Back when spam was a delicacy and aspic was king, dinner parties were a creamy, gelatinous affair. Never in human history has more effort gone into making such disgusting-looking food
California Waldorf salad
Those crazy Californian cats always have the last word in cooking. If you were a little uneasy about the usual walnut, mayo and apples combo, this dish will make you feel as wobbly as the stuff it's set in.
Baby shower chicken
Why not celebrate the miracle of new life with a banana, pineapple and chicken surprise?
Ham and bananas hollandaise
Yes, that is ham and banana plus hollandaise ...
Beef tongue with raisins
Chunks of bovine face meat sprinkled with dried fruits. What's not to like?
Creamed veg-filled pancakes with canned peach garnish
And they say veggies don't have any fun.
Prawns with grapes
*tastes prawns* "You know what these need? Grapes. Yup, creamy grapes."
Green jelly loaf
"This one's going to knock their socks off, Irene."
The frankfurter crown
It's processed cartilage and cabbage that's fit for a king!
Stuck for ideas? Light yourself some zany candles, pour yourself a cup of tomato, mushroom and gelatin slop and let the ideas flow.
Mayonnaise flavoured gelatin in a tuna shaped mould. Who's for a slice? C'mon, don't be shy ...
Certainly living up to the "peas with flavour" promise, except it's the flavour of pureed ham. Extra points to anyone who can explain what "salad-devilled ham whip" means.
Fiesta peach Spam loaf
"Gay AND delicious enough for a party"! Because nothing says "fiesta" like peaches and tinned spam, does it?
If you didn't quite get around to booking that holiday in St. Lucia, don't worry! This will get you in tropical mood.
Lamb jelly loaf
It's the Sunday roast nightmares are made of.
Prawn sandwich roll
Dazzle your party guests with this fetching swirl of pureed prawn, smothered on WHAT? At the eye of this taste storm: an olive. Naturally.
