Hunger during World War I

Gerstenmehl, Brennesseln und Zichorien - Vom Essen in Kriegszeiten

In the years from 1914 to 1918, hunger was a constant companion. The First World War had to be won not only at the front, but also in civilian life. And so kitchens became the battleground for women. Hunger was not an easy enemy to fight. Wartime cookbooks were written, recipes printed on travel tickets and substitute foodstuffs were made available. Stinging nettles instead of spinach, chicory coffee or dried dandelion roots instead of ground coffee and barley flour instead of wheat flour. Now women were supposed to work wonders with these generally bad quality ingredients.
