Last month the Archives team held the second Great War Bake Off, where we showcased the Archives’ wartime recipes from the Nutrition Collection. We were pleased to see so many staff and students take part, and to taste their creations, so to end the year the Archives service have found a few Second World War festive recipes inspire you this Christmas.
The leaflet below, 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.
If Christmas puddings with mock cream are not for you, then download a copy of our Great War Bake Off recipe booklet.
This and many other Ministry of Food leaflets are available to view in the LSHTM Archives as part of the Nutrition Collection. Please contact the Archives at email@example.com or search our collection using our online catalogue.
