Student cooking survival guide

what is this topic about?

Written by Miss Mondo

Students are renowned for their poor cooking skills and eating habits. I'm sure if Family Fortunes had a questions about top five students meals, the survey would say pot noodles, toast, kebabs, pasta and beer. (Or something similar.) In fact, whilst researching this guide I came across a recipe for a 'pot noodle sandwich'. And even more bizarrely, a bonjela sandwich. Weird!

Luckily for you, I spent three years at uni studying the bizarre eating habits of my housemates, and cooking for them when they were becoming malnourished. I will attempt to pass on my wisdom regarding cheap, easy and tasty meals and hope that this inspires you to get in the kitchen!
