Using predominantly ingredients from cans, the book's recipes -
rhubarb and custard pancakes, "tin-e-strone", beer-battered
sardines - are an exuberant rebuttal to the idea that good food
must be expensive, farm-fresh and unprocessed. -- Ruby Tandoh,
Tin Can Cook is a brilliant book full of recipes which are accessible to all sorts of budgets and easy to make. At a time when good food can often be seen as rather elitist or exclusive, Jack has done an excellent job to create recipes which are simple, straightforward and delicious. -- Felicity Spector
Jack Monroe is both cookery writer and tenacious campaigner . . . she understands first hand what it's like to be skint and have the desire to put something delicious on the table. -- Nigel Slater
