Do Yourself A Flavour CoverDo Yourself a Flavour: 75 Easy Recipes to Feed Yourself, Your Flatmates and Your Freezer 

Fliss Freeborn


Easy, thrifty, delicious food with a glug of humour.

Brimming with over 75 recipes, plus tips and tricks for turning leftovers into fabulous meals in their own right, you’ll be covered for all situations, from those quick fridge-to-face moments, through to making a delicious dinner to feed your plant-based pals and raging carnivores alike.

Including dishes such as Puff Pastry Pizza Florentine; Sweet Potato, Spinach & Chickpea Curry; Mushroom, Ale & Lentil Pie, you’ll find din-spiration that doesn’t require a riot of expensive or bizarre ingredients, utilises the culinary skills you already have, and won’t ask you to go and buy more equipment for your (probably) shared, cramped kitchen.

Fliss Freeborn is Fortnum and Mason’s Cookery Writer of the Year 2023 for work on her blog
