Overview

Churchill is well-known for his hearty appetite and love of food. This book gives a fascinating insight into what he ate during the Second World War, containing over 250 delicious recipes created by his personal cook, Georgina Landemare. From mouthwatering cakes, biscuits and puddings, to healthy salads and warming soups, it revives some forgotten British classics and traditional French fare. Including timeless recipes still popular today (coq au vin, potato salad, and chocolate cake) as well as some more unusual concoctions (Cervelles Connaught, or ‘curried brains’), it reveals the food that sustained Churchill during his ‘finest hour.’
