Staff Review:

Fans of the “Fifty Shades” trilogy will love this cookbook/parody of E.L. James’ tales of a woman’s relationship with a domineering business magnate, a relationship punctuated with acts of BDSM. A hilarious first-person narrative relates a chicken’s experience of being in the hands of a curious and controlling cook, leading to a sort of poultry self-actualization. Alongside the narrative are fifty recipes highlighting the versatility of the bird, ranging from classic dishes to fare with unexpected yet delicious flavor profiles. Richly colored photos reveal the dishes’ delectability as well as the intended humor behind the text and concept. Readers not familiar with the “Fifty Shades” books nonetheless will appreciate the double entrendres relating cooking terms, techniques and preparations to BDSM and other erotic concepts. Thusly, the cookbook is not for everyone: The at times racy language and context may not be suitable for children and some readers/cooks.
