Party recipes from the 60s

In the 1960s there was no buffet without butter roses, butter hedgehogs or other decorative butter forms. Vegetables and fruit were also cut nicely, bread was often cut out with ramekins and wonderfully imaginative topped. The cult drink of the 1960s was Kuller peach – a peach that had been pungent and filled with sparkling wine, “rolling” in the glass. God’s dish was the must-have dessert, seasoned meat or ragout fin the evergreen at every party! Click through some other popular party recipes here and look forward to cold and warm classics as well as cakes, desserts and drinks from the 60s!

Party recipes from the 80s

The drinks hit are colored cocktails, for example with blue curacao.
