Salvador Dalí's surreal cookbook set to be Christmas bestseller
Stuck for ideas for Christmas dinner this year? Worry no more. Thanks to an unlikely new celebrity chef, fashionable dinners this festive season are likely to feature thousand-year-old eggs, conger eel of the rising sun and frog pasties (recipe in article), all washed down with a cocktail of brandy, ginger and cayenne pepper. If that sounds a bit more surreal than your standard fare, you’re on the right culinary track. A rare and fantastical cookbook by the painter Salvador Dalí, "Les Diners de Gala." is being reissued for the first time in more than 40 years, and already looks set to be an unexpected Christmas bestseller.
