The tale of Tatty Ed and Boggy McGrew

Potato Pete

During the Second World War, when self-sufficiency and recycling were the keys to a better quality of life, the War Department and the Ministry of Food applied great imagination to supporting and encouraging efforts on the 'home front'.
The foundation stone of this effort was the famous 'Dig for Victory' campaign, promoting home production of fruit and vegetables. Guidance leaflets and books were issued covering the growing and cooking of every imaginable thing.
The standard bearers for the campaign were a pair of cartoon characters - Potato Pete and Dr Carrot - and the jewel in the crown was Potato Pete's Recipe Book. The booklet highlights the humble spud and offers an amazing range of recipes to satisfy the needs of the day. For years the book was lost in the mists of time, side-lined by an audience greedy for colourful cooking.
We thought that the time was right to bring it back, reprinted in its original format and colours, and available to purchase from us for £1.50.
