From the PublisherPraise for Grandma's Wartime Kitchen by Joanne Lamb Hayes
"No wonder we won the war! This look back at recipes from the World War II home front will evoke memories for those old enough to call pasta 'noodles.'"
"The collection of recipes here reflects that creative spirit, as well as the patriotism so prevalent during the period. All in all, this book is recommended for those who want a taste of nostalgia, and a chance to try out some of the dishes our grandmothers were making 60 years ago."
—New York Daily News
"Part cookbook and part social studies lesson, Grandma's Wartime Kitchen tells how women...still strove to put nutritious meals on the table despite rationing."
"Joanne Lamb Hayes skillfully resurrects a slice of America's cultural history and ties practical skills more than 50 years old to today's lifestyle....Grandma's Wartime Kitchen is both culturally authentic and packed with charm."
—The Cleveland Plain Dealer
"A feast of memories as well as the comforting recipes that nourished Americans through the difficult years of World War II. Whether or not you remember victory gardens and ration coupons, you will recognize the recipes as family favorites and find this taste of the past as delicious as ever."
—Nathalie Dupree, author of Savoring Savannah: Feasts from the Low Country
"Grandma's Wartime Kitchen is much more than a nostalgic cookbook. It is a cultural history that takes us right back to 1941-45 when home cooks—many of them interviewed here—supported the war effort while feeding their families. Joanne Hayes has unearthed perfectly marvelous recipes...that show how women made do—and then some—with the scarcities of food rationing.
—Marion Nestle, Ph.D., M.P.H., award-winning author of Food Politics
"No other book gives the 1940s their proper place in our culinary history."
—Jean Anderson, author of Process This!: New Recipes for the New Generation of Food Processors plus Dozens of Time-Saving Tips, from the foreword
