Cooking with Poo

Cooking with Poo Saiyuud DiwongMost people would prefer to avoid eating crap. Which is ironic, since there are so many restaurants serving crappy food. Just watch a random episode of a Guy Fieri show and the dung will be flying.

So, why would you want to buy a classy poo cookbook? Perhaps because the title is misleading and this poo is actually the talented chef Poo. That doesn’t mean this book isn’t a great kick to have on the coffee table when dinner guests arrive.

To finish the night, you should pour some crappy wine and watch the movies:

The Flavor Thesaurus by Niki Segnit

The Flavor Thesaurus: A Compendium of Pairings, Recipes and Ideas for the Creative CookThis is not a cookbook for everyone. If you follow a recipe like a religion and expect consistency, you may want to try a different book. But if you are the type of person that oozes with inspiration upon entering an art supply store, this is the culinary resource you’ve been looking for.

Got this book on a whim — mostly because I liked the title! Wow, am I glad I did! For anyone who has cooked strictly from recipes and would like to be more creative OR for anyone who wants more sophisticated results when searching for a recipe to match ingredients in the fridge OR for someone who just likes food writing. This is an unbelievably entertaining and useful book! Nearly 350 pages of good ideas and pithy comments — I don’t know how Ms. Segnit did it, but it’s terrific all the way through!

Freeganism for the road warrior

Freeganism is for people that believe in gleaning food from stores, markets, orchards, restaurants, etc. It’s an extreme reaction towards the excesses of today’s culture.

The Original Road Kill Cookbook is exactly like that… only completely different. Sure, it shows you how to make the best of leftovers, but it’s not exactly for the granola-eating environmentalists. It gives exact details how to hit the poor little Bambis with your vehicle to save you the trouble of loading them.
