MOB Kitchen: Big Flavors on a Small Budget

Having taken the social media world by storm with his one-minute, how-to-make recipe videos, MOB Kitchen founder Ben Lebus is revitalizing home cooking with delicious dishes that absolutely anyone can cook, all on a budget.

In this, the first MOB Kitchen cookbook, Ben's mission is to "mob-ilize" cooks everywhere, young or old, and to inspire them to cook delicious, nutritious, and inexpensive recipes. From Asian-flavored spaghetti meatballs, to the ultimate falafel pitas, each recipe is designed to feed four people on a budget--and there's something for everyone, whether your mob is vegan, vegetarian, meat loving, or health obsessed.

The core element of every MOB Kitchen recipe is that it is easy, affordable, healthy, delicious, and beautiful. Unlike most budget cooking sites, MOB Kitchen doesn't make any absurd store-cupboard assumptions. All that is expected is that you have salt, pepper, olive oil, and a small budget, nothing more. Plus, each recipe has a song that's perfect to play as you cook, and can be accessed directly through exclusive Spotify codes.

About The Author

Ben Lebus has always been passionate about food and learned to cook from his father, who ran an Italian restaurant. In college, he quickly saw that his roommates did not share his knowledge of cooking, and that was it--he decided to devise a list of recipes that would feed four people affordably, wanting to show that it was possible to cook well on a budget. He launched MOB Kitchen three months after he graduated. The "thrifty home-cook's unlikely hero," according to the Daily Mail, Ben has harnessed a strategic group of supporters and collaborators, including partnering with leading UK retailers and supermarkets. MOB Kitchen has over 170,000 followers on Facebook, and @mobkitchenuk has over 130,000 followers on Instagram.
