I was going though some old papers this morning and found a copy of the first ever Christmas special of the BBC Good Food Magazine from December 1989.
I’ll spend some more time going through this but my first thoughts were how dated so much of it now looks but it is interesting to look back. The front cover reads: BBC December 1989 Good Food. 90p Food, drink & more from your TV and radio cooks. Christmas recipes from Sarah Brown, Madhur Jaffrey and Floyd plus Delia’s trifle! Your step-by-step guide to choosing a microwave oven. 85 recipes Pull out and keep cooks directory. Food and Drink is back. Kill Goolden sips some Christmas wines,Michael Barry’s two course menu for 50p Chris Kelly checks up on fats.
Did anyone ever make the Christmas Tree Cake?
I’d say the book recommendations have aged quite well and I certainly remember having these books around the house back in the early 1990’s.
I love this guide to buying a god Nut Cracker… might have to have a look at bringing this up to date as the subject of a new blog. Looking at all these pages it’s interesting to check the prices. Some things have hardly changed at all while others have become much more expensive.
