When Friedrich Nietzsche made angel food cake, did the angel survive the encounter? When Sigmund Freud handled raw fish, where did his thoughts take him? Exactly what did Dorothy Parker mean by the term aaParker House Rolls?aa And how did Ernest Hemingway handle his favorite bullfight souvenirs? Literary humor for those who like cookery to insinuate lifeas hard questions, Nietzscheas Angel Food Cake allows 22 cultural monoliths to share aatheiraa succulent recipes.
