Victory in the Kitchen : The Life of Churchill's Cook, Paperback / softback Book

Victory in the Kitchen : The Life of Churchill's Cook Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

This is the story of a woman who was not a royal, not rich, not famous; someone who simply worked hard and enjoyed her life.

But while Georgina Landemare saw herself as ordinary, her accomplishments were anything but.

Georgina started her career as a nursemaid and ended it cooking for one of the best-known figures in British history: Winston Churchill. To him, food was central, not only as a pleasure but as a diplomatic tool at a time when the world was embroiled in war. With this eager eater and his skilled cook, ranging from rural Berkshire to wartime London, via Belle Epoque Paris and prohibition-era New York, Annie Gray shows how life in service - and food - changed during the huge upheavals of the twentieth century.
