Retro Food Fiascos
A Collection of Curious ConcoctionsBook - 2004
Banana Meatloaf Tomato Soup Cake, and Spam Smoothies -- borderline tummy-turners to downright doubtful -- Retro Food Fiascos is a showcase of culinary curiosities from some of America's favorite magazines, cookbooks, and food companies. Actual recipes and images of some of the most claring dishes to ever leave the kitchen combine with commentary and quips to pay homage to those foods we'd rather forget. In the name of nutrition and creative cooking, the marketing and recipe writers of the 1950s cooked up some very suspicious combinations. Innovations in food processing and new products tempted everyone from the amateur cook to the professional chef to play with their food. And the results? We'll let you be the judge. Book jacket.
