THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION COOKING WITH HEROES CHARITY COOKBOOK

The Royal British Legion

Earlier this month St Jame’s House and the Royal British Legion hosted the official launch of ‘Cooking with Heroes’ as part of the centenary celebrations for the Legion. With over 350 guests gathered in the elegant setting of Claridges Hotel in the heart of Mayfair, the event was a great success.

The Royal British Legion Centenary Cookbook, Cooking with Heroes is on Sale Now #RBL100

Cooking with Heroes focuses on 100 regions in which the British Legion has been active over the past century, presenting 100 delicious recipes as well as profiles of 100 military heroes specific to each region including that of Odette Halllowes.

Odette Hallowes (nee Brailly, then Sansom) volunteered to help with the war effort in 1939. As a native French speaker with a knowledge of the country, she was recruited as a special agent in 1942, assisting the French Resistance. Odette was arrested by the Germans in April 1943 facing interrogation and torture at the hands of the concentration camp guards before the camp was liberated by the Allies. For her remarkable bravery she received a George Cross, a Legion of Honour and an MBE.
