This 1940s advert for Three Cook’s Soups, King’s Road, Reading, London, paints an interesting picture of soups in vogue a year after the Second World War had ended. Printed in 1946 in Countess Morphy’s Kitchen Encyclopedia, it lists favourites still popular today such as Tomato Soup, Celery, Green Pea and Mulligatawny. Mock Turtle, Hare and Kidney have disappeared from our supermarket shelves…I wonder why! Should you take the adverts advice and ‘Ask your usual Grocer today’, they may look at you somewhat strangely, I think.
