Christmas recipes in the Archives

I do enjoy baking at this time of year (the ginger biscuits I baked for the Library & Archives team disappeared pretty quickly) so I might take my inspiration from some of the Christmas recipes in our Nutrition collection:

Christmas recipes

 

This leaflet, published in December 1945, is from a series of seasonal recipes produced by the Ministry of Food during the period of food rationing in Britain during and following the Second World War.

This and many other Ministry of Food leaflets are available to view in the LSHTM Archives as part of the Nutrition Collection. Please see the Archives website for further information.
