This display explores the visual history of food, drawn from the rich holdings of King’s College Archives and the Liddell Hart Centre for Military Archives, including examples of cookery and recipe books, menus and rarely-seen photographs covering topics as diverse as food education and nutrition, advertising, wartime rationing and peacetime excess.

Included online in its entirety is The Potato Pete Recipe Book for those who wish to examine directly what the Ministry of Food was advising for recipes in 1943.

The exhibition formed part of the Feed Your Mind 2013 Festival at King's College London.

PLEASE NOTE: This exhibition originally ran from March – September 2013 in the foyer of the King’s building, King’s College London, and is now available to view as an online exhibition only.

Visit King's College Archives and Special Collections for further information on the work of the Archives and its holdings, and to explore Archives’ online exhibitions on a wealth of subjects including art, science and medicine.
