Wartime Christmas Recipes and Traditions – 7th December

December 7 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm


New Course! There is so much to be learnt from the creativeness of the people who lived in Britain through the wartime years during WW2.  They had to ‘make do’ in so many ways.  Today’s course will look at how they cooked and baked at Christmas despite rations through these war years. We will look at how vegetables were used to inspire gourmet meals and how they managed without goose, turkey, cream or marzipan!

For lunch we will make Mock Goose with Root Vegetable mash, with Eggless Christmas Cake with Mock Cream to follow, along with a glass of wine.  You will be pleased that wine will not be on ration today!  Other recipes you will make and take home with you will include Thrifty Christmas Bread Pudding, Chocolate Oatcakes, Apple & Carrot Jam, Carrot Buns and more.

Quote from the Ministry of Food in 1943/44 – “…vegetables have such jolly colours.  The cheerful glow of carrots, the rich crimson of beetroot, the emerald of parsley – it looks as delightful as it tastes.”
