About this product
- DescriptionThe 1950s was the first great age of the modern kitchen. Labour-saving appliances, bright colours and the velty of fitted units moved the kitchen from dankness into light, where it became the domain of the happy housewife and the heart of the home. New space-age material Formica, decorated with fashionable patterns, topped sleek cupboards that contained new classic wares such as Pyrex and 'Homemaker' crockery, and the ingredients for 1950s staples: semolina, coronation chicken and spotted dick. Electricity entered the kitchens of millions, and where in the home was modern techlogy and modern design more evident. Bold colour, clean lines and stainless steel were keytes of the decade. This book - a celebration of cooking, eating and living in the 1950s kitchen - is a feast of stalgia, and a mine of inspiration for anyone wanting to recreate that '50s look in their own home.
