This book brings to a new generation over 200 of the recipes which helped the nation celebrate on that special day and right up to the end of rationing in 1954.
Among the types of celebrations included are family celebrations, neighbourhood celebrations, the Home Services, the Volunteer Services, official celebrations-how the cities celebrated, how workers in factories celebrated, celebrations in the country and by our Allies.
The book also contains wonderfully nostalgic photographs taken at the time, together with delightful period illustrations and cartoons......'
