    Interesting to read that the Dali Cookbook is so rare. My partner has a pristine copy of it that he inherited from his mother, who received it as a Christmas present from my partner’s ex wife well over 40 years ago.

    She worked in the same bookshop as me back in the 1970s and it stocked the Dali Cookbook at the time. It was probably quite expensive even back then, but certainly not as much as it is now worth.

    It’s a book I don’t think I’d heard of before. That said, the 70s was the peak of Dalinian product production—several of the books I have date from that period—so it might not have seemed so special at the time.
