The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Sixties Cookbook Summary

The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Sixties Cookbook: More than 100 Retro Recipes for the Modern Cook by Heather Maclean

As Don Draper famously said,"Nostalgia: a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone." Nostalgia, of course, also calls to one's appetite. Thanks in part to the popular series Mad Men , fans are discovering the classic cuisine of the 1960's whether to revisit the favourite recipes of their childhoods or to celebrate the comforting, sometimes kitschy, always-satisfying dishes of the era, including: ? Waldorf Salad ? Sweet and Sour Meatballs ? Beef Stroganoff ? Steakhouse Creamed Spinach ? Buttermilk Dinner Rolls ? Cherries Jubilee ? Daiquiri Lime and Gelatin mould ? Classic cocktails such as Blue Hawaiians, Brandy Alexanders, and Manhattans ? And many more! Each recipe is adapted for the modern palate, with less fat and healthier ingredients than in the originals (no more bacon fat as a kitchen staple!). full-colour photographs showcase the food, proving that retro cuisine can be sophisticated and delicious. The Sensational Sixties Cookbook will also provide tips on hosting the ultimate sixties soiree, complete with menus, music playlists, and table decorations. So grab a swizzle stick, put Bobby Darin on the turntable, and get cooking- sixties style!

The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Sixties Cookbook Reviews

Cheryl Krocker McKeon, bookseller "Readers learn how "Betty Crocker" was born, why Warhol painted soup cans and how "soul food" got its name. For the true '60s buff, Rodgers and Maclean give tips for a party the Mad Men cast would love, including menus, drink recipes, fashion tips (a hostess will accent her dress with pearls) and proper serving pieces (a Lazy Susan and chip-and-dip set are ideal)." Shelf Awareness for Readers "A blast-from-the-past cookbook that improves the recipes while preserving the traditions"
