Care For A Bowl Of Pop Tart Soup?

Giga Bites: The Hacker Cookbook
Jenz Johnson (1994)
This book was recently shared on Twitter by @dosnostalgic.  It's an actual cookbook with recipes that are allegedly "the best kept secrets from the high tech hallways of Silicon Valley".  At first glance, I thought this might make for a fun kitchen project - find a recipe or two that looks interesting and give it a shot.  After about three minutes of browsing through recipes for things like Liverwurst & Anchovy Tub. Paper Bag Surprise and Cold Pop Tart Soup, I decided against it.  They've even got a recipe for Breakfast Cheetos that makes use of soy sauce and mustard.

The whole book is available for free on, so you can go ahead if any of these things sound good to you.  Don't say I didn't warn you.
