The Reluctant CannibalsBook - 2013
A darkly humorous exploration of how a complete devotion to food can have unforeseen and shocking consequences When a group of food-obsessed academics at Oxford University form a secret dining society, they happily devote themselves to investigating exotic and forgotten culinary treasures, until a dish is suggested that takes them all by surprise. Professor Arthur Plantagenet has been told he has a serious heart problem and decides that his death should not be in vain. He sets out his bizarre plan in a will, that on his death, tests the loyalty of his closest friends, the remaining members of this exclusive dining society. A dead Japanese diplomat, police arrests, and charges of grave robbing are just some of the challenges these culinary explorers must overcome in tackling gastronomy's ultimate taboo: cannibalism.
