The message is simple: excellent food is available at affordable prices. You just have to know what you're looking for - and where to find it. Shrewd Food is the definitive guide. Inspired by the hugely popular website shrewdfood.ie, set up in 2009 by dedicated foodie and home-cook extraordinaire Elizabeth Carthy - who knows first-hand the challenges of feeding a family on a budget - this collection of over one hundred recipes for every occasion also includes information on: Shopping for best-value and quality; Shrewd cooking tips ; The shrewd cupboard; Seasonal cooking; Occasion cooking on a budget. In easy-to-follow recipes containing fresh, affordable ingredients, Elizabeth shares with us her knowledge of traditional Irish cuisine - learned from her mother - to shrewd recipes from Europe and the East, gathered during her many years living abroad. More than just a cookbook, Shrewd Food is a way of life.
Elizabeth Carty was born in Ireland but has spent most of her adult life abroad. She has had a lifelong interest in food, owing her initial palate development to her mother, whom she describes as a fine cook with a modest repertoire. Later, during her time living in London, Greece and Dubai, she was introduced to a wide array of cuisine styles, which inform her cooking today. She returned to Ireland with her son in 2000.
