A post on the Food Section praising an apron printed with cooking reference material (printed upside down, for easy reading!) brought back childhood memories of the tea towels printed with line art and recipes that were popular during the ’70s. Why, a kitchen wasn’t a kitchen without a giant wooden fork and spoon hanging over the table and a bunch of recipe tea towels over by the cabinets. Etsy is lousy with vintage ones (search “recipe” and “towel”), but just in case you’re hankering for a towel without someone else’s coffee stains on it, Australian company MOZI sells groovy new tea towels with recipes on them.

The hot cross buns towel is all sold out, but hey, the fish pie towel is still available!
