A very nice copy without any flaws. The Wartime Kitchen and Garden, which accompanies the BBC television series of the same name, recounts how Britain's wartime homes played their part in the success of the Home Front. It uses the personal memories of Ruth Mott and Harry Dodson (affectionately known for their respective roles as BBC TV's 'Victorian' cook and gardener), as well as tales and anecdotes. "Best Wishes Harry J. Dodson" writen on first title page. Illustrated throughout with vintage photographs and advertisements. Size: 7.5 X 10 " 224 Pages. Bookseller Inventory # 68199

About this title:

Synopsis:

Published to tie in with a BBC2 series and an Imperial War Museum exhibition, this book takes readers back to the days when Hitler's U-boats patrolled the Atlantic, and imported foods were scarce. For the men, woman and children left behind during World War II, life changed dramatically. People who had never gardened before had to start growing their own fruit and vegetables, housewives had to cope with rationing, and their families had to get used to unfamiliar foods such as spam and nettle soup. The book includes the personal memories of Ruth Mott and Harry Dodson (television's "Victorian" cook and gardener, respectively), as well as tales and anecdotes from many people who remember wartime cookery and "digging for victory".
