Sue Baker's view...

I’ve always been intrigued by the ingenuity displayed by the WWII housewife and that make-do and mend philosophy is particularly apt for today and the point that’s really salient, became healthier with making do with less. In The Ministry of Food you can find a good mix of gardening and kitchen advice and recipes with a generous sprinkling of historical background, well illustrated with reproductions from the 1940’s.

Synopsis

Ministry of Food Thrifty Wartime Ways to Feed Your Family Today by Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall, Imperial War Museum (Great Britain)

When war broke out in 1939, the government created the Ministry of Food to help families make the most of wartime rations. Today, in the face of rising food prices, a real obesity problem and ever increasing food miles, The Ministry of Food shows how we can all survive the credit crunch with a bit of wartime wisdom and ingenuity.
