The list author says: "Remember jello salad molds? Ovaltine? The Campbell's "Soup & Sandwich" campaign? Even if your tastes in food have grown up along with you, it can be fun to go back in time and remember what we ate along the way to adulthood."
"I'm a huge fan of everything Jane & Michael Stern, and I loved this book. They give a comprehensive history of post-WWII American food and cooking. Very readable - almost like a novel. Their love of food history permeates every page."
"Just reading chapter names - Sunday dinners, ladies' tearooms, school cafeterias, the living room luau - is guaranteed to transport you back in time. For kitsch enthusiasts and cooks (lost of recipes included)."
