Product description


Emily Wight just gets it. In this wonderful book, she shows us that cooking doesn't have to be about fancy equipment or hard-to-find ingredients. She gives real-life tips on how to find affordable kitchen gear (the Army and Navy store has cheap but good cast iron -- who knew?!) and what ingredients to keep on-hand for quick, cheap, but delicious and creative meals. With easy-to-follow and utterly mouth-watering recipes like Leek and Bacon Barlotto, Sizzling Chili Noodles, Candied Pork Belly, and Black Forest Ice Cream, Emily shows us that being flat broke doesn't have to get in the way of eating world class food. -Gabi Moskowitz, Brokeass Gourmet (2014-12-18)

Well Fed, Flat Broke is an honest, funny, and wildly useful account of what it is to cook and eat in a real kitchen. I've been reading Emily's blog for years now, and I'm thrilled to have her solid knowledge, fantastic recipes, and spot-on humor right on my bookshelf where I need it most. I know I'll be reaching for it all the time. -Alana Chernila, author of The Homemade Pantry (2015-01-14)

I've found a kindred spirit in Emily Wight. Not only does she understand that messy cooks are best, she is the only other person I know who thinks a cauliflower-only version of Aloo Gobi is the way to go. With humor and practicality in equal measure, Wight delivers recipes anyone can make and culinary advice anyone can follow. -Charmian Christie, author of The Messy Baker (2015-01-15)

Wight's lighthearted, approachable style (not to mention easy-to-follow, affordable recipes) has kept her online readers coming back for seconds, and carries forward into the book. Its 120 recipes have been painstakingly tweaked, tested and 'obsessed over,' with every ingredient considered carefully to allow for the building of a productive, versatile pantry that won't break the bank. -Megaphone (2015-03-23)

Her attitude makes for a very forgiving cookbook, with recipes that are approachable not only because they're easy to make but because they're offered without judgment. Steeped in Vancouver's cultural diversity, the dishes are eclectic, incorporating Indian spices, kimchi, and other global condiments. -Georgia Straight (2015-04-08)

Well Fed, Flat Broke is stuffed to bursting with imaginative recipes, colour photos, and charmingly frank advice. Follow her instructions and you too can spend like a pauper but eat like a millionaire. -Where Vancouver (2015-04-08)

In Well Fed, Flat Broke, Emily Wight guides the reader through some mouth-watering and even indulgent recipes that won't break the bank. -Rice and Bread (2015-04-15)

Well Fed, Flat Broke is charming and useful -- a combination I'm grateful for. -Bookslut (2015-04-16)

Emily Wight makes a compelling case for cooking on a budget. She's beaming in every picture in Well Fed, Flat Broke, and her colourful, messy food and mismatched dishes look fantastic. -Toronto Star (2015-05-22)

Well Fed, Flat Broke features 120 recipes for mouthwatering mains, sides and desserts that jump off the page with beautiful retro backdrops (think Mad Men-level food styling), no-nonsense ingredients and sweet, funny, anecdotal intros. -Vitamin Daily (2015-06-05)
