This charming book recalls a time when the housewives of Britain were still making
do and keeping a nation `fighting fit'. It contains a vast collection of recipes, from
a classic fish pie to a `gooey' ginger cake, showing how even during the post-war
rationing period, food could still be adventurous and tasty. Go back to basics and
savour the tastes of the war years with this nostalgic collection of recipes. Illustrated
with fine drawings by the artist Edward Bawden.
