The Gallery of Regrettable Food

Are you hungry? Then avoid this book. If you're looking for a laugh, though, you'll enjoy this fond and disturbing nostalgic trip through the 1950's through the recipes and advice in cookbooks. There are all sorts of disturbing combinations put together here--peppers and marshmallows, hot dogs in everything, and oh, what horrors could be done with Jell-O. In addition to the recipes and visuals, there is snarky commentary on the culinary masterpieces presented. It could possibly be the best diet cookbook on the market because I guarantee you won't want to eat more than a few bites of anything here.
