This cookbook consists of life stories and photo portraits where each recipe becomes a blind date – a culinary encounter with someone you don’t really know.
52 recipes from starters to desserts including a range of meat, fish, pasta, vegetable dishes, and a cocktail. By rejecting the usual categories and freeing itself from received culinary wisdom, it creates a new genre. This is indeed the first cookbook to feature recipes from punk, pop art, spiritual-medium, cosplay, veteran and many other types of cuisine.
The recipe suggestions come from a diversity of cultures. If you wish to follow them, you need to be prepared to turn your kitchen into a place of unprecedented experimentation.
If you believe that “we are what we eat”, then there is opportunity for change in the dishes of others.
Enjoy, if you wish.
