Times are hard. Family budgets are stretched and cooks have to be thrifty gourmets. In times like these, using simple ingredients to make nourishing and filling family meals is a must.
Chris Fennimore takes to the kitchen to prepare recipes used for years by thrifty gourmets. The new cooking marathon, AMERICA’S HOME COOKING: EASY RECIPES FOR THRIFTY COOKING airs Saturday, December 4 at 11 a.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11).
“Our mothers and grandmothers were the original thrifty gourmets,” said Fennimore. “We’re going to dip into that traditional kitchen wisdom and add a few new twists for EASY RECIPES FOR THRIFTY COOKING.”
Fennimore has collected more than 100 tips, tricks and recipes to save time and money while still creating delicious and nutritious meals. Frugal cooking techniques include subjects such as “A Chicken in Every Pot,” “Using Legumes,” “Comforting Casseroles,” “Hearty Soups” and “Grandma’s Wisdom.”
