Shiny Meat & Vegetable Conglomerates

There’s an 80s recipe book at work dedicated to pasta.  It tries to convince you to serve your steak on a pile of penne.  It has recipes for pasta desserts, like raspberry fettucine with white chocolate sauce.  I read it when the photocopier line is long and cringe about how surely that’s grossest misuse of a food group in history.

And then last night I saw…

gello-meat

Yes, each part of this meal is neatly floating in a jelly.  My eyes!  And, simultaneously, my stomach and tastebuds!  Apparently savoury gelatin moulded dinners were A Thing in the 1950s.

More on this at the excellent Sociological Images blog, here .
