lots of infomation, but a bit disappointed at the amount of ingredients used in some of the recipes, you would have had to save your rations up for weeks to make them

5.0 out of 5 stars Rationing Recipes Rock! 28 Mar 2006
By JMR - Published on
This book includes a previous book that Ms. Patten wrote "We'll Eat Again" (which I already own). She provides some fabulous recipes of homely cooking used by the British housewife during the rather trying times of WWII and thereafter. I love the recipes, I love the little history lessons throughout and the samples of advertising from the era. It's a time that's fast fading from our memories so I'm glad there are books like this to remind us of what life was like. My favorite comment from Ms. Patten is in the beginning of the book where she suggests we try the recipes to see that many of them are (indeed) tasty while others will show us why we're all glad we no longer have to consume them! I've tried several of the recipes (vinegar cake is a is the Potato Jane....the onion/apple chutney was a huge hit last winter). I can't bring myself to try the sheep's head stew though. It's amazing how they made do and stretched things and everyone ended up healthier than before the war. This book is a wealth of information - read and enjoy!
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Wartime Cookbook 1 Oct 2012
By Book Geek Review - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this - its a great resource for WWII recipes and has short introductions that put things in context. It wasn't as big as I thought it would be, and I am still looking for something with more recipes and more information. Even so, if you're at all interested in wartime cooking/rationing, its a great book.
