Product Description

Product Description

Originally published in 1941, this delightful little book is in fact the precursor to Good Eating, published in 1944 and recently reissued by Macmillan to great acclaim. Packed with practical, nutritious and frequently delicious recipes by the Daily Telegraph's Home Cook, this is both a charming piece of nostalgia and a riveting insight into how Britain really ate in wartime. More than that, though, it is almost a kitchen manifesto for the twenty-first century, with its emphasis on cooking without wasting food, fuel or time. The recipes are specifically geared to making the most of home-grown fruit and vegetables, of making a little meat go a long way, or of making unfamiliar cuts and methods fresh and appealing. There is also a special section offering readers' own recipes. As the Foreword says, 'There can be no better basis of cookery than that provided by generations of housewives who have brought homely fare to epicurean perfection.' With the motto, 'Simple but Better Fare is the aim of the New Cookery' we, too, can waste not want not and make do and mend just as our grandmothers and great-grandmothers did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic recipes 25 May 2009
By C. FULLER TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
This reproduction of a wartime recipe book is both nostalgic and useful. In today's credit crunch world many of the recipes are ideal for cash strapped families because they provide a balanced diet from low cost ingredients. The recipes are easy to follow and can be adapted where necessary. The book also includes several advertisements/recipes from some well known names such as Weetabix. The wipe clean coating keeps the book clean.

3.0 out of 5 stars wartime recipes 15 Mar 2010
Format:Hardcover
comprehensive guide for young and old into wartime foods and rationing. I was looking for recipes for a WI competition for war time tea.As there were loads of titles to choose from pure luck that I picked this book. There is a lot of information about foods availiable and methods used on how to enrich bland foods.The book was in excellent condition and I will include it in my competition display.

5.0 out of 5 stars we'll Eat Again 3 May 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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)
