Food memoir of teaching 1970s London teenagers -
A memoir of teaching cooking in an east London comprehensive in the 1970s. London is buzzing with new foods and restaurants but my students take old-fashioned CSE and O exams learning about Invalid Cookery and Awful Offal.
Reviews from Amazon
Elle - This is such a wonderful memoir that reminds me of my food lessons at school, but also so much resonates today.
Lesley - You don't have to be interested in food or education to enjoy Jenny Ridgwell's page-turning account of teaching a disruptive and unwilling class of teenagers how to cook food in the 1970s
Jenny - Really good book that is easy to read and gives a fascinating insight into life in the early 70's and the stereotypes that existed within the educational system especially in the subject of home economics.
Thompson - For those of us who went through this teaching era can completely identify with the outdated attitudes of the day. Jenny did something about it.
Caroline - I am a food teacher so I can relate to a lot of the content. Very inspiring!
