Home Front – WW II Cooking Experience

During the war food was never wasted, and given the rising costs of your weekly shopping basket it is more important than ever to learn to cook from scratch and be more adventurous!

In the 1940’s people learned to preserve, pickle, bake bread and savoury crackers. Cakes and sweet biscuits made use of alternatives to butter and sugar, grated parsnips and carrots replaced sugar, with margarine taking the place of butter. 

During the second World War the Gower Heritage Centre site was used as a base by the Women’s Land Army, so what better place to learn about Victory in the Kitchen!

So let’s take a leaf from our grandmothers and great grandmothers books ..come and join me at the Mill to rediscover the fun, pleasure and delicious flavours from a time that survived the frugal years of WW11, healthy and seasonal which  has once again come back to fashion.

Learn to make Fresh Pickles, Bread and Savoury Biscuits.

You may want to dress up as land girls, headscarves, blouses and cardigans. Gentlemen join us as farmers or members of the armed forces, use your imagination. Or just come as you are, it will be great fun.

At the end of the course you will be treated to a themed Vintage Tea and time to sit down, relax and chat.

All you will need ..

Apron, a glass jar(with lid), a tea towel, a baking tray, containers to take home your creations and a sense of humour. We will supply the rest.
