The rotten food cookbook


When I was handed this book at the Sydney Fine Food Show I was sure it was a joke.

After all, why would anyone call a book this, and them, when I flicked through the recipes, would they be called things like Salmon Ella or Puking Duck?

In fact, The Rotten Food Cookbook is a parody cookbook that mixes recipes with disasters and then provides tips on how to avoid the problems.

It is underlining, by way of shock and humour, how terribly easy it is to mishandle foods when cooking, to such an extent that diners could get very ill - or even die.

It's a refreshingly quirky and humorous expose of the dirty secrets of the food service industry, but with some deadly serious ‘take-away’ messages that will resonate with anyone who has ever worked in the food service industry - or even anyone who cooks at home, or entertains friends for a meal or a barbie.

These awesome 'disgustation recipes' will make us all think more carefully about our food-handling habits.

As autor Shane van de Vorstenbosch says: "In this book I show you some quick and easy ways to turn a harmless meal into a business-crushing force not to be reckoned with."
