Stratford College lecturer marks VD Day with war-time cookery show

Ian Hughes 15th May, 2020 Updated: 15th May, 2020

A WAR-TIME cookery show was hosted by a lecturer from Stratford College to mark VE Day.

Shelley McGonigle, head of hospitality and catering at the college, discussed the types of dishes British people would cook during the Second World War.

Shelley explained: “I talked listeners through how to prepare VE Day-themed meals from start to finish such as Lord Woolton pie, egg-less fruit cake and chocolate pudding.”

During the one-hour broadcast on Welcombe Radio, she also gave tips on healthy eating during the lockdown, and how to avoid food waste.

Shelley, who has also done cookery demonstrations for the Food Festival and Home and Garden Show in Stratford, has been involved with Welcombe Radio for the last two years.

“They first contacted me to take part in a show on bread making, and I have been a regular guest ever since, doing shows on healthy eating, baking and chocolate.”
