50 shades of… Chicken?

It’s the fastest selling paperback of all time, now a parody cookery book inspired by erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey is to be released.

With recipes that include “Mustard Spanked Chicken” and “Dripping Thighs”, the Forager was a little disturbed to read the blurb offered on the book’s promotional website –

If Fifty Shades of Grey left you hungry and lusting for more (more, more!), then sink your teeth into this naughty tale of a young, free-range, and very fresh chicken who, like Anastasia Steele, finds herself at the mercy of a dominating man; in this case, a kinky and very ravenous chef.

The author, who writes under the pen name F.L Fowler, apparently told People magazine that Fifty Shades of Grey had really resonated with her. “One day as I was tying up the ankles of a chicken for roasting, I realized why some of the scenes in the book were so strikingly familiar. It turns out I’ve been practicing BDSM for years – but with poultry.”

The author plans to remain anonymous – “I’ve been developing recipes for years. But this is the first time I’ve ever delved into this dark, forbidden side of poultry preparation.”

Fifty Shades of Chicken will be on sale from the 13th of November
