Personalised 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 swinging 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 - though satisfying and easy, they impeded the variety of recipes for these types of foods. 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’.

As part of our book’s unique design, our hardback editions feature your choice of Name embossed in gold on the front cover as well as your pesonalisation on the inside cover whilst the softback version includes your Name and Message on the opening page only. With no embellishments or adjustments, this book mirrors the condition of the newspaper as it was first printed, including original adverts and tips for the reader. 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. Now you can digest and learn about the variety of food that aided the prosperous housewife to create quick and convenient meals to satisfy the whole family. Personalise with the person’s Name and any Message on the opening cover to make it extra special!
