The least practical cookbook of all time!
Judging by the cover—let's please just agree that that's going deep enough—one doesn't cook casseroles; one simply allows a troupe of livestock and crustaceans to pull together a routine and whip something up.
Hence, the cow juggles a couple mushrooms, a scallion, and a pineapple—along with a wok, a pot, and a tureened crab; the crab begins his pantomime act; and the sheep prepares for some classic sleight-of-hand.
And then, the finale: with a flourish, the cow leaps into the oven, the sheep flings herself onto a spit, and the crab drops the lid to seal in his "juices."
It promises to be a magical evening. And you didn't have to lift a finger!
