Recipes from 1960s Newspapers
- Gift Details
Say hello to the sensational food of the swinging ‘60s with our Recipes and Cookery Ideas from 1960s Newspaper Book. From a growth in immigration from former British colonies, the ‘60s meant a blast for Britain's basic taste palate. Instead of plain English foods, we developed an appetite for more exotic and tasty meals.
No more boring packets of noodles, but the more oriental, Chow Mein, and goodbye to rice pudding and welcome the aromatic wonder of curry! These dishes were marketed straight into TV dinners - satisfying and easy. Like Patsy's Reflections of the ‘50s, join the new Kim and Jim in the Kitchen for their authentic take on yummy dishes like 'Exeter Stew' and 'Minted Beef burgers’.
Consumerist goods were at an all-time high in this decade, with supermarkets booming with meals to fill the fridge in one entire shop. This culture was all about what was convenient, but the popularity for tips and recipes in this newspaper book were still in serious demand.
As well as health and beauty advice, the recipes of this decade were aimed at the domestic goddess. Having absolutely no embellishments or adjustments, this book mirrors the condition of the newspaper as it was first printed. Including original adverts and tips for the prosperous housewife to relish, the book is a nostalgic look back on ‘60s food that defined the decade.
Available in hardback and softback, the books feature the recipient’s Name of up to 22 characters over 1 line on the cover of the book, including a special Message of up to 150 characters over 5 lines, with 30 characters per line.
Why not upgrade to a hardback? The edition is bound by hand in a matte purple cover and features the recipient’s Name embossed in gold for the perfect timeless touch.
Our personalised recipe books are a collection of newspaper recipes and food ideas from the 1960s. Printed on durable quality paper with a gloss cover, available in A4 softback or A4 hardback.
Hardback books will have your choice of name embossed in gold on the front cover. Your text will be made exactly as you have entered it, so please double check spelling, punctuation and capitalisation. Accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.
