Enter to Win Salvador Dali’s Cookbook

Lately it’s been feeling as if we live in a surreal world, from the recent election to newfangled illusory dishes like the raindrop cake. It’s like we exist inside a Salvador Dalí painting. Actually, depending on whom you wanted to win the presidency, you either want to drown your sorrows in comfort food or throw an over-the-top celebration as only a man adorned with a cape, walking stick and upturned waxed moustache like Dalí could. Dalí loved extravagance, and his penchant for opulence is captured in his 1973 cookbook Les Dîners de Gala, which has just been rereleased by TASCHEN. His esoteric guide to cooking has 136 recipes, many illustrated by Dalí, over 12 chapters (one of which is dedicated to aphrodisiacs and another to snails and frogs). Get his timely recipe for Turkey with Roquefort after the jump for a taste.

Drink Pink for St. Patrick’s Day

Wild Irish Rose

by Ben Schaffer

This St. Patrick’s Day, like every year, the streets will run green with misguided alcoholic effluvia. But if we act fast, we still have a chance to rethink and update our strategy for the drinking holiday. Fortunately, the masterminds behind New York’s celebrated Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog, can show the way. This year, eschew kelly-colored plastic derby hats and bright-green buttons proclaiming your kissability. This year, pour yourself the Wild Irish Rose, which is undeniably, unashamedly pink.

Enter to Win the Bob’s Burgers Burger Book


Watch the Bob’s Burgers Burger Book Music Video

When Bob Belcher first opened and then first reopened and later first re-re-reopened his little burger joint, Bob’s Burgers, his ambition was unequivocal. It can’t be easy running a business when your staff is your kids — precocious Louise, awkward Gene and buttocks-loving Tina — and you have to compete with Jimmy Pesto’s Pizzeria across the street. What’s a passionate burger auteur to do?

When you’re as animated (literally) as Bob, you invent burgers with pun names as far-out as some of the concepts: The Cauliflower’s Cumin from Inside the House Burger (comes with cauliflower and cumin); It’s Fun to Eat at the rYeMCA (comes on rye with mustard, cheese and avocado); the Beets of Burden Burger (served with too many beets); and so on. Some of these burgers probably work better in non-cartoon life than others. One dedicated fan of the show created a blog where he took these burger names scrawled on a blackboard in the background of the show and created bona fide recipes. The 71 greatest triumphs of his experiment have been recipe-tested by legit chefs and compiled in a new cookbook called The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book: Real Recipes for Joke Burgers. Find out how to enter to win a copy after the jump.
