Lydia Lunch: The Need to Feed: Recipes for Developing a Healthy Obsession for Deeply Satisfying Foods
Written by Lydia Lunch
About This Book
Underground legend Lydia Lunch presents witty and provocative recipes for feeding your friends and lovers nourishing, deeply satisfying food while maintaining a hedonistic downtown lifestyle. Lydia Lunch earned her name from cooking up banquet feasts out of whatever ingredients were on hand for fellow starving artists and musicians, including Sonic Youth, Suicide, Henry Rollins, the Dead Boys, and the Butthole Surfers. In this book, she draws on her experiences and the celebration of a healthy obsession for foods that not only satisfy our craven desires but are also nutritious, delicious, and exactly what a body hard at work and play needs. This book serves as a provocative guide to setting the mood as well as the table for a rousing three-course meal—whether a quick pick-me-up after a long night, a party for a gang of pranksters, or a much-needed weekend detox to replenish the body after being depleted by glorious overindulgence. Written with sass and dripping with sexy personal asides from the racy author, this volume is an irresistible addition to every hedonist’s library.
