The spirits of Caligula and the Marquis de Sade haunt this viciously witty send-up of "la grande bouffe." The morbid minded and the terminally degenerate will especially enjoy such scandalous chapters as "I Can Recommend the Poodle" and "Blood, the Vital Ingredient." The decadent gourmand can't help but go wrong with this celebrated collection of recipes, an ideal gift for the terminally degenerate.

Review from The Sunday Times
'The chapter headings say it all:Corruption and Decay;Blood, the Vital Ingredient; The Gastronomic Mausoleum; and I can Recommend the Poodle. This is not a normal cookbook but a slightly sinister and highly literate feast of decadent writing on food. There are dishes from the tables of Caligula and the Marquis de Sade, a visit to Paris under seige (where rat was a luxury), some unexpected uses for cat food and some amblongous recipes from Edward Lear. There should be something to delight and offend everyone: the recipes for cooking with endangered species looking particularly tasty. Mouthwatering.'
