I also remember doing crepe Suzette!!
How very grand. Enjoy
My daughter has some fondue sets Maggie and crepe Suzette ohlala.
I will get rather large trying all these out.
Don't know if you had/have it in Oz but what about buying Arctic Roll? Basically 'log' of ice cream with a thin layer of jam over it and then sponge round it (bit like Swiss roll but only 1 roll, not a spiral - hope that makes sense).
And definitely followed by 'After 8' mints - none of that Ferrero -" you are spoiling us "- Rocher lark (again not sure if you get these TV ads so that reference may pass you by).
Chocolate anything...... (I can only eat custard with cocoa powder mixed into it - well that's my story and I am sticking to it as the family seem to accept it ) Creme Anglaise doesn't count as custard btw.
Also seem to remeber something that involved digestive biscuits soaked in port ( theme here??) and topped with chocolate Angel Delight and whipped cream
I'm feeling deprived as only ever had the Vanilla one (except I wouldn't want one now)

Yes-but it doesn't seem to taste as good.
I think cheesecake was pretty big in the 70's - but it never went out of style in my mind!
Funny - crepe Suzette - bombe Alaska - fondue : 70's desserts seemed to all require matches!
Enjoy the making and the tasting
One other that maybe is more 80th than 70th, but who cares - Gino;500gr fresh strawberries, 2 sliced bananas, 4 peeled and squared kiwis in an oven dish. Press some fresh lime juice over and grate 100gr white chocolate. Put in 200C oven for 10 minutes, serve with vanilla ice cream.
I have just made a chocolate tart from Jamie Olivers February mag, sure hope it will do well for dessert - 12 people for Johns birthday dinner.
There was a recipe that had a bed of rice pudding (tinned) with half a tinned pear on top with a drizzle of strawberry or raspberry sauce, I just can't remember what it was called (hah! just found it, pear conde).
I too did the thing with the ginger nuts, but it went so... Sandwich two ginger nuts together with strawberry jam, dip the ginger nuts quickly into sherry and then stand them on end on a serving plate (you are making a train or log). Then repeat with the rest of the packet. When they are all standing on end smother them with thick whipped cream and decorate with chopped stem ginger.
