IN this study of 1970s life, we look at Peggy Treadwell’s The Working Couple’s Cookbook (1971). In the go-ahead 1970s of free love and wife swapping parties, the book was aimed at not only wives and husbands but “roomates, soulmates, playmates, or wedded mates”.

The pictures were provided by Craig Torlucci, whose rule-breaking colour by numbers approach catches the eye. The shades skilfully mirror the food tones of those times.
