DC Thomson recently released a book featuring some of the best historical recipes from the 1950s, with classic tips and tricks of the era. As we love all things culinary, we thought we’d give it a wee review.
Pass It On: Cooking Tips from the 1950s offers an insight into the troubles and tribulations faced by Scottish housewives during the 50s. Whether it was coming up with inventive solutions to cooking with rations or dressing up rather bland vegetables, these housewives found unique ways to overcome a distinct set of challenges.
