Rationing in the Second World War:
Spuds, Spam and Eating for Victory
Paperback book By Katherine Knight.
240 pages. Illustrated with black & white photos and images.
The battle to feed the nation fed during World War II was waged by an army of land workers and resourceful housewives. The rationing of food, clothes and other items ensured that everyone had a fair share. Katherine Knight looks at how experiences of rationing varied between rich and poor, town and country; and how clever cooks often made a meal from poor ingredients. This book reveals delicacies such as carrot jam, oatmeal sausages and spam fritters; with recipes from the period. The book also includes stories of what it was like to eat for Victory.
