OK, I’m sorry—that headline is really fucked up. But I can’t un-see these words:
Semen is not only nutritious, but it also has a wonderful texture and amazing cooking properties. Like fine wine and cheeses, the taste of semen is complex and dynamic. Semen is inexpensive to produce and is commonly available in many, if not most, homes and restaurants. Despite all of these positive qualities, semen remains neglected as a food. This book hopes to change that. Once you overcome any initial hesitation, you will be surprised to learn how wonderful semen is in the kitchen. Semen is an exciting ingredient that can give every dish you make an interesting twist.
Would you believe this isn’t the only semen-themed cookbook I’ve encountered? And this cover image is perfect. I prefer my flan sans semen, although I imagine I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference texturally.
So with that unfortunate discovery, I went on to find a whole collection of really fucking weird cookbooks that no one in their right mind would want to find their dinner in, and yet many probably have. If you’re looking for meal inspo, I really hope you don’t find it here.
