegetable Jambalaya, Beet and Chickpea Salad—even desserts like Coconut Chocolate Cookies and Peach Coffee Cake. In addition to creating nutritious recipes that maximize every ingredient and use economical cooking methods, Ms. Brown gives tips on shopping; on creating pantry basics; on mastering certain staples—pizza dough, flour tortillas—and saucy extras that make everything taste better, like spice oil and tzatziki; and how to make fundamentally smart, healthful food choices. The idea for Good and Cheap is already proving itself. The author launched a Kickstarter campaign to self-publish and fund the buy one/give one model. Hundreds of thousands of viewers watched her video and donated $145,000, and national media are paying attention. Even high-profile chefs and food writers have taken note—like Mark Bittman, who retweeted the link to the campaign; Francis Lam, who called it “Terrific!”; and Michael Pollan, who cited it as a “cool kickstarter.” In the same way that TOMS turned inexpensive, stylish shoes into a larger do-good movement, Good and Cheap is poised to become a cookbook that every food lover with a conscience will embrace.… (mais)

3.5/5 stars. Great recipes, many very simple, with gorgeous photos. The author includes tips on shopping "good and cheap" and also suggests basic necessary kitchen tools. One of the things I like best about this cookbook is that, among the basic recipes, the author also gives suggestions about how to make one standard recipe with many flavor varieties, such as the great list "things on toast." Even if you aren't looking to cook on a budget this cookbook will help you add variety to your meals. (Provided by publisher) ( )

Love how she breaks it down by price per meal. For someone on a strict budget, this is really helpful. I've made a couple of the recipes and enjoyed them so far. Full review to come once I try more of the recipes! ( )

This book should be given to every home cook, the earlier the better! Good and Cheap is a revelation! I was pleasantly surprised at the wealth of information presented so clearly and completely. Any level of cook would benefit from having this in their kitchen.

Inside is a abundance of useful tips and methods using a great variety of inexpensive, delicious ingredients. There are so many new recipes covering many styles of cooking that makes budget cooking fresh and exciting, for all ages and flavor preferences.

Besides fully formed meals, this book also includes core recipes which are not difficult, but are great money-savers, and better tasting than expensive store-bought items. Big batch cooking, pickling, and maximizing leftovers are covered. Simple ways to amp up the sophistication of basic ingredients are attractively illustrated.

This book is an invaluable reference tool that should be in every home cook's kitchen. It is hard not to include more exclamation marks when writing about this book.

A practical and useful book with a great backstory and "mission."
The attractive design — and the charitable mission — makes it a great gift book. ( )

While the government offers an extensive group of free recipes for SNAP users (http://www.whatscooking.fns.usda.gov/search/solr-results/im_field_term_program/s...), this book is still a welcome resource. The tone is positive but never preachy, and I appreciate the plentiful photographs and simple yet sound advice about shopping, storing, and (in general) preparing food frugally without sacrificing nutrition or enjoyment. It's also nice to see meals that take inspiration from cultures where thrift is a frequent necessity (Mexico, China, Eastern Europe, the Philippines, etc.).


My only quibbles are that the expense of some ingredients, while cheap on a per serving basis, can be prohibitive for many people; the assumptions about equipment, ingredients, and knowledge available to the reader, while largely recognized by the author, could prove burdensome for some readers (especially outside of major urban centers); and finally some of the recipes themselves could be improved (e.g. less sugar in the pancakes, more cooking time for the collards in the version of Hoppin' John, etc.).
