Today Shakespeare Class made two wartime recipes. We have learned about rationing as part of our WW11 topic work and found out about how families coped with limited supplies of certain foods. During times of uncertainty and disruption, frugal, storable ingredients to make simple, nutritional recipes were so important to families.

We researched a number of recipes and decided to make ‘Everything In’ wartime stew and rock cakes. Vegetables were grown on every spare piece of land, during WW11, so were not rationed. We put a variety of vegetables in our stew, and also a small amount of meat which was rationed. We spent all morning chopping and preparing the ingredients. We also made rock cakes, which we cooked this afternoon. We then tucked into our wartime feast - which most of us thought was delicious!
