You know when you’re watching a Brad Pitt movie and Brad Pitt is eating food in the movie and you’re not sure which you want more, Brad Pitt or the food? Now you can have your Brad and eat it, too, thanks to Fat Brad: The Cookbook, the “definitive exploration into the on-screen eating habits of William Bradley ‘Brad’ Pitt,” as publisher Long Prawn puts it.
The book reads like fan fiction by a preteen girl on MasterChef Junior. Chefs Ali Currey-Voumard and Mietta Coventry recreated 50 dishes that various Pitt characters eat, from Tyler Durden’s seafood bisque in Fight Club and Rusty Ryan’s carpark burger in Ocean’s 11 to the “Game Bird with Taters and Guinness Gravy” Mickey O’Neil enjoys in Snatch. Ben Clement‘s photographs of the artfully messy dishes are food porn of the highest order.
“We loved the brilliant disparity between Brad’s on-screen penchant for shitty food and his god-like body,” Fred Mora, one of the three founders of Long Prawn, told It’s Nice That. While the cinematic photos serve as wry commentary on American gluttony and celebrity worship, the recipes are totally legit, tested by top chefs, and not the sort you’ll want to burn after reading.
