So you got the points, you have your Student ID card, you've joined two debating societies and you have paid the deposit on your flat, now you just have to learn to feed yourself.

I am an entirely self-taught cook and my passion for cooking began in my student days. In first year, I mostly cooked sausages, spaghetti bolognese and beef stew but in second year I acquired a girlfriend who was a fantastic cook and also loved when I cooked for her. Strangely, it also helped when she dumped me later that year as I cooked even more to distract myself from my broken heart.

Over the next three days I will give you simple recipes that can be adapted and improved upon and all of them can be cooked for very little money. (Please note prices are approximate).
