Vintage buffet

Remember when food looked this good? Me either! I just love vintage cookery books. Found this one in a local antique store. Those little prawn stuffed tomatoes look so cheerful. Maybe a little weird but definitely cheerful. I wont be reconstructing them. But I'm thinking the domino biscuits. Happy tuesday.

I love the colours and the pictures, but some of the food does look strangely unappetizing! I have a vintage Egg and Cheese cookery book - and I can honestly say I've never been tempted to make anything from it!

Haven't seen food look that good for years!

Mm-mm colourful! I think my mum may have had this book when I was a kid - is it called Cooking in Colour or something similar? I definitely remember seeing domino biscuits, but they may have been a popular fad!
