Personalised Recipes from 1940s Newspapers - Gift Details

Reminisce 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.

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!

The History of 1940s Newspaper Recipes

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. Having absolutely 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 - a wonderful gift to remember the iconic ‘40s.
