Wartime Kitchen : Food and Eating in Singapore (1942–1950) captures the resilience and adaptability of a people faced with limited resources and shortages during the Japanese Occupation and in post-war Singapore, never before examined in detail. Presenting in-depth research alongside anecdotes, personal reminiscences and a good collection of wartime recipes and food-related vignettes, the book vividly documents a crucial decade in Singapore’s history with a particular emphasis on eating—an activity famously high in the priorities of Singaporeans. Atmospheric and even nostalgic, the book also examines how hunger and the need for food became an impetus for culinary creativity.
