Another really interesting episode from Jeremy Cherfas. I’d never heard of the British Restaurants that were more common in the midst of WW2 than MacDonalds are now. Where they came from, what happened in different places and the possibility of a return were all covered.
At the same time, during both World War One and World War Two, there were concerted efforts to feed people. It started with centrally cooked meals that people took home to eat, but soon blossomed into a far-reaching network of government-run restaurants.
