    The Hungry Student Cookbook Review

    We all know that starting uni can be daunting even for those with masses of confidence. Just one of the many things to consider is the prospect of cooking your own meals because that student loan will shrink fast with continuous phone calls to Domino’s Pizza, no matter how many times you had carrier bags and vouchers thrust into your hands during Fresher’s Week. A lucky few students will be able to cook confidently already when they arrive at uni for the first time but for those who haven’t been trained up in preparation, the internet or one of the many student recipes books may be turned to once the…
