My hat is off to Bon Appetit for having the offals to publish the 15 most insane recipes from their archives. The 60s and 70s are especially well represented, as well they should be. Pretty much every recipe from that 20 year stretch was insane.
The list includes, a blue cheese mousse that looks like pureed Smurf, teddy bears who hurled themselves in the oven in a suicide pact, and a Waldorf gelatin salad that very strongly resembles something I once purchased at a joke shop in a package reading “Whoops. Fool your friends.”
But you really need the photos. They’re here.
