A splendid festive gift: The Surrealist Cookbook is now available from Dark Windows Press. You may be keen to boil someone's head, make vegetarian brains or curried love, perhaps you fancy a communist cocktail or a cup of touareg tea? All of these recipes and many more are included in this book along with poetry, prose and pictures from around the world. The Surrealist Cookbook will sit on your bookshelf along with your other favourite cookbooks and will be returned to again and again for that one special recipe that you choose to keep close to your imagination.
In parts, The Surrealist Cookbook is a fairly conventional cookbook as it contains recipes for a number of meals, drinks and desserts. Some of these are adapted from ideas by people associated with the history of surrealism (including Salvador Dali, Frida Kahlo, David Gascoyne, Conroy Maddox, J.G. Ballard, Remedios Varo and Luis Buñuel) and others are used to link together visual art and poetic works. The majority of the recipes are intended for use in the kitchen although some are complete flights of fancy.
