Feeling hungry? Thought so. How do you fancy a little something from the ‘scene-makers cookbook’? Or as the cover notes say: ‘Dozens of nutty, turned-on, easy-to-prepare recipes from the grooviest gourmets happening.’
Now before you start sniggering, the term ‘swingers’ meant something a lot different in the 1960s to what it does now and for those of you unfamiliar with 60s hip-cat speak, back in the day a swinger was a person who was, if you like, hip and trendy – not a wife-swapper, or to be entirely PC a partner-swapper as we believe swinging is known now. Not that we know that much about it of course.
So, here we have a cookbook with recipes allegedly written by the stars of the day. Whether they actually contributed said recipes is a moot point and to a certain extent irrelevant but it’s fun to imagine Simon & Garfunkel or Leonard Nimoy sweating over a hot stove struggling to get their chosen recipe just-so before they submit it for publication.
