It was one of a number of recipes commended to the British public by the Ministry of Food during the Second World War to enable a nutritional diet to be maintained despite shortages & rationing of many types of food, especially meat. It was named after Frederick Marquis, 1st Lord Woolton (1883-1964), who became Minister of Food in 1940."
