"This collection of faddish recipes from the 1920s to the 1990s is a decade-by-decade tour through a hungry American century. From the Three P's Salad - that's peas, pickles, and peanuts - of the post-World War I era to the Fruit Cocktail and Spam Buffet Party loaf - all the rage in the ultra-modern 1950s, when cooking from a can epitomized culinary sophistication - Fashionable Food explores the origins of these curious delicacies. Throughout, Lovegren supplements recipes - some mouth-watering, some appalling - from classic cookbooks and family magazines with humorous anecdotes that explain how society and kitchen technology influenced the way we lived and how we ate."--BOOK JACKET.
