Food Fads from the 50’s and 60’s, presented by Leslie Goddard

Remember Jell-O salads and cheese sprayed out of a cab? When every pantry held Velveeta and all the kids wanted to drink Tang like the astronauts?  Join historian and author Leslie Goddard for a nostalgic look at the food innovations and marketing approaches that transformed how we ate at midcentury. Using classic cookbooks, advertisements, and family magazines, explore how society and technology shaped American food from the 1940’s through the 1960s.
