Originally published in 1973 and featuring Salvador Dali’s paintings and etchings, Les Diners de Gala, is a cookbook featuring 12 chapters of exotic courses all rendered with a surrealist twist. The tenth chapter is even dedicated to aphrodisiacs. It is a remarkable book which highlights again the genius of Avida Dollars!
“We would like to state clearly that, beginning with the very first recipes, Les Diners de Gala, with its precepts and its illustrations, is uniquely devoted to the pleasures of Taste. Don’t look for dietetic formulas here. We intend to ignore those charts and tables in which chemistry takes the place of gastronomy. If you are a disciple of one of those calorie-counters who turn the joys of eating into a form of punishment, close this book at once; it is too lively, too aggressive, and far too impertinent for you.” Preface.
