'Zingy fresh and unexpected Annie Gray the ueen of food historians finds her perfect subject A book to devour' Lucy WorsleyThis is the story of a woman who was not a royal not rich not famous simply someone who worked hard and enjoyed her life Beginning in 1882 she ranged through life in the country life in the town life in her own house and in that of others She travelled married had children and a highly successful career For while Georgina Landemare saw herself as ordinary her accomplishments and the life she lived were anything but She started her career as a nursemaid and ended it cooking for one of the best known figures in British history Winston Churchill a man to whom food was central not only as a pleasure by itself but as a diplomatic tool in a time when the world was embroiled in a worldwide war Victory in the Kitchen is a culinary biography a life lived through food ranging from rural Berkshire to wartime London via Belle Epoue Paris and prohibition era New York Through one eager eater and one skilled cook Annie Gray contextualises twentieth century food through two figures who were both intimately involved with it Recipes include Georgina's German Kougelhof Curried Brains macaroons Boodles Orange Mousse de Maple and 'Chocolat Cake Good' Author Annie Gray is a food historian whose previous work has included “The Official Downton Abbey Cookbook” and “The Greedy ueen Eating with Victoria” As such she is the perfect person to tell the story of Georgina Landemare who worked for the Churchill’s from 1940 1954 and was the longest serving of their servants No mean feat as Churchill was not a calm man and servants tended to find his temper tantrums and habits – such as wandering around naked – a little difficult to deal withAlthough it is the fact of Georgina’s work for the Churchill’s which makes her a subject for biography the author makes sure that she is central to this biography She uses her subject as a way to explore the working lives of women the way that being ‘in service’ fell out of favour over the years – although Georgina’s father was a coachman none of her siblings followed her career path For career path it definitely was – Georgina worked her way up and unlike many women who tended to work in families with one or two servants she worked for the rich and powerful in bigger households and larger staffs Even if like the Churchill’s they struggled to pay for the lifestyle they were used to havingGray also makes interesting points about the way women were employed While French male chefs were the highest standard many households preferred female ‘cooks’ who were cheaper Georgina benefited from her marriage to Paul Landemare a French chef who was able to introduce her to many people and to extend her skills For Georgina was a uick learner and a hard worker When widowed she finally ended up working for the Churchill’s and unlike many was never flustered by the demands put upon her If Churchill liked his beef rare she would wait for him to enter the house and his bath before putting the beef in the oven so it was just so If guests arrived suddenly she would make food stretch If Churchill decamped from one house to another she wrapped food in shawls and simply followed himUnlike most of the Churchill’s servants she became than just ‘the cook’ and became the celebrated ‘Mrs Mar’ She was very friendly with Clementine Churchill and Winston often chased her to the shelter when she tended to stay behind – once saving her life when watching a delicate pudding she had stayed too long in the kitchen and the windows and wall were blown in shortly after Churchill had come to fetch her This also has much on the restrictions of wartime even if the Churchill’s were much less affected than most However gifts had to be accepted with some care and there were sometimes a backlash; for example one man sent a cheese and then advertised the fact that Churchill had received oneOverall this is a fascinating account of a woman who created a career for herself A working class woman she found herself in demand with the best households – cooking for the rich and famous and often visited by celebrities who would never come to dinner without popping down to say hello to Mrs Mar In a way she created a family outside of her own and stayed in contact with the Churchill’s throughout her life – Clementine Churchill suggesting she wrote a cookbook in the 1950’s for example which she helped her with This is a fascinating social history with enough about the Churchill’s to make it interesting for those reading it for that reason
