Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 1950s was the first great age of the modern kitchen: labor-saving appliances, bright colors and the novelty of fitted units moved the kitchen from dankness into light, where it became the domain of the happyhousewife and the heart of the home. Formica - a new space-age material - decorated with fashionable patterns topped sleek cupboards that contained new classic wares such as Pyrex and 'Homemaker' crockery, and theingredients for 1950s British staples: semolina, coronation chicken and spotted dick.

Electricity entered the kitchens of millions, and nowhere in the home was modern technology and modern design moreevident. Bold color, clean lines and stainless steel were keynotes of the decade, and it is no surprise that 1950s kitchen style is now the height of fashion once again, with names like Cath Kidston picking up on the bestof '50s kitchen kitsch, and manufacturers like Dualit, Kitchen Aid and Aga doing healthy business with retro appliances.

This book - a celebration of cooking, eating and living in the 1950s kitchen - isa feast of nostalgia, and a mine of inspiration for anyone wanting to recreate that '50s look in their own home.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
