A cook­book by a sur­re­al­ist painter? Ab­so­lutely. In this stunning piece of art, Sal­vador Dalí trans­ports you to his oth­er­worldly uni­verse with gus­ta­tory art both dark and dreary, with 136 ac­tual recipes for an elab­o­rate and ex­trav­a­gant feast—think “Prawn par­fait,” “Pea­cock à l’im­péri­ale dressed and sur­rounded by its court,” and a dessert called “The Breast of Venus” (ac­tu­ally a sponge cake filled with melted but­ter). This book was pre­vi­ously pub­lished in lim­ited sup­ply in 1973 and has be­come a col­lec­tor’s item. Now, Taschen has reprinted it in all its deca­dent glory for the gen­eral pub­lic.
