136 recipes, specially illustrated by Dalí, and organized by meal courses, from exotic courses to fish and shellfish to vegetables, rendered with a surrealist twist both gastronomically and aesthetically, but nowhere more so than in the tenth chapter, dedicated to aphrodisiacs. The illustrations and recipes are accompanied by Dalí’s extravagant musings on a range of subjects. This is cuisine of the old school, with meals by leading French chefs from such stellar Paris restaurants as Lasserre, La Tour d’Argent, Maxim’s, and Le Train Bleu.
