"Eggs Or Anarchy" By William Sitwell - Book Launch Party

William Sitwell is the editor of Waitrose Kitchen Magazine and is featured on all strands of MasterChef in the UK (MasterChef, MasterChef: The Professionals, Celebrity MasterChef and Junior MasterChef) which is distributed worldwide.

Eggs Or Anarchy tracks the life of Lord Woolton, Minister of Food, whose task it was to organise and distribute adequate nutrition in Britain in the face of shortages which resulted from blockades and the sinking of Atlantic supply ships during the Second World War. The story of how the country devised a fair system for doling out rations is well known, but author William Sitwell paints a picture of perhaps the only man who had the talents to do it. In achieving his task, it could be argued that Woolton made the most important single contribution to the war effort and vastly improved the health of a whole nation in the process.

William Sitwell, a judge on Master Chef: The Professionals, described the influence of the chain as "revolutionary" in the UK, claiming that it broke down conventional meal times and enabling people to "eat things that they wanted when they wanted".
