Product Description

Review

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 (Gabi Moskowitz 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 (Alana Chernila 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 (Charmian Christie 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 (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 (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 (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 (Rice and Bread 2015-04-15)

Well Fed, Flat Broke is charming and useful -- a combination I'm grateful for. —Bookslut (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 (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 (Vitamin Daily 2015-06-05)

Local blogger and foodie, Emily Wight, offers a glimpse into her home along with a hefty dose of delicious recipes and thoughtful suggestions on maximizing your grocery budget. I agree with the other reviewer I've read of this book: I'd watch her cooking show if she had one! Thank you, Ms Wight, for your contribution to this genre.

I enjoy cookbooks that give me a personal view of the writer's life and this book delivers. Emily is humourous and doesn't attempt to appear to be perfect. She admits her kid can be picky, her house can be messy, she is often tired and broke. I LOVE this compared to the often 'perfect' cookbook cooks we see with their perfect homes, hair and makeup.
The recipes are comforting enough to be familiar but add some different spices and angles that allow them to be refreshing.

It's worth it to buy this cookbook for the humour alone; I only wish Emily had her own cooking show as she is very funny. The recipes are practical and not difficult to follow. Definitely recommend this book to new-ish cooks and those on a budget.
