We hope you enjoyed our series on 70s inspired recipes where made 1970’s recipes with a modern twist! Our new series starts this week and we are recreating original 70s recipes from 1970s cookbooks. And trust me, if you had read some of the horrors in these books, your stomach would curdle 😉
Today we are kicking off this new series with Cheese-Peach Salad with Mustard Mayonnaise from the delightful cookbook: Woman’s Day Collector’s Cook Book
So on with the recipe… taken from the book…
I have to admit, when reading the title I wasn’t too shocked as peach and blue cheese or peach and goats cheese is a really popular starter dish in many restaurants and I have eaten it myself a few times and thoroughly enjoyed the light and fresh taste of the peach against the saltier, stronger flavour of the cheese. But then I read the recipe… I am not entirely sure why you need the cream in the mayo? And horseradish and mustard together? Isn’t that going to overpower it? All I can say is Dimmet readers, I am doing this for you!
As I was making it, I was just shocked at how much horseradish was going in. I tried to present it beautifully but after tasting the dish on a separate plate I just rushed to get it on the plate and get the photo over and done with, yes, it tastes that bad!
And of course the obligatory close up….
I honestly can say this mixture of tastes is not for me and although I am indeed a child of the Seventies, I am glad my mother never made this!
Roll on next week when we recreate another original 70s recipe! 😉
