I second Sam Sterns books. My 14 yr old DS can follow most of his recipes.

Thai green curry for the special meal? List of toast / jacket potato toppings? Sounds like a lovely idea OP.

Sam Stern books are ideal. Easy to follow.

I was bought a cookbook when I went to uni (many moons ago) called 'Grub on a Grant. Was good and used cheap & basic ingredients & skills.

Looking for inspiration that I can put together for a very very very very simple recipe book for my son for his birthday...

He is due to leave for Uni in September and able to use a saucepan/microwave and oven - and at a push a frying pan for eggs.. God - that sounds so pathetic doesn't it - but true !!!

His favourite stuff is all the noodles and pre-packed curry/ready meals at the moment ( when he is left to choose his own meals)...

I was thinking things like Spag Bol, Chilli, Wraps, Pancakes, Cottage pie (think Delia Cheats) etc etc and perhaps at the back of this book - one meal for a "special occasion" (???) - but the main criteria is that it needs to be be quick quick quick - who know what he may be missing on Facebook and Twitter whilst trying to cook a meal !!!

Not looking for lots of organic stuff or oodles of ingredients. I think (maybe incorrectly) that students don't think & care that much - they need simple stuff with minimal ingredients to make a meal.

Has anyone any suggestions/ideas that I could include ???

Thank You
