Witches' Brew: Cookbook FAIL!

Saturday, April 17, 2010

Cookbook FAIL!

An Australian publisher had to scrap and re-print a cookbook after one of its recipes called for "salt and freshly ground black people" instead of black pepper.

Penguin Group Australia had to reprint 7,000 copies of the "Pasta Bible" last week, costing them about $18K. But, some of the books were already stocked in book stores, so those will not be recalled. I guess you can look for them on eBay!

Almost every one of the recipes in the book listed salt and freshly ground black pepper, but a misprint occurred on just one page. The publisher calls it a "silly mistake."

Ya think?

I'm sure black people taste pretty good...well, with all the chicken and stuff we eat.  We're probably very well grased and marinated.  But, I really don't want them in my pasta.
