    The History Shapes Cookbook drops next week 🎉

    The 24-page, full color book features disturbing, strange, and just plain gross recipes from history. You'll love it.

    It won't be available on any eBook marketplaces so I can keep it as affordable as possible. It'll be pay-what-you-can starting at $1 (for a limited time) 💸

    If you need a chuckle for cheap, sign up to be notified:
