While updating my mini ebook Whatever Happened To...? I began to yearn for Oat Crunchies and prawn-flavoured Niknaks. So I put together this menu for the perfect retro dinner party.
This is the food I want to eat again. I’ll do a menu of chops and boiled cabbage followed by junket, all washed down with sweet white wine, another time.
Cold consommé with sour cream and chives
Caramelised onion tart
Crudités and dips
Rye bread with caraway seeds
Poppy seed rolls
Orange and watercress salad
Green salad (butterhead lettuce) with French dressing
Russian salad (cooked diced vegetables in mayonnaise)
Pommes Duchesse (creamed potato swirls)
Individual fruit pies
Seed cake and sand cake
Ambrosia creamed rice
Black cherry yoghourt
Lemon meringue pie
WASHED DOWN WITH
Clarnico mint creams
Buy the book! It could prove useful if you are writing a novel set in the last 50 years.
