In the Company of Cooks

Dig for Victory, one of the most successful campaigns ever created in Britain was designed to thwart Germany’s plans to starve Britain into submission in the Second World War.

Dig for Victory is strikingly relevant again today, when so many people are keen to grow their own food, albeit for rather different reasons.

Today the enemies might be climate change, the credit crunch and junk food rather than German U-boats, but then it was a necessity, a patriotic duty which people were glad to perform and it made them feel that they were making an important contribution to the war effort.

Sophie Grigson and Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall will explore how to make the most of your vegetable patch and the produce you grow.
