"50 Shades of.... Chicken"

On Friday I received an email telling me about a new book coming out next week by F.L. Fowler. I was lucky to get a sneak peek at the book set to be released Tuesday, November 13th. It's the steamy tale of 50 Shades of Chicken. Okay, I imagine many people are probably clicking off this page pretty quick now. Maybe thinking, "Oh God No! Here we go again!" I can hear the doors slamming. But wait folks... before you leave, It's just a cookbook! Those that stayed to read are probably asking, "What food porn now?"  It's a cookbook well a chicken cookbook. I admit that before clicking to check out the book I was probably thinking the same thing.
Here is the book trailer for 50 Shades of Chicken....
The Recipe Club who uploaded the book trailer to YouTube says that 50 Shades of Chicken is about...
"A young, free-range chicken. A dominating, ravenous chef. A naughty tale of fowl play. If Fifty Shades of Grey left you hungry and lusting for more (more, more!), satisfy your culinary kink with Fifty Shades of Chicken, a titillating collection of tied-and-true recipes bound to make every meal a turn-on: Dripping Thighs, Learning to Truss You, Erect Chicken, Chicken with a Lardon, Happy Ending Chicken For more titillating content from Fifty Shades of Chicken, including free recipes, @50shadeschicken Twitter feed, and a playlist of "Music to Cluck to," visit 50 Shades of Chicken webpage." 
 I visited the 50 Shades of Chicken webpage on Friday when I received the news of this new book. They have a recipe for one of their dishes Mustard Spanked Chicken on their website. Hilarious and yes  the recipe sounds delicious! 
I'm wondering though, how do you feel about an author naming their book 50 Shades, after such a controversial best seller, even if it is just a cookbook? Do you think it was pretty clever to jump on the 50 Shades bandwagon? OR a bit of a Risky move? You be the judge. I'd love to hear your opinions!

  1. Trailer was funny! I wonder if chicken bondage will now catch on?

  2. YES!!! Wonder if they'll do a sequel with turkey? 50 Shades Turkey-er? xD

  3. @Alex- I agree on the trailer and hilarious about chicken bondage. :)
    @L Diane- I thought too, I mean all the 50 Shades going before it she definitely won't have too much trouble on the promotion thing, but I also can't help thinking about the risks too. There are so many out there that want nothing to do with the 50 Shades of anything. Can't wait to see what recipes are featured in the book.
    @Sarah- Hilarious! Oh yeah other ways to cook up a Paula Deans TurDuck'N!
