A treasury of trivia-plus recipes-for lovers of good old-fashioned comfort food. Who pitted the first cherries and nestled them into pie crust? Was a meatloaf sandwich the result of a late-night refrigerator run? And does anyone really crave green bean casserole, complete with fried onions on top? In this era when every roast chicken needs a pedigree of a free-range home and antibiotic-free past, it's time to celebrate the very basics of American cooking, the joy of Velveeta and pleasures of Jell-O. In this book, Ann Treistman takes readers on a journey through a 1950s kitchen, and shares some surprising facts about culinary history. (For example, deviled eggs were first prepared in ancient Rome.) For anyone who loves to make, bake-or eat-food, this is not only a fun read, but also includes fifty retro recipes, for mac and cheese and much, much more.
