A wealth of information we all might need in the near future. Recipes from limited ingredients, how to make dishes go further, feeding a family well, and use of nourishing food in preference to empty calories. Instruction on nutrition so that all may be fed well and not be too ill or tired to carry on day to day. Commonsense, but we all need to be reminded at times.

I love this little book! I wish more volumes would be produced to include more of the Ministry of Food's WWII leaflets. This kind of cooking from scratch, using simple ingredients, appeals to those of us wishing to feed our families both healthily and economically. It has been truly useful to me, as well as interesting from an historical perspective. The British people survived very well by following the guidelines in these leaflets, and so can we.

This book is so interesting if you are into historical cooking or the World War 2 Homefront. I can't wait to try some of the recipes and write more about my impressions of this book. It's seperated into sections so it's really a combo of a bunch of short booklets. The hard cover makes the book more sturdy so that is a nice bonus.

Since purchasing this book, I've actually gotten a fair amount of use out of it. Not only is the book of historical interest, the recipes provided in the leaflets are, if a bit bland, very healthy and economical. As several other reviewers have pointed out, it's easily used and very handy information to have in the current economic situation. The book itself is sturdily bound and clearly printed, with a very good cross-section of pamphlets chosen to reflect a variety of foods, cooking techniques, and nutritional information. My only tiny quibble is that the editor saw fit to include a table of contents, but not to label the pages with numbers, which rather defeats the purpose.
My experience with actually cooking many of the recipes provided is that some of the recipes are not immediately to current American tastes (again, they lack the amount of spices and seasonings we're accustomed to), and a few things didn't turn out quite how I'd expected, most notably the Mocha Whip recipe included on page 19 in the One Pot Meals leaflet. Generally speaking, however, this was a fantastic purchase and I heartily recommend giving it a try. Well worth the $15. I can also recommend the companion volume, Make Do and Mend, for the same reasons as this one.
