In Retro Recipes from the 1950's and 1960's, Cutthroat Kitchen star Addie Gundry serves up nostalgic recipes from the Mad Men era, like Beef Wellington and Grasshopper Pie.
Post-war rationing became a distant memory, and the rise of home entertainment culture made for prettier, more complex food. With French influence from Julia Child, and elegant aspirational figures like Jacqueline Kennedy, suburban dinner parties went glam. Backyard barbecues, fondues gathering everyone around a table, and not to mention cocktail parties were booming.
From 1950's casseroles and hors d'oevres to more modern, adventurous dishes, there's plenty to celebrate and embrace! Each recipe is paired with a full-color, full-bleed finished dish photo.
Great recipes and a great gift for others
I made 2 dishes from this book so far and both were a HUGE with my family. It’s an excellent cookbook.
Great cookbook for my daughter who demonstrates recipes online.
The recipes are very interesting and I plan on trying a few, plus, I love these 2 decades
