Summary / Annotation


Dali being Dali submitted by on August 11, 2018, 9:01am Crazy stuff in here. I didn't make any of the recipes, just enjoyed the pictures.

Floor Wax or Dessert Topping? submitted by laurenmccarthya2 on August 6, 2019, 12:01pm A gorgeous book, with recipes that *could* be made, but are completely impractical. Come for the art and the commentary. A coffee table book you'll read cover to cover.
