Authors: food beast
I call it the Harry Potter tipping point: nothing can get that famous that quickly, and not inspire an inordinate amount of parodies. Recently, the media’s wittiest have been going after the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, the adult, fan-fictionalized BDSM version of Twilight, resulting in SNL skits, Twitter posts, talk show retellings, and even a musical. So, it was only a matter of time before the foodie world got a hold of it, too.
Unfortunately, the countless innuendos to be made don’t really put me in the mind for food. In fact, I prefer all my food and BDSM to be separate. Apparently, I’m in the minority, if this YouTube trailer for the parody cookbook “50 Shades of Chicken” is anything to go by. Featuring pictures of semi-nude men handling (read: groping) raw chicken (breasts), and recipes titles like “Dripping Thighs” and “Chicken with a Lardon”, the book/video seek to…I dunno, sell more copies?
Aziza Sullivan has always enjoyed three things in excess: food, writing, and sleeping. While the first two are happily combined, the third tends to get in the way, since it turns out the average reader is uninterested in sleep blogs. She also enjoys coffee, probably too much, if there is such a thing.
