What’s it about? Deja Food is a return to the food of times past. It celebrates how we used to eat: giving time and care to less expensive cuts of meat, being thrifty where possible and using up leftovers to their fullest extent. Deja Food is frugal, but absolutely full of flavour and plenty of nostalgia too.
Recipes we love: Bacon and Herb Pasties, Bubble and Squeak, Gammon Pie.
Good book for: Nostalgic cooks who love to make classic British recipes at home. Plus this is an excellent cookbook for those with a keen interest in food history.
