Frugal Food is currently available in paperback for £8.99, but the new edition, going on sale October 30, will cost £17.99.

Frugal Food’s relaunched will include pictures, as well as the original ‘Cheap Charter’, advising readers how to shop for value. All royalties will go to the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development.

Delia Smith said: ‘Frugal Food has never been out of print but is now more relevant than ever. It is my hope that a new generation faced with rising food costs will also find it helpful.’
