Imperative letter

Sir: Following my column on eating cheaply (Food, 29 August), 1 have received more letters than I can reply to individually.

The most common enquiry is where to find various ingredients. Obviously I haven't a particular, indeed any, knowledge of Doncaster or Glasgow, let alone German towns, but the principles for discovering good shops can be found in my column this week.
