A super value cookbook has been launched by Yorkshire Coast Homes to help families who are struggling with the price of their weekly shop.
The book contains recipes which enable savvy shoppers to put together a meal for four people with ingredients costing less than £2.
Chief Executive Shaun Tymon said, “We know that many of our tenants find it difficult to balance paying their rent, heating their home and providing healthy, well balanced, nutritious meals for their families. “We recently challenged our managers to produce a meal for six people for under £5 and we were amazed with what they came up with.
“We asked the rest of our colleagues for their budget recipes and suddenly found that we had a whole book full!
“It was then a simple matter to pick out the best recipes and adapt them to suit a family of four.”
The dishes in the book are a mixture of family favourites, new ideas and good, honest home cooking.
The staff have tried them all and have rated them as delicious, while also confirming that the ingredients for each four-person meal can be purchased locally for under £2.
The Yorkshire Coast Homes Recipe Book is available, at £5 per copy, from the company’s offices at Brook House, 4 Gladstone Road, in Scarborough or by calling 0845 065 56 56.
As a special launch offer, all copies sold will be matched by an equal number of copies given away free to local people who may be unable to afford to buy one.
The project has attracted attention nationally as well as locally. For further information about the book please contact Andy Turner on (01723) 343056.
