“Snarmat for hverdag og fest” is a cook book that both feature recipes like other cook books and ready made menus like the one pictured  here all with a delightful fifties flavour both in dishes and images. The small book feature 8 such menus and the rest will follow later on.

I grew up with teak sandwich platters like the ones on the picture. We used them for breakfast every day, and I still got them and still use them. We even had teak knives for buttering the sandwiches and I still got those too and use them 🙂
