  1. I was about to say totally evil but then I realised there’s not a hot (BBQ] poodle insight. In any case wool smells terrible when it’s burnt

  2. Jan,

    I was just about to exhaust my limited range of recipes and bored Cynthia with endless repetitions of pasta with tomato sauce, pesto, sugo and carboara during these corona weeks. What a pleasure to be able to vary our diet and I was particularly intrigued by your hipbone and python soup – only one small problem it was hard to get a fresh python these days but furtunately and thanks to google I managed to find the delivery of frozen python by the kilo. Simply a sumptuous meal deserving 3 Michelin stars!

    1. Gunter, a medium sized boa constrictor would also work nicely and I know they are available on the Amazon! And another tip, if you head to EBray you could pick up a nice old donkey. Minced roughly and stewed in whey too much whey you can make a passable Mule Gruel to warm you up on chilly nights in the labyrinth. So here’s hoping we can feast together again soon. Xxx

  3. What a brilliant body of work.
    I am working on a recipe for Beaubeau nut and furball soup, but finding a Baubeau not is proving a bit of a challenge
    LOVE the artwork.

    1. Thank you Suzanne, I’m in my happy place dreaming up this silly stuff. And may I offer a suggestion that in place of a Beaubeau nut you substitute PeeNuts. I know your little puppy Beau can easily help you source these. Xxx

    1. Hi Anna, so glad you found a giggle in Trycelerytop’s first booklet. I now know that 3 year olds go “ew” and “that’s yucky” – which of course is the ultimate mark of successful target marketing! Xxx

  5. Jan, thank you soooo much for including me in the Cryptic Limpet’s latest doings. I was wondering where she had been. Maybe stuck under a rock at the tide line? But seriously, you had me laughing out loud! Your “recipes” are wonderful, if hard to swallow, and your illustrations are “pieces de resistance”. Your cleverness knows no bounds. Michael

    1. Michael, you speak the truth, I have been a lazy cryptic limpet, Delighted though that you found some entertainment in Recipes for the Really Ravenous. I think our new friend Trycelerytop might even have a few more up her hairy sleeve…Jan

  6. BRAVO! This is a work of vital parts contributing organically to our body of culinary literature. And the wary reader can rest assured that all creations are readily digestible, including Kids‘knee pie! A nice crunch to that one. Already looking forward to Ms Limpet‘s next collection! She is welcome to include some of our own family favorites (Heel Parmesan and also the particularly versatile Chop Gooey).

    1. Ah, Ms Baer, I’m chuffed that your Inner Kiddo has come out to play with mine! Can you please send the recipes for both your Heel Parmesan and Chop Gooey. They both sound right on theme, deliciously disgusting – and maybe you have some others that you would be happy to share in this safe forum?…Jan

  7. Jan, so glad to receive the Cryptic Limpet again. Laughted a lot about the recipes for your grandson. Suspect that they’re as much for adults as for children. Very clever and very funny. Thanks! Thanks!
