#CordonBleugh: Northern Soul wants your classic cookbook recipes
Is there anything more nostalgic than food?
From sitting at the family dining table and indulging in a tasty homemade Sunday roast to eating fish and chips doused in salt and vinegar and wrapped in paper on a trip to the seaside (usually accompanied by rain and dive-bombing seagulls), we’ve all got great memories related to our taste buds – and our bellies.
In a new series on Northern Soul, we look back at recipes and culinary delights from years gone by. Some conjure up images from our childhood, some make us laugh out loud (sausage beanfeast with pineapple, anyone?) and some seem downright bonkers.
The 20th century truly was a golden age for cookery books. We want your photos of these culinary classics. For a flavour of what we mean, check out these images from Northern Soul‘s Damon Fairclough. Can you do better? Get in touch on our social media – all links are on the right hand side of this page in those lovely red icons.

@PurpleGooner Phenomenal Woman is our favourite but love the fact the congresswomen in the US are quoting this one in response to Trump.
People shouting 'send her back' at Trump rallies, the future PM waving a kipper around, warnings of a UK recession thanks to Brexit. We've never felt so simultaneously depressed and baffled by the state of the world. Think we'll look at photos of kittens for the rest of the day.
