The Daily Mail brought this out in 1949, rationing was still in place and apparently many young women hardly knew how to cook an egg - they might be able to till the fields and arm bombs and work in Spitfire factories but it seems cooking was in danger of becoming a lost art! What’s to be done? thought the DM, I know we’ll make compile our regular Patsy & Peter comic strip feature and produce a recipe book in cartoon form, and we can talk about having babies and gardening an allotment, all the things young couples these days should know about - ingenious eh? Scrambled sausage anyone?
Sadly it doesn’t credit the artist or writer or recipe contributor/s. Pity, I should really like to know who dreamt up stewed cucumbers….
