Bicycles,Bloomers and Great War Rationing Recipes : The life of Dorothy Peel OBE
This book covers aspects of the Victorian to post First World War period revealing how society changed during the First World War, when rationing put a strain on every kitchen in the country. Many of Dorothy's recipes are featured in their original form, such as the long forgotten Devilled Bananas, and wartime Potato Gateau. Other recipes include Chicken en Casserole, Cheese Pufflets, and delicious tea-time treats such as Feather Tart and Candied Pears.
Vicky Straker has tried and tested recipes from Dorothy's cookery books, and where appropriate amended them to suit modern tastes.
