Edna’s most requested talk is the “show & tell” lecture on the Wartime Kitchen.


The talk begins in 1939 at the start of the war and concludes in the 1950s with the end of rationing. The talk covers rationing, the introduction of lend lease food, the points system, victory gardens & salvage the 1940s word for recycling.


Edna finds food is one subject which all generations can relate to and perhaps explains the popularity of this subject. .


To complement the talk Edna also brings a collection of original food tins and household artefacts.


Edna has been fortunate to have performed with Marguerite Pattern OBE on a number of occasions who Edna often refers to in her talk.


Edna’s wartime kitchen talk can be seasonally adapted for Christmas.
