  1. Just watched you on BBC – what an inspiration. Then I read your blog and cried. We are cutting back but no where even remotely to what you are going through. Now it is Saturday kitchen live – they should have you on there with your amazing budget recipes much better for everyone. Not sure who can afford prawns, squid and salmon as an everyday dish!!! I do hope after all you have gone through something amazing happens – like a real basic cookbook?!
