Rich and Tasty: Recipes for the New Class Warfare

A book proposal by Anonymous.

High Concept: It now seems inevitable that the downtrodden will succeed in wresting power, wealth and influence from the elite. But we live in America. A vast swath of the unemployed are not just disenfranchised. They are highly educated. They are discerning. And they are hungry.

When it comes time to eat the rich, these masses will not be satisfied with a Koch and a smile, or with Michael Dell on rye. These are people who went deep into debt stocking their kitchens with Italian espresso makers and complicated food processors. They are not going to want to face the revolution lacking knowledge in the finer points of preparing and presenting the new cannibalistic cuisine. This is the guide the 99% will turn to when the opportunity to feast on the fortunate presents itself.

In tight and search engine-optimized prose, Rich and Tasty will tackle the inherent problems the cook and home entertainer will encounter in serving up a plate of fresh high-frequency trader, or tenderizing a tough doyenne. Just as Julia Childs taught us to ignore the ninnies who worried about butter, so will this tome usher in a new gastronomic ethic: eating the rich is the best revenge.
