During the Second World War, Marguerite Patten was a warrior on the kitchen front: a Ministry of Food Adviser helping people to cope with rationing, stay cheerful and make the most of their dried egg powder through recipe and information leaflets. Her three wartime and post-war (rationing didn't end until 1954) books are reprinted here, with new introductions by the author. We'll Eat Again, The Victory Cookbook and Post-War Kitchen are amusing, full of timely nutritional information, and the recipes make frugality into an art form.
