Food rationing was introduced in England in January 1940 after supply ships were attacked by German U-boats. The first food items to be rationed were butter, sugar, bacon, and ham, though restrictions were also eventually placed on meat, fish, jam, biscuits, cheese, eggs, and milk. In response, the Ministry of Food produced a series of "Eating for Victory" pamphlets that advised the general public on how to cope with these shortages. Designed to lift spirits in a time of shortage, these jolly leaflets contained a variety of recipes and cooking advice ranging from how to make steamed.

Food rationing was introduced in England in January 1940 after supply ships were attacked by German U-boats. The first food items to be rationed were butter, sugar, bacon, and ham, though restrictions were also eventually placed on meat, fish, jam, biscuits, cheese, eggs, and milk. In response, the Ministry of Food produced a series of "Eating for Victory" pamphlets that advised the general public on how to cope with these shortages. Designed to lift spirits in a time of shortage, these jolly leaflets contained a variety of recipes and cooking advice ranging from how to make steamed and boiled puddings and hints on how to reconstitute dried eggs. For all the hardship that rationing brought, the food restrictions resulted in many people eating more healthily than ever before. A nostalgic look back at one of the most difficult and yet healthiest times in history, this quaint collection is also a relevant guide to good eating today.

This is good just for reading pleasure, with its pictures from the propaganda pamphlets of the era, but it's also full of useful recipes for simple, basic cookery, using basic, inexpensive ingredients. I would think it might be good for someone just learning to cook, and would be helpful for making budget meals, as well.

It's interesting to read how differently nutrition was viewed in that time. Leaves me wondering how much of it was actually scientific understanding of the era, or whether it was a cleverly turned phrase for the benefit of the national war effort.

It's campy, entertaining, and ultimately useful!

It reminds me of how lucky I am that I can pop into the supermarket and just get what I'd like - no shortages, no rationing, no wondering about the future (like they had to). This book is a must for kitchen history buffs, and it's really useful, actually, in today's kitchen. If you're on a budget, this has some great tips. Also, the shortcrust recipe is really, really good for making meat pies.... it holds up.

I really love this book, it gives a little perspective into the hardships that people can (and absolutely did) work through. I only wish it had all of the leaflets that were issued during this time, or at least that the ones included were in order (because I'm picky enough for it to bother me...) Well worth the read!

I love the older books and I'm very interested in the WWll era. This book is very informative and very helpful. I would recommend it to everyone who loves to cook and also prepping for an emergency from weather or hazards.

I bought this hoping to cook up dishes I had seen in the Supersizers Go Wartime, but none of those were in the book. Plus, the dishes are more modern than I expected. Not what I was expecting, from a historical point of view.

This book is a treasure trove of information. If you've ever been curious as to how rationing worked for kitchens across the UK in WWII, this book is it. It's a collection of pamphlets that details suggestions for eating your vitamins, how to appease picky kids, and shows what grandma used to eat. It's been great fun to try out the recipes inside and learn about history in the process!

I liked this very much. The book is hard bound and full of information on England and WWII. Color pictures. Great book.
This a reprint of British home cooking advice at a time that everyone was coping with wartime rationing, which in England lasted longer than here in the US. There is some good advice in here..practical substitutions, good use of basic foodstuffs, economical preparation and meal planning. The tone of the book is somewhat dated but it is an interesting source of good information and useful today in poor economic times.
