Food & Drink is back, with Michel Roux Jr and drinks expert Kate Goodman.
Tom Kerridge joins Michel in the kitchen for Cheap Feasts and creates a mouth-watering meal for just £2 a head. The cost of our food is going up - rising more than three times faster than the average worker's wage. Tom and Michel are determined to demonstrate that you can spend less and eat well without sacrificing flavour.
Kate reveals the hidden costs in bargain basement bottles of booze and there's lively debate about whether it's possible to eat well if you're poor.
Food & Drink: the place to talk about food.

ARABELLA'S FINAL THOUGHT: I stand by everything I said in my piece. There is too much snobbery and elitism attached to cooking and eating well. It's only food and fuel. Preparing it and enjoying it should be easy and accessible to all - irrespective of income. Look to the continent for a healthy attitude to eating well.
