After my 12 mile long run, I froze my butt off by standing in the pool for 10 minutes and then jumped into the shower to warm up. Feeling kind of tired after the run, I decided to catch up on some blogs. One of my favorite authors is Diana Galbadon, writer of the Outlander series, and she posted about warm rolls with minced pigeon and truffles. One of her fans has a food blog and her fan created the dish discussed in Diana's book Voyager. If you like Diana Galbadon you should check out the blog post with the recipe and excerpts of the book.
Since I really enjoyed the post, I clicked around her site and found a post on the cook books she DOESN'T want to get this Christmas. And I certainly can't blame her. The first cookbook she doesn't want is "a collection of semen-based recipes". She gives a link to list to an interview with the "chef" where you can
"pick up a recipe for an Almost White Russian, with 1/2 oz of you know what in it. It puts new meaning in the wordtail."
The second cookbook might be helpful if you worked on a farm and needed something to do with testicles. The Testicle Cookbook is a e-book complete with a video on how to peel the skin off testicles. Did you know there are world championship cook-offs for testicles?
Being more of a baker than a cooker, I'll have to pass on both of these cookbooks, which I'm sure my boyfriend will gladly thank me.
What is the oddest cookbook you've seen? What is your favorite cookbook?
