Economy Gastronomy Episode 6 of 6

Top chefs Allegra McEvedy and Paul Merrett have devised Economy Gastronomy, a system that shows us how to slash our food bills and eat better than we've ever done before. Their Economy Gastronomy system will show every household in Britain how to save time and money and still create amazing, flavour-packed food on a budget.

Douglas is a primary school head teacher in East London and Jonathan is a charity fundraiser. They have a baby daughter, Ellen, aged three. With their conflicting schedules, it's a struggle to cook food that all three of them want to eat at the same time. Ellen should have graduated to proper food by now but chicken dippers and still-frozen peas are still the order of the day. They are also overspending and a tad resistant to the notion that leftovers can be delicious.

And for home cooks everywhere, there are recipes like arroz con pollo, fresh-baked bread, pasta e fagioli, and a stunning easy lemon cream with berries to enjoy making for yourself.
