The opulent dinner parties thrown by Salvador Dalí and his wife and muse, Gala were the stuff of legend. Dalí published a cookbook in 1973, Les diners de Gala, which reveals some of the sensual, imaginative, and exotic elements that made up their notorious gatherings. For the First time in over 40 Years Taschen has finally made this rare book available again.

The illustrations and recipes are accompanied by Dalí’s extravagant musings on subjects such as dinner conversation.

Since starting the project, McCor has also taken photos in cities across the world.
