A Parody in A Cookbook

Pitch-perfect and admiring, this send-up-in-a-cookbook of the ubiquitous trilogy is naughty, hysterical, and totally clever. Our narrator is an "unexplored" young chicken who is, as she writes, at the mercy of a demanding foodie's trussing, carving, spatchcocking, and unbearably slow drizzling, among other bedroom, er, kitchen techniques. Before long, Miss Chicken discovers the sheer thrill of starring as the dish that is literally whipped up for dinner.

With 50 excellent chicken recipes, such as "Sticky (Chicken) Fingers," "Dripping Thighs," and "Bound Wings," our Fifty Shades serves the inexhuastible market of home cooks who just want great recipes for chicken. Let's just say our author has a way of teaching kitchen techniques so you never forget them.

Photos are hilarious.
Author is very specific with directions on how to truss a chicken.
Parodies are great fun.

After 2 decades of cooking, I have over 1,000 recipes on my computer. Yet I found several good ones in this book to type into my hard drive.

I haven't read the Fifty Shades books, but this still made me laugh here and there until the novelty wore off. I got a few good-seeming recipes to try.

I'm not a fan of the Fifty Shades novels but found this very funny and clever. The recipes were the real star though, so many of them to try and love. I hope I will be able to rub olive oil on my chicken from now on and not feel too weird :)

Dripping with inuendo, this is a salacious cookbook.

Tried several recipes in the book and they turned out well. Yes it is silly and a satire but the recipes are also worthwhile.
