Hungry for more vintage meals?
Well, you’re in luck. Food Network star and cook book author Addie Gundry is serving up plenty of classic meals in her new cookbook, Retro Recipes from the ‘50s and ‘60s. This stunning cook book is a journey into rediscovering the delicious dishes of the past, like Grasshopper Pie, Beef Wellington and Homemade Candy Buttons. This book is a phenomenal addition to any cook’s collection.
“It takes a genuine senior citizen to recall popular foods from the 1950s and ’60s. But baby boomers’ offspring no doubt will have relished many of the recipes Gundry has collected…Most recipes are a breeze to concoct from pantry staples, but even Gundry’s simplified beef Wellington has its place for celebratory dinners.” —Mark Knoblauch, Booklist
