Get a unique look on food from the 50s with our 1950s Cookbooks from Newspapers. After the end of WWII in 1945, this archive of collected 1950s recipes gives you a unique perspective on how the people of Britain recovered from a significant period of rationing post-war. From unusual classics like 'Fish Croquets' and ‘Exotic Bread Pudding', revisit the weird and wonderful 1950s Dishes that made the decade iconic.

Featuring original adverts and helpful advice columns as printed at the time, this Newspaper Cookbook offers health and beauty tips enjoyed by the domestic culinary goddess in the 50s. With the joyful help of Patsy’s food strips fashioned by the Daily Mirror, 1950s Recipes were more ingenious than ever, creating a practical way to deal with rationing during Britain’s aftermath of the war.

Our 1950s Newspaper Cookbooks are available in softback and hardback, with our hardback editions featuring the recipient’s Name embossed in gold on the cover. You can personalise this gift with Any Name and Message for a flashback into a bygone era, with quirky 1950s food anyone can make their own.

Your Personalised 1950s Recipe Book

Personalise with Any Name up to 22 characters and Any Message of five lines up to 30 characters each.

If your pockets are feeling plentiful, you can make this gift truly special with a hardback edition featuring the recipient’s Name embossed in gold on the cover.
