The Mad Mad Mad Mad Sixties Cookbook by Rick Rodgers

The Mad Mad Mad Mad Sixties Cookbook
by Rick Rodgers [641.5 Rod]

Some fun recipes in here–mostly fun to look at/through different things that were hip back then and to think about recreating them today. Something I found interesting is that Jon Hamm is quoted as pointing out that the glass sizes in bars (and offices?) these days are much bigger than the glass sizes Don Draper would have drank out of in the 60’s….. and the fact that he wasn’t drinking real bourbon on film, but tea or water with food coloring. Portion sizes were much smaller in the 60’s, as well. I’m inspired to look for dinnerware from the 60’s, to help me reduce my family’s portion-sizes without them really noticing the difference.
