A 1940s café ... what would you put on the menu?

Out of the main bustle of the Coffee shop this is where people gather to share recipes and tips/tricks.

My parents married in 1944
My mother had not really cooked before her marriage, apart from a bit of domestic science at school, though not much of that I think
She learned to cook from Ministry of Food leaflets on how to use your rations and the book that came with the cooker
It was frankly pretty dire. And very repetitive. I was relieved when Fanny Craddock and Margaret Costa taught her to cook, initially through their newspaper columns, then Fanny and later Delia on the tv.
