“Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure—that of being Salvador Dalí,” Salvador Dalí famously said. There’s no denying that the Spanish artist knew how to live life to the fullest. At the very least, he and his wife, Gala, certainly knew how to throw a dinner party, if legend is to be believed. Stories tell of lavishly decorated tables filled with food prepared by the finest chefs, and wild animals set free in the dining room, including Dalí’s constant companion, his pet ocelot Babou.


Originally printed in 1973, Dalí’s Les Diners de Gala has been republished by Taschen for the first time, bringing back to life the fantastical affairs at the Dalí residence with Surrealist illustrations that range from the eccentric to the bizarrely beautiful. Recipes accompany the illustrations, but considering this is Dalí’s work, expect to find lobster, meat, and pastries transformed into renditions, unlike anything you’ve seen before.


As Dalí writes in his volume’s introduction, “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.” To order at National Book Store.
