Maggie's Kitchen, Paperback / softback Book

Maggie's Kitchen Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

A young girl trying to do her best for her country... When the British Ministry of Food urgently calls for the opening of restaurants to feed tired and hungry Londoners during WWII, aspiring cook Maggie Johnson seems close to realising a long-held dream.

After overcoming a tangle of red tape, Maggie's Kitchen finally opens its doors to the public and Maggie finds that she has an unexpected problem - her restaurant is too popular, and there's not enough food to go round. Then Maggie takes twelve-year-old street urchin Robbie under her wing and, through him, is introduced to a dashing Polish refugee, digging for victory on London's allotments.

Between them they will have to break the rules in order to put food on the table, and, perhaps, find love into the bargain...
