Churchill was well-known for his hearty appetite and love of food, remarking ‘It is well to remember that the stomach governs the world’.

‘Mrs Landemare’s food is distinguished. She is an inspired intuitive cook’ Lady Churchill.
At the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939, Georgina Landemare devoted her full-time services cooking for the Churchill family, declaring ‘this will be my war work’. Recognised as one of the most prominent cooks in Britain, Mrs Landemare can be described as the ‘celebrity cook’ of her day, specialising in creating sumptuous feasts for England’s nobility. She worked hard cooking for the Churchill family throughout the Second World War and was told by the Prime Minister on VE night that he could not have managed through the war without her.
As activities take place around the world in 2015 to celebrate the life and legacy of Sir Winston Churchill, this new cookbook contemplates the appetite of the inspirational war leader and family man; embarking on a culinary journey that begins behind the famous door at 10 Downing Street.
Containing over 250 delicious recipes, Churchill’s Cookbook revives some forgotten British classics and traditional French fare such as coq au vin, potato salad and chocolate cake as well as some more unusual concoctions such as Cervelles Connaught, or ‘curried brains’. For talented chefs and casual cooks alike the easy-to-follow recipes ensure meals fit for a prime minister.
