This is one of those books that does exactly what it says on the tin: it’s full of recipes for dishes that really will freak out your friends, from ‘cat poo in the litter tray’ to ‘severed fingers’. Disgusting as these dishes sound and look however, they’ll taste very good; they’re all made out of regular, tasty ingredients just cleverly arranged to look like something revolting. Hidden among the recipes however are notes on some of the (to us anyway) bizarre or gruesome foods that are eaten in different parts of the world, e.g. witchetty grubs, fruit bats, fish eyeballs and duck embryos (in the shell). Part cookbook, part information book, this happily puts the yuk into cookery. ~ Andrea Reece
From squiggly, jelly `earthworms' to revolting, gooey `snotcorn', this is a fantastically fun cookery book full of gross, yet delicious, recipes to delight children and spark an interest in cooking. Get your gag reflexes ready and practice keeping a straight face--you're going to need both as you dig into this book of repulsive recipes!
