Have you ever eaten a platter of lobster battered in human blood?
It's called ‘Les Diners de Gala,’ and until the announcement of its reprint, each copy of Salvador Dali's hilarious cookbook was so rare it was worth thousands of dollars. Perhaps the best way to begin to misunderstand Dali's book is by reading his preface:
"Les diners de Gala is uniquely devoted to the pleasures of taste… If you are a disciple of one of those calorie-counters who turn the joys of eating into a form of punishment, close this book at once; it is too lively, too aggressive, and far too impertinent for you."
Aggressive is the right word - and in 2016, that's exactly the attitude this world craves. Publisher TASCHEN must have sensed that, taken a look around, and decided the time was right to unleash this beast of a book upon the human race once again. Look at the gallery above if you want a "taste" of what this cookbook has to offer, and hit up Amazon if you're sold and want the pre-order. Dali's book comes back from the dead and into your kitchen November 20.
