"Silly some of the time, respectful most of the time and hilarious all of the time, even the squirrel recipes sound delicious and will have me driving slower thru the red states, chumming for low cost snacks on the two lane all the way to Mardi Gras." -- Mario Batali, chef, host of Molto Mario, Mario Eats Italy, and Ciao America on the Food Network, author, The Babbo Cookbook.
"The ideas outlined here for food and fun are zany, sophisticated, and delightful! How many guides to seasonal cooking urge their readers to flambé chickens, smother squirrels, put antidepressants in the punch bowl and sell indulgences? Not nearly enough, if you ask me." -- Georges Briguet, proprietor, Le Perigord, NYC, which opened April 1,1964.
