Kitchen Front at the Imperial War Museum
A while back we featured the Imperial War Museum's The Ministry of Food exhibition, particularly the book which featured wartime recipes with which to feed your family on a budget today. If you're feeling too lazy to try these yourself you may be interested to hear that, for the run of the exhibition, the museum's cafe has transformed itself into Kitchen Front and is serving authentic recipes from the Second World War period.
Kitchen Front is the brain child of Company of Cooks and is named after a popular World War II BBC radio programme. While it's a intriguing project, it certainly won't be to everyone's taste. The idea of rationed portions and using margarine rather than butter not so appealing? Well, they've decorated the area with photographs of famous cooks from the period so you've got something else to look at other than what you're eating.
