A cookbook revisiting retro foods from the 1970s associated with treats bought from the milkbar, the bakery, the fish and chip shop, the lolly shop and the corner store.
Retro in style and theme, but very much a contemporary cookbook in its approach, Milkbar Memories is the author's ode to wonderful old-fashioned treats connected with her 1970s childhood. Food strongly associated with memories of simpler times: the maltiest of milkshakes; wickedly delicious lollies like musk sticks and fruit jubes; golden fish and chips; flaky-pastried meat pies and sausage rolls; vanilla slices and custard tarts. These 'fun foods'-over 120 in total, including lots of exciting variations -are all made from scratch with real, natural ingredients for a 21st century audience. Chapters include 'Milkbar'; 'The Lolly Counter'; 'The Icecream Cabinet', 'Fish 'n' Chip Shop' and 'Corner Store'.
