Amusing Cookbook Title: "Revolutionary Chinese Cookbook."

No, really!

The cookbook is actually titled "Revolutionary Chinese Cookbook." Seriously. Here it is on Amazon, and it's even been nominated for a cookbook prize.

Perhaps I am just an evil history student, but the name of this cookbook made me laugh. I'm sure the cookbook has nothing to do with revolutionary Maoist China, but the entire idea about using the words "revolutionary" and "cookbook" TOGETHER when revolutionary big shot Mao caused mass hunger and famine...!

What would a recipe look like?

Take 1 pound of grass and twigs, stir fry with fresh leaves, eat immediately and die slowly of starvation.

Oops, did I say that aloud?
