DALÍ: LES DÎNERS DE GALA BY SALVADOR DALÍ
price unavailable, NATIONAL BOOKSTORE
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.
