Fifty chicken recipes, each more seductive than the last, in a book that makes every dinner a turn-on.
“I want you to see this. Then you’ll know everything. It’s a cookbook,” he says and opens to some recipes, with color photos. “I want to prepare you, very much.” This isn’t just about getting me hot till my juices run clear, and then a little rest. There’s pulling, jerking, stuffing, trussing. Fifty preparations. He promises we’ll start out slow, with wine and a good oiling . . . Holy crap. “I will control everything that happens here,” he says. “You can leave anytime, but as long as you stay, you’re my ingredient.” I’ll be transformed from a raw, organic bird into something - what? Something delicious.
So begins the adventures of Miss Chicken, a young free-range, from raw innocence to golden brown ecstasy, in this spoof-in-a-cookbook that simmers in the afterglow of E.L. James’s sensational Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. Like Anastasia Steele, Miss Chicken finds herself at the mercy of a dominating man, in this case, a wealthy, sexy, and very hungry chef.
And before long, from unbearably slow drizzling to trussing, Miss Chicken discovers the sheer thrill of becoming the main course. A parody in three acts -“The Novice Bird” (easy recipes for roasters), “Falling to Pieces” (parts perfect for weeknight meals), and “Advanced Techniques” (the climax of cooking) - Fifty Shades of Chicken is a cookbook of fifty irresistible, repertoire-boosting chicken dishes that will leave you hungry for more.
With memorable tips and revealing photographs, Fifty Shades of Chicken will have you dominating dinner.
If you are a fan of chicken and/or the Fifty Shades of Grey series, you'll enjoy this cookbook.
Written as a parody in the same style as the Fifty Shades books, it is the seduction between a cook (who was influenced in his youth by that crusty cougar, Julia Child) and his chicken.
There are fifty recipes divided into three chapters:
- The Novice Bird (whole chickens)
- Falling to Pieces (chicken parts and bits)
- Birds Gone Wild (advanced techniques)
Some of the recipes that jumped out at me that I can't wait to try were:
- Roasted Chicken with Bacon and Sweet Paprika
- Jerk Chicken with Spices, Rum, Chiles and Lime
- Bacon-Bound Wings
- Slow-Roasted Chicken (roasted for eight hours at 200F)
- Grilled Beer-can Chicken with Cajun Mayonnaise
The full-colour photos make everything look delish!
