Recession cuisine [General]

2009 Jan 22
I am seriously interested in Foodies who have superlative recipes for what I call recession cuisine. That is, use the ingredients you have to best advantage, little waste, really good and nutritious food. And stupidly delicious. Remember, frugal does NOT mean cheap -- it means getting value from the products you buy.
I'm preparing a series of food articles for the Citizen, and appreciate your thoughtful input. BTW, Omnivore's Ottawa blog is more easily accessible now at (I know, it's a shameless plug, but it's also a way we can communicate.)
Kind regards ... Ron
