A cooking lesson from Dali….

A couple of months ago Taschen Books re released Salivador Dali’s Les diners de Galadali_diners_de_gala_va_gb_3d_sticker_04639_1611081821_id_1071839

Made in 1973 Dali dedicated this cookbook to his wife and muse Gala Dali ( The pair was known to have thrown the best dinner parties!). This book contains 136 recipes with such interesting names as “Conger of the rising Sun”, “Mexican Baby Turkeys” and “Father Hans Sauerkraut”

This is such an incredible book for both art lovers and cooking fiends. It is so visually stunning and every page offers some appealing both to the eye and the stomach.

“I can’t forgive myself for having lied to you. I don’t have a degree in biology. Never even finished high school. I haven’t read more than two books in my whole life. One, never finished. And the other is the phone book.”- Cemetery Man
