Published only once in 1973, Les Dîners de Gala is Salvador Dalí’s surrealist cookbook wholly devoted to the sensual pleasures of taste. Thanks to Taschen, Dalí’s rare cookbook is available for the first time in over 40 years, complete with gluttonous recipes and illustrations by Dalí.
Famed for he and his wife’s opulent, over the top dinner parties, Dalí reveals a brief window into the notoriously sensual and exotic gatherings. The Taschen reprint features all 136 recipes paired with Dalí’s illustrations – all of which are further accompanied by Dalí’s own delectable musings.
But be forewarned. Les Dîners de Gala is not for everyone. As Dalí so states, “Les Dîners de Gala is uniquely devoted to the pleasures of taste…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.”
