Yes occasionally I do bake and try foods off ration. I try not to do it too often but once in a while it satiates my need to experience new things and I do so love cooking!
I wanted to try a recipe I had seen online but convert it to a ‘Vegan Party Food’ and I also tried a very quick video style (one handed with my phone!) which I think I would like to adapt using 1940s music for some of my recipes going forward (although I think some of the iconic 40’s recipes deserve longer videos to tell the story!).
I’ll set a page up for occasional vegan recipes as I know there are a lot of people out there moving away from dairy etc because of lactose intolerance and ethical reasons and I really don’t want to have to create another blog or website when my main passion is historical cooking!!!
I’m catching up on life a bit here and really looking forward to creating some 1940s Christmas Recipes and also some wartime Christmas decorations too which I will of course photograph and video for the blog to share.
Lots of love
