The Kitchen Front

Author(s): Jennifer Ryan

Fiction | New Releases

From the bestselling author of The Chilbury Ladies' Choir comes an unforgettable story inspired by the true events of a BBC-sponsored wartime cooking competition.


Some wars will be fought at home . . .


Two years into the Second World War, and German U-boats are frequently disrupting Britain's supply of food. In an effort to help housewives with food rationing, a BBC radio programme called The Kitchen Front launches a new cooking contest - and the grand prize is a job as the programme's first-ever female co-host.


For young widow Audrey, winning the competition could be a chance to pay off her husband's debts and keep a roof over her children's heads. However, her estranged sister, Gwendoline, is equally set on success even if her own kitchen maid, Nell, is competing against her. And then there is Zelda, a London-trained chef desperate to succeed in a male-dominated profession - and harbouring a secret that will change everything . . .
