From the Back Cover
Signature Recipes Surreal presentations, unconventional cooking methods, and bold flavor combinations—Bob’s trademark recipes are all here in this best-of collection (including many that have never appeared in print before). Most are simple enough to be incorporated into any cooking repertoire yet are so addictive that you’ll want to make them over and over again.
Surreal Etiquette Dysfunctional kitchens, mismatched cutlery, and culinary faux pas are no match for Bob’s confidence-inspiring tips. Learn how to set up a highly functioning workspace and host unforgettable dinner parties, all the while flying in the face of convention.
Epic Stories Jaw-dropping narratives of taking North America by storm in a Toastermobile, harvesting grapes at a legendary Burgundian winery, and inadvertently lighting a guest on fire during an Australian TV appearance all chronicle this adrenaline junkie’s voracious appetite for adventure.
“If Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, and Salvador Dalí had a ménage à trois, this would be their love child.” —Steve Perrine, Men’s Health

He gives really good solid advice, filled with common sense but again in a fun spirit
Included is setting up your kitchen and preparing for a party. The recipe sections include: cocktail bites (Bee stings are not to be missed and are pretty simple), soups and salads, stovetop recipes, BBQ, (including pizza), desserts, breakfasts and his surreal food- lamb that looks like a cupcake and meatloaf that looks like carrot cake (that is very good and not that hard to prepare). Recipes range from the simple to complicated.
A tutorial on making Caesar salad and 20 ways to avoid making dessert are incorporated - which suggests among other things, to serve penny candy. Who wouldn't love that
This is a different type of cookbook, out of the ordinary, not for a beginning cook, unless they really want to be adventurous; but for anyone who enjoys food, has fun with it and wants to try something unusual.
