Les Dines de Gala

August 14, 2017

 

Soms kom je een boek tegen dat je louter op de kaft koopt. Het boek 'Les Diners de Gala' van Salvador Dali is zo'n eentje. De prachtige goudkleurige omslag met prikkelende en surrealistische tekeningen verleidde me tot aanschaf. Ook de onverwachte combinatie van schilder- en kookkunst speelde hier in mee. Het verband tussen food & sex weet Salvador Dali als geen ander uit te drukken. 

 

Boek omschrijving:

"Food and surrealism make perfect bedfellows: sex and lobsters, collage and cannibalism, the meeting of a swan and a toothbrush on a pastry case. The opulent dinner parties thrown by Salvador Dali (1904-1989) and his wife and muse, Gala (1894-1982) were the stuff of legend. Luckily for us, Dali published a cookbook in 1973, Les diners de Gala, which reveals some of the sensual, imaginative, and exotic elements that made up their notorious gatherings. This reprint features all 136 recipes over 12 chapters, specially illustrated by Dali, and organized by meal courses, including aphrodisiacs. The illustrations and recipes are accompanied by Dali's extravagant musings on subjects such as dinner conversation: The jaw is our best tool to grasp philosophical knowledge," aldus Christianne Muusers.

 

Het boek 'Les Diners de Gala' is onder andere te koop bij TASCHEN.
