Where did Aspic go?

cassoulady | Feb 17, 200904:29 PM     109

I am currently visiting my SOs mother who is an avid cook. She has every issue of Gourmet since the early 60s and tons of cookbooks ( needless to say I am in heaven). I have been reading a lot of her classic cookbooks and magazines and am wondering how/why aspic has disappeared. It seems every cookbook in the 60s had larges sections devoted to various aspic dishes. I have never eaten an aspic dish but want to make once since clearly they must have been good if everyone was making them. Any insight into why this trend went away and do you think it will come back? And are aspic dishes part of anyones repertoire?
