Welcome to food limbo, where the dishes that never became instagram-firendly dwell.

From: "Kokboksklubben God Mat: Förrätter" Hemmets Journal AB, 1983
There is a dusty pile of cookbooks in most people's houses. The cookbooks published before the days of instagram, facebook and blogs. Dishes which were fashionable before the habit of photographing your food before you eat it and then posting it online for your friend's to envy became a completely acceptable past time. Dishes, which used to be the height of sophistication, now carelessly tossed aside for Asian-Italian fusions, organic bread baked by Swedish milk maidens and "so hot right now" breeds of lemons began their online domination.
Some people may consider these dishes food hell. I would like to say they're in food limbo.
And, to be honest, who doesn't love the idea of a avocado/prawn combo?
