COMFORT EATING WITH NICK CAVE REVIEWED
“Comfort Eating with Nick Cave” is a semi-digest sized cookbook for those Punk rock culinary start-ups. Unfortunately, the recipes require a working knowledge of kitchen warfare. If you’re not terribly familiar with eyeballing ingredients or know your way around the Whole Foods, you might be lost at points. If that’s the case, then you’re probably not the target audience for the book. That being said, I’m not sure how many of these recipes are truly Nick Cave inspired.
I like to imagine that Nick Cave is being used as more of our Red Right Handed spirit animal. Cave takes our hand through a landscape of culinary delights that make Vegan cooking sound far less disgusting to me. I’m Captain Carnivore over here and the book is winning me over. Let’s see how this line of cooking treats Morrissey.
