Reviews

"Salvador Dali's exotic and imaginative cookbook, filled with the stuff your dreams (or possibly your nightmares) are made of." "A mammoth tome whose lustrous gold cover hints at decadence to come." "A surrealist, sensory treat." "Surrealist fans and kooky cooks will enjoy TASCHEN's re-issue of Salvador Dali's 1973 cookbook, Les Diners de Gala. Illustrated with Dali's bizarre, erotic work and dinner spreads shot in garish 1970s tones, this is a legitimate cookbook..." "This is one for hedonists. It brims with Dali's sumptuous, often phallic, illustrations and wry photographs of the mustachioed painter at his famous dinner parties... It's unlike any other cookbook this year, or any other year, for that matter." "...a surrealist feast for the eyes, a kaleidoscope of weird, captivating, extraordinary, and mind-bending images, with recipes to match."
