Overview

There are more cookbooks in print than one can shake a stick at. Throw a stone in any store and you’ll hit a book about how to be environmentally friendly. But, for reasons unclear, there's been no environmentally friendly cookbook for those who actually shake sticks and throw stones... until now.

GOOROO’S *PRO*-MAGNON KITCHEN is a culinary manual for the enlightenment of the Neolithic epicure, stressing the need for protecting the planet while providing for one’s clan. Accompanying sixteen lessons in considerate consumption are recipes for soups, salads, bread, appetizers, entrees, and desserts—for carnivores, herbivores, omnivores, and lapivores all. (Lapivores eat rocks!) Additional material provides direction and advice regarding use of the inedible parts of creatures cooked—hides for clothing, shelter, crafts projects… bones for tools, personal adornment, crafts projects… plus contributions from several cavemen and cavewomen who care—leaders in their respective fields who can see beyond the selfishness of the Stone Age.

Editorial Reviews

Mike Sacks
“This book made me laugh my ass off. Granted, I was drunk off strawberry wine, but I guarantee you will also laugh your ass off. You’ll just need this book and perhaps a glass of strawberry wine.” – Mike Sacks, author of AND HERE’S THE KICKER and YOUR WILDEST DREAMS WITHIN REASON
Rob Kutner
“Matthew David Brozik and Lauren Krueger’s caveman cookbook is so funny, it could have evolved mankind from the Stone Age right into the Rubber Chicken Age.” – Rob Kutner, multiple Emmy-winning Conan writer and author of APOCALYPSE HOW
Adam Kuban
“If you’re one of those people who can barely boil water, this is the cookbook for you. After all, its namesake has only just discovered fire. Let Gooroo drag you back to her cave and then into a more enlightened era of cooking—if by enlightened era, you mean the Pleistocene. From Rock Soup to Pteriyaki Pterodactyl Wings, the recipes in GOOROO’S PRO-MAGNON KITCHEN won’t have you digging too far before you hit a cache of prehistoric funny bones.”

Meet the Author

Matthew David Brozik, one of the co-authors of the Government Manual series of guidebooks for superheroes, wizards, and pirates... and author of WHIMSY & SODA... prefers the company of dinosaurs to that of vegetables. His quirky fiction and humor have appeared in various publications, in print and online.

Lauren Krueger is a video editor, writer, and good cook. In a pickle, she can concoct a feast from whatever is handy. In fact, if you hand her a cucumber, she’ll make a pickle. Despite a prevailing obsession with vegetables, Lauren loves hamburgers.

Lauren and Matthew are married. To each other. After collaborating to produce this very funny book, they collaborated to produce a very funny daughter. They also have a bird, obviously descended from dinosaurs, who happens to love pickles. Discovery of the dinosaur-pickle connection is the family’s true gift to science.

Fun and interesting. Now I know how to cook a pterodactyl  (I always wondered). I love the illustration!
