Personalised Recipes from 1940s Newspapers - Gift Details

Reminisce on food history of the 40s with our Recipes and Cookery Ideas from 1940s Newspaper Book. The 40s was a major historic decade across the world, significantly defined by the British war effort that characterised the culture in the UK. But this decade also produced riveting recipes and food ideas available in this fantastic edition. With recipes like homemade 'Apple Mint Jam', digest and learn about the variety of food from a challenging period of rationing that taught Britain to make food go a long way!

As part of our book’s unique design, our hardback editions feature your choice of Name embossed in gold on the front cover as well as your pesonalisation on the inside cover whilst the softback version includes your Name and Message on the opening page only. With no embellishments or adjustments, this book mirrors the condition of the newspaper as it was first printed, including original adverts and tips for the reader. This recipe book reflects how the brave people of the 40s dealt with the effects the war had on food and rationing that began in 1940 until its end in 1954. Newspapers wanted to inform their readers of positive news of the period, and this newspaper book remembers this time in history, where food became iconic during what was a difficult time. From health and beauty advice for fabulous housewives to uphold their grand presence, the recipes of this decade were aimed at the domestic goddess. A wonderful gift to remember the iconic 40s, personalise this present by adding the recipient's Name and Message on the opening page.
