Recipe Calls for 'Freshly Ground Black People'
What lurks in cookbooks?   (?roland)

Some 7,000 copies of an Australian cookbook are being reprinted after readers discovered a recipe calling for "freshly ground black people." Books already on the shelves will not be recalled. Penguin Group Australia spokesman Bob Sessions said he found the misprint "quite forgivable" because "proofreading a cookbook is extremely difficult." If "anyone is small-minded enough to complain about this very silly mistake, then we will happily replace" the book, he added. The bizarre ingredient was called for in a Pasta Bible recipe for tagliatelle with sardines and prosciutto, notes UPI.
