Ration Book Britain
Friday 15th January at 5pm
This series sees chef and passionate British food lover Valentine Warner turn culinary time traveller to explore the food and recipes that kept the country alive during rationing.
In a classic 1940s kitchen, Valentine uses the very same tips and tricks millions of housewives used to make what little food they had go a long way and taste delicious.
He’ll find that some recipes still have value today for people who want big flavour without a big bill, and he’ll also discover some recipes that are best left to the past. Rationing or no rationing, each dish Val cooks must be fit for the heroes of WWII because at the end of show he will host a meal for some very special invited guests.
With recipes and the stories behind them, Wartime Kitchen is the ultimate guide to living within your means, as well as posing the question: can modern day cooks learn anything from the Spirit of 1940?
