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.

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.

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)

An interesting little book with lots of reproduced recipes and ideas. Not sure many would be very practical today but nevertheless an interesting addition to your bookshelf if you are interested in how Britain survived WW2 on coupons and limited resources.

So many ideas n odd combinations that work. Glad I can read about it rather than having to be that inventive
