Read full description of the books:
This cookery book about 'food for free' suggests ways of escaping the tyranny of the supermarkets; thinking of ready-to eat food as being something we can find for ourselves, rather than in a tin; and using recipes which are both excellent and unusual. Vicomte de Mauduit, a Frenchman living in England who had already published four cookery books, wrote They Can't Ration These in 1940, in response to the outbreak of war - after which English cooks might have to rely completely on squirrels, trout, nettles, samphire, beetroot, blueberries and camomile tea; 'for them this book will be a delight' wrote the TLS about this perfect present for the ecologically-minded.

Read information about the authorGeorges de Mauduit de Kervern was known as the Vicomte de Mauduit. General de Mauduit, his great-grandfather, went to St Helena with Napoleon; his father, Comte de Mauduit, was a cavalry officer and Chief of Staff; his mother, a great beauty, died when Georges, who had three younger sisters, was only 14. After his father remarried Georges went to school in England and then travelled widely - the subtitle of the autobiographical Private Views (1932) is "reminiscences of a wandering nobleman".
He was an aviator in WWI and worked on irrigation projects in Egypt. He made his home in England, France and America and had numerous well-connected friends in many countries; he was married (briefly) twice. He wrote four cookery books, They Can't Ration These (1940) being the last.
He is believed to have been captured by the Nazis after the Fall of France and to have died in the concentration camp at Dachau, in Germany.
