Feeding Tommy: Battlefield Recipes from the First World War


Feeding Tommy: Battlefield Recipes from the First World War Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

According to Napoleon, an army marches on its stomach and it fights on its stomach too. Yet, have you ever wondered how hundreds of men on the frontline are fed under fire or in the trench lines? During the Great War troops were trained to make meals out of the bare minimum of ingredients, to feed a company of men from only a mess tin and cook curries to feed hundreds only yards from the frontline. Feeding Tommy brings together recipes from the WWI with hints and tips from the Tommy Cook. Many recipes are illustrated with cartoons and drawings on how to assemble the perfect oven and kitchen tools at a moments notice from nothing. This book is the perfect inspiration for those who like to create an amazing meal anywhere, anytime, from anything. Includes dual measurements.
