This week on Just Food Stories, Jacquie welcomes cookbook author Leanne Brown. Leanne takes a unique approach to her newest cookbook, Good and Cheap, a collection of recipes for people with limited incomes, particularly those on a $4/day food stamps budget. Jacquie asks Leanne to explain her reasoning behind authoring a cookbook with such a unique slant and also discovers the details that went into the regional planning (ingredient prices, recipes, etc) behind the work. Tune in to find out more about Leanne’s Kickstarter program and how to download her cookbooks for free. This program has been sponsored by the International Culinary Center.
“I wanted to show that there’s good, cheap food that can be modern, interesting stuff, very vegetable and fruit focused food.” [6:22]
“We need to purchase things in their most raw state and add value to that at home through your cooking process – you can easily get by on very little money.” [12:24]
