For many people, going on holiday is exciting because it means eating nice food at restaurants. To help people cope with the food shortages and lack of money for eating out, the government printed recipe books with ideas for meals and treats.
Look at document MAF 102/15 (1). There was a shortage of eggs throughout the war. This recipe collection for egg-free biscuits and cakes meant that people could still bake treats to take on picnics and to serve at tea parties. The war finally came to an end six years after it began, in 1945. Rationing of food continued until 1954.
