Personalised Recipes from 1980s Newspapers - Gift Details

With our recipes and cookery ideas from the 1980s Newspaper Book, take your taste buds on a trip down memory lane. Due to the fluctuating economy of the decade, the difference between those who did and didn't have money was broader than ever during this period. It was an era of vast opposites, from culture to food styles of the era; from exotic dishes around the world, to fast foods that were cheap and satisfying.

With most Brits owning a freezer and the dawning of the microwave revolution, Britain’s diet certainly developed into all shapes and sizes! From easy freezer meals ready in minutes in the portable micro-oven, to 'Boozy Pears', uncover the delicious secrets of the 80s that made the decade iconic.

The History of 1980s Newspaper Recipes

If you’re looking for timesaving dishes to take your taste buds back to yesteryear, take a look through the 80s food history book and discover great fast food ideas. Digest and learn about the variety of foods that made the decade memorable with the help of Allison and Barbra Jackson.

With no embellishments or adjustments, this book mirrors the condition of the newspaper as it was first printed, including original adverts. As well as health and professional help columns, the recipes of this decade were no longer aimed at the domestic goddess but meant everyone could get in on the cooking 80s classic dishes.
