The personal brain-dump of Garrett Coakley

Friday fun

There’s been a thread running on thechat over the past few days about food; stuff we like, stuff we don’t like (I hate sprouts) and stuff we’ve never heard of.

Anyway, Alan sent in a great link to The Gallery Of Regretable Food. It catalogues the horrors of food during the post WWII period, rips the piss out of cookbooks of the time (check out the dissection of The Hungry Man’s Outdoor Cookbook), and prompts you to ask the question "How the hell did anyone manage to eat, let alone put on any weight in those odd odd times?"
