Everything that Dali did was "for effect," to be sure -- but he could pull it off so well, much of the time, that those words are not a slam at all. Once in a while, I would see him at the bar of the St. Regis Hotel in New York, staring at a lava lamp. Around that time, I also bought this remarkable book -- it really is a cookbook in that some dishes do not require the more exotic ingredients such as peacock! But the art by Dali in presenting everything is a genuine delight -- decadent in many ways and still with occasional touches of playfulness bordering on the innocent.

Peacock! Yes, there is a recipe from Maxim's for peacock -- which was part of Maxim's menu for the main banquet at the celebration of the 2,500th anniversary of Cyrus the Great and the Persian Empire! This was staged at a tent city built out at Persepolis. The Shah of Iran, who would be overthrown in 1979, wanted to make a connection between himself and the ancient Persian Empire. Of course, he sat on the "Peacock Throne," a it was called. And they served all these roasted peacocks! How does the line go about "cooking your own goose"?

When I was looking for the book, I allready knew it had to be something special.When I received it, this was confirmed, first by the state of the book.It looked very well, also the packaging for shipping was allright.For me, having this book, opens lots of possibilities. Till now I only glace at it, several times a day, being busy with other things, but this is the wayit works with me.

The only thing I didn't expect, was the costs of 22 euro tax I had to pay(even though, the book's worth it)because at the shop they saig it would be nothing.

I am very happy to have had the possibility of buying this book in this way at Cherrybooks.They handled it perfectly.
