Frankie Mag's Five Questionable Retro Cookbooks

We're pumped to master the kitchen at our upcoming cooking and yoga series, but you best believe we're relieved to be taking the stove head-on in today's world. Check out these ridiculously dated, vintage cookbooks from the 50's and 60's for a healthy reminder that cooking wasn't always what it is now....

      It's not  that kind of  radiation, silly, it's a stove.                       Naturally, the next best thing to a French wife.

So we might not know how to cook yet, but we're already pretty sure "Oh, For A French Wife!" won't make it onto the table during our collab with a vegan chef...

However, one thing that has us super stoked on learning to cook in 2016 is, well, that it's 2016. That said, this progressive cookbook from 1970 can help get you pretty graphically in-touch with your inner meal prep-vixen (you can even buy it on Amazon, since we won't have time for this winner, either.)

All in all, Frankie Mag's hilarious post highlighting retro cookbook debauchery has us feeling particularly grateful that expectations have changed. See the full post over at their website for more painfully funny details, and next time you step into the kitchen, take a second to think....
