I love these old photos.
Food photography was surprisingly unsophisticated in the past. So it's not only the horror of the recipes themselves, it's the image that makes one wonder who the heck thought this was an appetizing picture!
Thank you for this! Hilarious that this was haute cuisine back in the day... We think of Bon Appetit as at least relatively sophisticated...
That blue cheese mousse looked suspiciously like Sandra Lee's infamous Haunukka cake!
Fortunately I never ran into any of those! Had I done so, I probably would have sworn off cooking and never come to love BA. :-)
