At Big Issue we like to find opportunities to make things better. When our longstanding vendors Paul Logan and Kelvin Gregory met Big Issue ambassador Sophie Winkleman last month, they got to discussing recipes and how good it would be if Big Issue carried a few.
Recipes can be for easy snacks or big dinners, vegetarian, vegan or meat. We’re delighted that long-time friend of Big Issue Jamie Oliver is launching the collection today.
Jamie Oliver said: “I’ve always been a big fan of Big Issue. When I heard about Paul’s wish to have low-cost recipes in the magazine, I wanted to share these budget-friendly ones.
- Jamie Oliver: ‘The power of democracy is measured by how we treat those at risk’
- Tom Kerridge and Marcus Rashford’s cheap and low energy recipe for tortilla pizzas
“With financial pressures as high as ever, knowing how to cook has never been more relevant. I’ve created these to help your money go further. Whether it’s making the most of your oven or freezer, or using store-cupboard ingredients, these flavour-packed favourites are nutritious and delicious.”
We want Jamie’s recipes to be joined by your cost saving – but delicious – tips! Get involved. We want to hear from you. Send your recipe to firstname.lastname@example.org and include photos too. But most importantly, get cooking!

Kebabs, curries and fish and chips all have a claim to be our national dish. Yet their survival is at stake.
