“Les diners de Gala is uniquely devoted to the pleasures of taste ... If you are a disciple of one of those calorie-counters who turn the joys of eating into a form of punishment, close this book at once; it is too lively, too aggressive, and far too impertinent for you.”―Salvador DalÝ

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 DalÝ (1904–1989) and his wife and muse, Gala (1894–1982) were the stuff of legend. Luckily for us, DalÝ 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 DalÝ, and organized by meal courses, including aphrodisiacs. The illustrations and recipes are accompanied by DalÝ’s extravagant musings on subjects such as dinner conversation: “The jaw is our best tool to grasp philosophical knowledge.”

All these rich recipes can be cooked at home, although some will require practiced skill and a well-stocked pantry. 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.

Good taste, however voluptuous, never goes out of fashion. In making this exceptionally rare book available to a wide audience, TASCHEN brings an artwork, a practical cookbook, and a multisensory adventure to today’s kitchens.The first English edition of Les Diners de Gala was published in 1973 by FELICIE, INC., New York

About the Author:

Salvador Dali (1904 1989) entered the ranks of the Surrealists in 1929 with a series of iconoclastic paintings which fused technical virtuosity with Freudian infantilism, leading to his invention of the paranoiac-critical method. Later expelled from the Surrealist Group, he was christened Avida Dollars by Andre Breton whilst acquiring the reputation of master showman and scandalist. His art and writings remain amongst the most unique and important bodies of work of the 20th Century.

Review:

“A mammoth tome whose lustrous gold cover hints at decadence to come.”

“...a surrealist feast for the eyes, a kaleidoscope of weird, captivating, extraordinary, and mind-bending images, with recipes to match.”

“Surrealist fans and kooky cooks will enjoy TASCHEN’s re-issue of Salvador DalÝ’s 1973 cookbook, Les Dţners de Gala. Illustrated with DalÝ’s bizarre, erotic work and dinner spreads shot in garish 1970s tones, this is a legitimate cookbook...”

“A surrealist, sensory treat.”

“Salvador DalÝ’s exotic and imaginative cookbook, filled with the stuff your dreams (or possibly your nightmares) are made of.”

“This is one for hedonists. It brims with Dali’s sumptuous, often phallic, illustrations and wry photographs of the mustachioed painter at his famous dinner parties... It’s unlike any other cookbook this year, or any other year, for that matter.”
