Description - Lillas Feast by Frances Osborne

Lilla's Feast is the true story of a woman caught up in a century of war and empire historyLilla was born in China in 1882 into a British colonial family. Her mother, Alice, was a lively woman with a love of cooking she passed on to her daughters. When the Japanese invaded China, Lilla was interned in a civilian camp. She sustained herself through semi-starvation by composing a book of recipes and household hints that charmingly ignored the realities of war. This precious cookery book, now in the possession of the Imperial War Museum, inspired Lilla's great-granddaughter, Frances Osborne, to embark on a quest to tell her story.
