Awe Inspiring Cookbooks of Yore, Explicated
This community is inspired by the likes of Candy Boots and Lileks Gallery of Regrettable Food.

This is not a recipe community.

Instead, this is a place to share the terrifying and awe inspiring instructional culinary masterpieces (or disasters) of yore. Cold veal in aspic? We've got it. Questionable backdrop? We've got it. An unhealthy obsession with fancy garnishes? We've got it. This is really about the presentation, the print copy, the images, the terrifying ground beef optimism that epitomizes cookbooks from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s.

Again, this is not a recipe community. Feel free to put recipes in the comments, especially if people ask, because the only thing more awesome than posting vintage food shots is actually making and/or consuming it.
