Off to uni or know a teen who is? Third-year student Rosie Shields cooks up a storm to find the titles freshers should get on their kitchen shelves

Going off to university is, for many students, the first time they've had to fend for themselves in the kitchen. While knocking up meals can be a daunting task, a good book can make all the difference between a mess-in-a-pan and a veritable feast.
We've spoken to current students to find the tomes they've found the most useful; from books for culinary novices on a budget to specialist gluten-free and vegan publications and books for competent cooks, we've found what we hope are a helpful selection.

For a book that will see students through from their first boiled egg to impressive dinner party dishes, we think it's worth splashing out on Delia Smith's complete How to Cook. Those on a budget can't go wrong with Joy May's Nosh for Students and veggies and vegans will find plenty of appetising dishes in Aine Carlin's Keep it Vegan.
