Victory in the Kitchen: The Life of Churchill's Cook

Author(s): Annie Gray

Biography/Memoir

The story of the twentieth century through one woman's life and the food she cooked for our most famous Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. This is the story of a woman who was not a royal, not rich, not famous; someone who simply worked hard and enjoyed her life. But while Georgina Landemare saw herself as ordinary, her accomplishments were anything but. Georgina started her career as a nursemaid and ended it cooking for one of the best-known figures in British history: Winston Churchill.To him, food was central, not only as a pleasure but as a diplomatic tool at a time when the world was embroiled in war.

With this eager eater and his skilled cook, ranging from rural Berkshire to wartime London, via Belle Epoque Paris and prohibition-era New York, Annie Gray shows how life in service - and food - changed during the huge upheavals of the twentieth century.
