Food Will Win the War: Minnesota Crops, Cooks and Conservation during World War I is an analysis of what is arguably the first large-scale social-networking effort of the Twentieth Century. These efforts led to Americans recognition as a world power based as much on the voluntary and humanitarian efforts of her people as the strength of her military forces.
One way to understand the efforts and impact food had on the War efforts is to eat some of the delicious foods made from recipes that scrimped on meat and wheat, saved sugar and fats.
In the blog postings that follow I will discuss the themes in the book and share even more of these wonderful, healthful recipes.
Food Will Win the War will be published in February 2010 by the Minnesota Historical Society Press..
