This reprint features all 136 recipes over 12 chapters, specially illustrated by Dal , and organized by meal courses, including aphrodisiacs. The illustrations and recipes are accompanied by Dal 's extravagant musings on subjects such as dinner conversation: The jaw is our best tool to grasp philosophical knowledge.
