A recipe resource for home front hospitality

From an era when American women pulled up their trousers, slipped on their gloves, and stepped up to the plate comes this intriguingly hip companion to the ultimate 1940s kitchen. More than 200 recipes—from cooking goodies for soldiers to re-creating dazzling libations—and timeless tips on how to recapture the cool charm of the '40s kitchen fill this delectable guide to one of the most innovative times in home economics. Based on recipes and tips compiled from period sources and magazines, this resource includes advice for creating lovely desserts and balanced meals on a strictly rationed, shoestring budget—proving that what worked for the resilient women of World War II is just what is needed for today's girl (or boy) on the go.
