The other day I was looking through the gorgeous book "The Long Table" by Mary Moody -where the author looks back over her lifetime of cooking so far, and she talked about her mother's cooking, and showed some photos of old cookbooks her mother owned, including the Golden Circle Cookbook. I was inspired to dig out my Gran's old recipes which I have on loan at present. There, in the bottom of the box, was this!
The very book I had been reading about (and wishing I could see inside!)
It is full of wonderful treasures, such as this lovely spread:
and this um ... salad? .. sandwich?
... something for the children:
(Huh! Even a boiled egg clown wouldn't convince my girls to eat any of this!)
and a rainbow-effect salad.
How about some rissoles?
mmmm, yummy, pineapple on a bed of spinach!
This looks cute and edible, for once
and my personal unfavourite:
- pretty scary stuff!
Thank goodness the days of such creations is long past, but gee it has been fun looking!
For more vintage goodies visit here on Thursday!
