Cooking with Poo

That’s right, there is a cook book out there with lots of recipes for cooking with poo. However, don’t be alarmed, ‘Cooking with Poo’ is written by Bangkok chef Saiyuud Diwong whose nickname is Poo – which is Thai for “crab”. It has won this year’s Diagram Prize for oddest book title of the year.

Poo runs a cookery school for locals and tourists in the city’s largest slum, alongside the charitable organisation that published the book. Anji Barker, a senior social worker at the charity Urban Neighbours of Hope said, “Poo has sold 6,000 books and her classes are fully booked out. She is not just helping to raise her own family out of poverty, but is employing 20 other poor slum residents.”
