Episode 2


This week we continue our countdown of the UK’s top 10 favourite family dishes, and we challenge chef Phil Vickery to wow us with his own super healthy, low cost and of course mouth-watering version. Which delicious dish will claim number eight in our countdown this week and what will our Save Money family make of Phil’s dish when they give his recipes a whirl in their own home kitchen?


Sian investigates what’s money well spent in our shopping baskets – this week she and nutrition therapist Ian Marber tackle vegan burgers. How do they compare in terms of nutrition and taste and which are best value for money? 


We'll also be unpacking the latest on-line craze of pre-prepared recipe boxes. How do their price tags compare to a normal shop and how do the recipes shape up nutritionally? 


And we’ll be asking, is it possible to get a taste of luxury at affordable prices? This time it’s smoked salmon.  Our group of trusty road testers will take part in a blind taste test of two award-winning products, one significantly cheaper than the other. Which will get their taste buds tingling?
