Hello and welcome to the Bad and Ugly of Retro Food. Anyone who grew up between 1950-1979 can look at pictures or have their memory refreshed that what they ate was not beautiful. It was not detailed, colorful, full of food artist technique. It was what it was. Often the colors were dull, different salt shakers were in the pictures, the setting almost matched what was served. The food was lucky to have looked edible.
