Mario Batali Announces The Release Of The “FUDS” Parody Cookbook, Struggles Not To Laugh


While recording a promotional video for the upcoming cookbook “FUDS: A Complete Encyclofoodia from Tickling Shrimp to Not Dying in a Restaurant“, celebrity chef Mario Batali talked about the foreword he wrote as well as some of the recipes contained therein.

As you’ll see after the jump, he started out well when listing such appetizing delights as “Six Hot Dog Weiners” and “Secret Item With Surprise Bag”, but was struggling to maintain his composure by the time he got around to “Hot Melted Crayon Wax Served in Discarded Monopoly Thimbles”.

The completely fake Brooklyn restaurant “FUDS” started gaining attention in 2012 when it distributed fake menus with similarly named dishes to attendees of New York City’s GoogaMooga festival. A book deal to reveal the bizarre recipes behind the names was scored the following year, and the title is slated for release next week.
