Not to be confused with: Moonraker, the 1979 James Bond film.
Meals for Moonrakers (published in 1954 by the WI), which I picked up in Oxfam in Salisbury the other day, contains mouth watering recipes for Sheep's Head Soup, Ham Cake, Hard Sauce, Egg Snow for Invalids, An Excellent Cake, Hermits, Braised Pig's Heart, Parsnip Wine and many others.
A very simple recipe from the book is as follows:
Artichoke CrispsDo you know that artichoke crisps make an attractive dish to serve with coffee?

These can be put in after heat has been turned off or with oven put to low.
Store in airtight tins.
