These vintage party food recipes from the 50s are “the result of food fashion—but not just of a food ‘fad.’” – In the opinion, of Professor Cooke. He also said –
“That is, the basic flavor combination is something that reaches across the decades. What you’re describing may seem very odd to us in the 21st century, but the taste combinations—savory and sweet (tuna waffles, ham and bananas) or sweet and sour (mayo with lime) are surely very familiar.”
The Professor continued –
“There were ‘fads’ at mid-century: think of cookbooklets demonstrating how to decorate one’s ham with slices of canned pineapple, topped with the bedazzling red of a maraschino cherry, for example! And you don’t mention the jaw-dropping recipes incorporating marshmallows in main course dishes, recipes that were brain children of corporate marketing departments.”

“But if we were to create one of today’s favorites from scratch, say, Pad Thai, we would start from the same basic taste combinations you describe in what at first glance seem like bizarre plate partners,”
Professor Cooke explained how things haven’t changed as much as we believe.
“Cooking bitter tamarind with water, raw sugar and fish sauce will build the basic foundation (sour, salty and sweet). To that one would add the requisite green onions, bean sprouts, and noodles—and likely some additional flavor notes such as shallot, garlic, and perhaps dried turnip (salty and sweet) to deepen the flavor.”
