Book Description: Banana Meatloaf, Tomato Soup Cake, & Spam Smoothies -- borderline tummy-turners to downright doubtful -- this book is a showcase of culinary curiosities from some of America's favorite magazines, cookbooks, & food co's. Actual recipes & images of some of the most daring dishes to ever leave the kitchen combine with commentary & quips to pay homage to those foods we'd rather forget. In the name of nutrition & creative cooking, the marketing & recipe writers of the 1950s cooked up some very suspicious combinations. Innovations in food processing & new products tempted everyone from the amateur cook to the prof'l. chef to play with their food. And the results? You be the judge. Have a laugh as you remember those foods you'd rather forget!
