Picks and Pans Review: The Wonnerful World of Food

UPDATED 04/13/1981 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 04/13/1981 at 01:00 AM EST

by Amy Goldin and Robert Kushner

The perfect gift for someone who's planning to go on a hunger strike, this book is a compendium of disgusting-sounding yet authentic recipes culled from miscellaneous published sources, including the cans and boxes some of the ingredients come in. Lamentably, but perhaps understandably, the authors, one a New York artist, the other an art critic, don't cite their sources. The recipes are for such things as peanut butter-garlic bread, beer omelet, geed (boiled ox penis), broccoli granola and earthworm-butterscotch candy. The book does have a major weakness: It doesn't tell where to buy such ingredients as earthworms or ox penis. On the other hand, maybe that's just as well. (Robert Kushner, 87-89 Leonard St., New York, N.Y. 10013, $5)
