Overview

Following up their utterly original take on cocktails, Bompas & Parr offer another glimpse into the world they know best—exciting and original ways to enhance the dining experience

Our next cookbook is so hairy and muscular it includes an investigation into spontaneous combustion, glitter ham, a chronicle of feasting since the dawn of time, phallic ice sculptures, techniques for feeding 8 to 33,000 people and the surprisingly sensitive mixed drinks of Aleister Crowley. There are also compelling recipes and a whole section on snakes vs cocktails.

Easily the most provocative players on the global food scene, Bompas & Parr have created a new recipe book with a difference, focusing on how to create truly unusual and spectacular foodie events in your own home. They offer fascinating spreads on special feasts through history (including many of their own events) and outrageous but delicious recipes for food and drinks to make your own feast dramatic and a real talking point for all your guests. From Cheese Straws to Glitter Ham, Banana Flambé to Boudoir Biscuits, Chewing Gum to Alchemical Mountain Brew, the recipes showcase the best of Bompas & Parr's wild imaginations, accompanied by breathtaking photography. Includes dual measures.
