Founded in 1915, the Women’s Institute will this year be celebrating the centenary of the organisation. To coincide with this incredible achievement, THE WI COOKBOOK: The First 100 Years, is published today. The book is a delightful mix of recipes and history, tracing the story of the Women’s Institute over the last century. The book follows the growth and progress of the organisation decade by decade, presenting contemporary recipes and social developments side by side.
The WI is synonymous with great home-cooking and domestic excellence, and the organisation has a long history of publishing books. The most recent publications have included VINTAGE TEA TIME, ONE POT DISHES and TRADITIONAL FAVOURITES, all of which offer traditional WI recipe collections in keeping with the ethos of the organisation.
For a sneaky peek at the recipes, look out for an extract in the Daily Mail Weekend magazine this weekend (7th March).
The WI COOKBOOK is published by Ebury Press.
