It’s Retro Time!

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Round a friend’s din­ner ta­ble the other night, af­ter hav­ing put the world to rights, the con­ver­sa­tion got around to more im­por­tant things, like food. These were well trav­elled peo­ple din­ing – “a life­time in the Mid­dle East”, “20 years in La­gos”, “A long spell in Tokyo” – but I was sur­prised at how of­ten fa­mous dishes of the 1960s which have sur­vived on into many menus to­day were men­tioned.

The two I “re-is­sue” here came top. In pre­sent­ing them, though, I must stress the im­por­tance of buy­ing the best in­gre­di­ents. For ex­am­ple, cold wa­ter prawns, i.e. “North At­lantic” are es­sen­tial for prawn/shrimp cock­tail.
