And you can even get them for home use. Like, what more can you ask for. Hot dogs any one?

To day’s fifties recipe is for classic French petit choux. Maybe not particularly special for the fifties, but I found it in a magazine from the fifties so I guess they were popular during that decade. I’ve never tried this recipe myself, but it looks manageable for someone knowing their way around a kitchen.

This is the beginning of a surprisingly practical part of my blog. Food and drink recipes from the fifties. A trip down memory lane to a time when butter, cream and sugar was part of our staple food together with fatty stuff and other of our days no-no ingredients.

To make it easy for you I’ve added converting tables from metric measurements to the silly stuff you English speaking people use and you’ll find them here

And as a starter I’ve added some milk shake recipes from 1959 here

More will follow shortly.
