'This little book is full of nostalgic delights that,
paradoxically, seem more modern than ever.'

'will amaze those who were not around in those days, and induce
tears of fond memory in those who were.' -- Daily Mail

This book i'd be lost without, having got an original copy from the war i highly recommend you buy this book.

You'll never waste any amount of food when you start using this book and without trying you may even lose weight.

if nothing else its a great look at history.

This entertaining little book is a reprint of a wartime book by the Daily Telegraph. When first published it cost 2/- (2 shillings or 10p in today's money). It gives recipes and dishes that can be easily made from the limited wartime rations and what vegetables were available. Invaluable for people with an interest in WWII.

My Grand mother had an original volume of this cook book. Sadly on her death in 1976 they were disposed of and became lost.

Not only was there a certain nostalgia value in obtaining this volume and its companion fascimle. In these times of austerity the recipes remain relevant today for those of us on very restricted budgets. As a proffesional Chef its amazing how much of modern dishes classified as traditional were created during the rationing period (1940-1958)

This is a reproduction of the wartime publication. It is most interesting and just what I wanted.

The only small improvement that I think would have been helpful is a couple of pages in a prefix which gave hints and tips on adapting the recipes to our more affluent times.

I bought this for a friend as she was looking for this particular book in the shops and I suggested I try Amazon for her. She was delighted with the buy, the book was very good value for money, it arrived in excellent condition and the service was first class. Another convert! With thanks.

Some really good recipes here, looking for economy items and ways to eke out a small income it full of incidental advice as well as good plain food. AND - surprisingly enough some of the people who sent in recipes are actually listed with their full address would you believe. Find that surprising really although having got their mention maybe they were pleased about it and glad to be doing their bit. A super book, even just to browse through and definitely one to reach for if you've got some unexpected abundance to deal with!

By PatH on 4 Mar. 2013
Format: Hardcover
Nicely produced book of recipes of the times frequently giving the actual address of the person presenting the recipe. The recipes offer an insight into how people coped with rationing from breakfasts and other meals to 'treats' like cakes and biscuits. The ingenuity of some cooks is unlikely to be repeated by modern housewives! Having made a couple of the dishes and not found them wanting I plan to try several more (even though the book was originally bought as a teaching resource for Home Front)!
