Fifty Shades of Chicken

50 shades cover

This is a real book. Based on the 401 reviews on, it’s actually a good cookbook, if you can stop snickering long enough to follow the recipes.

A few samples:

Dripping Thighs
Sticky Chicken Fingers
Vanilla Chicken
Chicken with a Lardon
Bacon-Bound Wings
Spatchcock Chicken
Learning-to-Truss-You Chicken
Holy Hell Wings
Mustard-Spanked Chicken

The book’s web site now has a video featuring the Spatchcock Chicken. I can’t embed it, because YouTube thinks it’s only for mature audiences. Can’t imagine why; it’s just about chicken…

At any rate, if you’re not at work and don’t have small children in hearing range, you might want to visit the site and watch the video.

(Hat tip to Lisa.)

    I think this book (and the video, too, of course) definitively redefine the term “food porn.” 😉

    Oh yes. You might also want to youtube for LaurenGrov on the subject. As to Fifty Shades of Grey, a radio commentator summed it up as “An authoress who cannot write meets a public not accustomed to read”. Couldn’t agree more (I closed the book before reaching page fifty).

      Setting aside the fact that “authoress” is a ridiculous term (does this person write? Then she’s an author, period), the review does sound spot on. I’m impressed you almost made it to page fifty, and even more impressed with a friend of mine who got all the way to page eighty. I couldn’t bear to read more than a few pages, but that was enough to recognize the book as badly written fanfic that somehow went through an entire editing process at a major mainstream publisher and *still* emerged as badly written fanfic — just with the Twilight vampire stuff stripped out.

      The screenplay is supposed to be better…however, my mother heard a radio review of it that said “Some perfume ads have more plot.”

    Watched the video and instantly thought how much our dear friend Kay would have loved it.
