I love this idea of retro recipes. I have a thing for colonial America, so I used to give one dinner each autumn using recipes for dishes they ate back then. The only problem is, when I got my hands on some authentic recipes, I couldn't make them because the ingredients, measurements and temperatures were nothing like what we use today. Interesting problem.
