About the Author:
Vicky Straker’s love of Edwardian cookery was inspired by her great-great-grandmother, Dorothy Peel, who set up the Daily Mail Food Bureau in 1918 and taught millions of women how to cook during the war. Some of Dorothy’s recipes are included in this book. Vicky is also the author of Bicycles, Bloomers and Rationing Recipes. She has previously been invited to appear on ITV’s This Morning to speak about Dorothy’s recipes, and will be speaking at the Chalke Valley History Festival in 2016.
