Georgina Landemare saw herself as ordinary, although her accomplishments – and the life she lived – were anything but. She started her career as a nursemaid and ended it cooking for 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 Epoque Paris and prohibition-era New York.
