Editorial Reviews

Review

Cheryl Krocker McKeon, bookseller
“Readers learn how "Betty Crocker" was born, why Warhol painted soup cans and how "soul food" got its name. For the true '60s buff, Rodgers and Maclean give tips for a party the Mad Men  cast would love, including menus, drink recipes, fashion tips (a hostess will accent her dress with pearls) and proper serving pieces (a Lazy Susan and chip-and-dip set are ideal).” 

Shelf Awareness for Readers
A blast-from-the-past cookbook that improves the recipes while preserving the traditions”

This book was one of my Amazon recommendations (based on my love for all things "Mad Men") and I preordered it as soon as it was available. If you're a fan of the show, or just want to recreate some awesome 60s recipes and entertainment, this is a keeper for your culinary library. The chapters are as follow:
1 - Party Like a Playboy
2 - Food to Drink By: Appetizers and Hors D'Oeuvres
3 - Vichyssoise, Iceberg and Aspic...Oh My! Soups, Salads, and Sandwiches
4 - Company Food: Main Courses
5 - Best Supporting Players: Vegetables and Side Dishes
6 - Showstoppers: Desserts
7 - Executive Cocktails

I've tried the Real Onion Dip, the Sixties Secret Grilled Cheese Sandwich and the Sloppy Joes and they all came out wonderfully! There are many tips included alongside the recipes, including the Kitchen Time Machine which is the fast track version of whatever recipe it appears on. There are several theme menus included as well, perfect for dinner parties, home dinners and other fun home entertainment. Everything is wonderfully detailed and with clear instruction. I can tell this book is going to become very dog-eared from the use I'll be getting out of it!

Having learnt to cook in the late fifties/early sixties, it was such fun to see all those delicious recipes in one place -- this cookbook. We have lost some of these special dishes with the new fangled ideas about what is "good" and what is not for you. How could one forget Waldorf Salad and Lobster Newburg and so on and so forth. This book makes it fun to read and also to try out. I highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in tasty delicious food and how to make it. Get it and enjoy the joy of cooking.

I have many fond memories of the foods from my childhood and was excited to get this book. There are so many great dishes I had totally forgotten about that I can't wait to make. I am inspired to have a 60s dinner party this Fall. If you have fond memories of childhood favorites or are interested in how things were cooked "back in the day" this is definitely a great book to check out!
