If you’re a fan of art, surrealism, cooking, or all three, then this bizarrely picturesque cookbook is for you.

Since Salvador Dalí’s Le Diners de Gala was published in 1973, only 400 copies are thought to remain after the first and final printing. Now Taschen, a German publishing company, is re-releasing the cookbook in hardcover to the masses.

“Les Diners de Gala is uniquely devoted to the pleasures of taste…” Dalí once said of his book. “If you are a disciple of one of those calorie-counters who turn the joys of eating into a form of punishment, close this book at once; it is too lively, too aggressive, and far too impertinent for you.”

The 136 peculiar recipes that are compiled and illustrated into the manual are all based off of actual feasts that Salvador and his wife Gala would serve at parties. From toffee with pine cones, to crayfish mountains, the book is a masterpiece of dishes that stimulate the artistic eyes as well as the taste buds.
