Offering a unique insight into the world of the 50s cook, we feature ads from the mid-20th century reminding us just how generations of cooks have evolved and how far our cooking choices have come. The chapters evoke the era - hors d'oeuvres, the milk bar, the tea room, the supper club - you'll be inspired to wheel out your hostess trolley and get cooking. With artwork from The Australian Women's Weekly's extensive archive, The Retro Cookbook offers contemporary updates on the glamorous dining of the 1950s and also provides a welcome reminder of forgotten classics.And remember whatever the era, the recipes are always Triple Tested(r) perfection.
