Steeped in history. One our original recipes celebrates the life of the revolutionary figure Ellen Wilkinson.
Ellen Cicely Wilkinson (8 October 1891 – 6 February 1947) was a British Labour Party politician who served as Minister of Education from July 1945 until her death. Earlier in her career, as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Jarrow, she became a national figure when she figured prominently in the 1936 Jarrow March of the town's unemployed to London, to petition for the right to work. Although unsuccessful at that time, the march provided an iconic image for the 1930s, and helped to form post-Second World War attitudes to unemployment and social justice.
