Taschen publishers strike again! This year they re-published Dali’s cookbook ‘Les diners de Gala’ which was first published in 1973.
Dali’s cookbook has 136 recipes, some illustrated by Mr. Dalí himself. All these recipes are cuisine of the old school, with recipes by leading French chefs from restaurants as Lasserre, La Tour d’Argent, Maxim’s, and Le Train Bleu. So: let’s return to the Seventies and dress the roast with frilly socks, like the photo in the book suggests. Needless to say we, at Mimi Berlin, feel that this book is proper Christmas gift. If you’re not a fan of Dali try to find a copy of ‘In cucina con amore’ (1971) a cookbook by Sophia Loren; which has been re-published in several languages as well, it’s also an always-okay-gift for sure.
