With our 1980s Cookbook from Newspapers, you can explore food history definitive of the period. Britain’s economy varied in the 80s between the rich and poor. The gap amongst those who did and didn't have money was greater than it had been in the past. Food trends of the period were influenced by this change, meaning a food revolution for the working class.

By this time most working class Brits had freezers, along with the microwave phenomenon, so the people of Britain enjoyed all kinds of 1980s iconic dishes. With freezer meals ready in minutes in the portable micro-oven, the recipes collected in this 80s Newspaper Cookbook capture culinary foods that made the decade iconic.

With the help of Sonia Allison and Barbra Jackson featured in the novelty adverts and columns, learn fabulous 80s Recipes that defined the period. A nostalgic window into the past, our books are available in softback or hardback, personalised with Any Name and Message. For the extra special touch, our hardback books feature the recipient’s Name embossed in gold on the cover. It will make a great treat for someone to enjoy classic 1980s Recipes that made the era memorable.
