In the Company of Cooks

The Company of Cooks are supporting and promoting an  interactive exhibition at the Imperial War Museum currently, in which leading chefs cook live to demonstrate how we can make the best use of ‘free’ food and make it last.

From The Company of Cooks:

‘The exhibition opened on the 11th February 2010 and runs until January 2011. It  will be an engaging and informative temporary exhibition examining Britain’s messages about the production, distribution and consumption of food during the Second World War. It will also look at the effect food had on the entire nation and its relationship with current agendas relating to sensible eating and thrift.’

The next live exhibition is this Sunday at 3pm, here’s hoping I make it.

The Imperial War Museum is also maintaining a blog revolving around the issues above, which is well worth a look at: http://food.iwm.org.uk/
