Fat Brad, The Cookbook

Cookbook Fat Brad is a surreal ode to the on-screen eating habits of a certain William Bradley Pitt...

Who is this for? ‘Fans, shit cooks, pro cooks, film buffs, your cousin, your girlfriend, her brother, your boss, his boss, Angelina Jolie, gardeners, grovellers, your mum, film students, master-chefs, chef’s masters, mast makers.’

Fat Brad, The Cookbook by Long Prawn Cookbooks

That’s the audience Lauren Stephens, Laura Clauscen and Fred Mora — the folk behind Long Prawn — are targeting with their niche cookbook: Fat Brad. An ode to a man renowned for being anything but fat. Roping in photographer Ben Clement, designer Tristan Ceddia, and official food bods Ali Currey-Voumard and Mietta Coventry, the team of surrealists have comprehensively explored the fictional eating habits of a certain William Bradley Pitt, in the first of what will be the oddest series of cookbooks ever seen.

From Snatch‘s bare-knuckle boxer Mickey O’Neil to suave criminal Rusty Ryan in Ocean’s Eleven, the gang have brought Pitt’s on-screen eats to life and, potentially, your kitchen — through actual recipes and sensationally styled photography. The 52-page cookbook has been printed as an edition of 1,000, and has just been debuted at Tokyo Art Book Fair 2016 prior to a Melbourne launch party 6 October; head over to longprawn.com for details on how to pick up your copy.
