Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
'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.
