Top chefs Allegra McEvedy and Paul Merrett have devised Economy Gastronomy, a system that will show you how to slash your food bills and eat better than you’ve ever done before. Tonight the focus is on James and Claire Caddy and their five children. Their weekly food bill is a whopping �410 a week. Their eldest daughter is a pescatarian and their shopping is so chaotic it’s not unusual to find six jars of the same mustard in the fridge all open at the same time. The busiest kitchen gadget is the waste disposal unit because they throw so much food away. They hardly ever eat together as a family because life with five kids running in and out of the house 24/7 is so frantic. Food-lovers everywhere will love tonight’s recipes such as Warm Poached Salmon with Never Fail Hollandaise, Chicken Escalope with Rocket, Sage and Lemon, Creamy Garlic Rabbit Casserole and perennial favourite – Treacle Tart.
