The garage may be on fire, but hey, at least dinner's good.
Nothing says "I'm sorry" quite like food. Take it from noted asshole Zach Golden. He's discovered an important asshole loophole: If you put a delicious meal on the table, everybody will forget you're an unspeakably terrible person...until you do something else terrible. But hey, that's why there's dessert. From Pork and Chive Dumplings to Veal Ossobuco to Coconut Macaroons, Golden is guaranteed to have a dish up his sleeve that will undo any bad deed. He also probably has something sharp and potentially rusty up his sleeve, too, so don't make any sudden motions. Cooking (for A**holes) serves up 50 unbelievable (but true) stories of subterfuge, malfeasance, and impropriety, and the delicious recipes to help any asshole out of a bind.
"Here at Study Breaks, we like laughing. Given our literacy, love of laughing and adoration for a**holes [this book] is absolutely.... perfect. Golden is a terrible person...who's also an excellent writer. And his book will make you laugh...and cringe...and really just feel a whole lot better about yourself as a human being." --Study Breaks Magazine
"From world cuisine to delicious desserts, from mixed drinks to meals that might mend fences, these recipes are often funny in their own right, as Golden's singular bluntness and gift for envelope-pushing offensiveness keep things interesting." --San Francisco Book Review
