A Year in 120 Recipes

Jack Monroe

Jack Monroe is by far one of by favourite cooks and I absolutely love their recipe books. This particular book was a gift from someone about a year ago, and I’ll be honest in saying that I was somewhat sceptical about how much I’d use it as it wasn’t filled with standard student recipes I was used to cooking.

However, the choice to organise the recipes seasonally makes a book which provides great inspiration for when you want to try something new but don’t know what to cook. This gives us a classic Monroe recipe book of delicious meals that can be made on a budget, with plenty of helpful tips on how to alter the recipe for simplification purposes.

Personal favourites of mine were the recipes for beetroot pasta and sweet and sour chicken, both of which were far more simple than anticipated but just as delicious as hoped.
