Creamed Tomatoes from the Seventies

August 20, 2017

From my first cookbook (published in 1972; cover art by Doug Hollis), the recipe for creamed tomatoes.  I used to make it all the time – but then again, I was  21 when I wrote that book!

This was the art on the page; it was done by the late, great Chris Frayne.

So So Seventies

July 24, 2017

I find old recipes like this one from Gourmet, August 1977, irresistible. When was the last time you read instructions that told you to moisten slices of white bread and then roll them out thin before deep-frying.  So seventies!

As for this old ad, it pretty much speaks for itself….
