My druid cousin and I are co-authoring a cookbook of ancient and modern Irish recipes. The book is divided into four sections, each section relating to the four major druid festivals/holidays. Each section gives a history of each holiday and how it relates to modern holidays/celebrations, with a selection of modern and ancient recipes. She gives a serious interpretation of the holidays and I give a more humorous interpretation. Anyway, thatís it in a nutshell.

Sheís the druid, Iím the chef. We are at an impasse on what to call the book. Sheís thinking something to do with cauldrons. Iím not. If it is picked up, the title will probably change. Frankly, Iím more concerned about the recipes than I am about the title of the book at this point. However, she emails or calls me at least three times a week with another idea and I figured if you lot give me some ideas, I could keep her off my back while I kitchen test more recipes.

Any ideas for a title?

Come on, is this really a question? Just call it "To Serve Man" and be done with it. :D

(I loved that episode.)

A fantastic Twilight Zone ep, wherein aliens come to Earth to solve all mankind's problems, offering up a book with cures to cancer - written in their alien tongue.

Then they start taking shiploads of visitors to their planet, while a (lovely young) researcher works to translate the book - the title of which is To Serve Man.

Meanwhile, a jaded (is there any other kind?) reporter decides to take one of the offered trips to visit said alien world - but as he's boarding the ship, the lovely young researcher rushes up to the line to scream: "The book! To Serve Man . . . it's a COOKBOOK!"

The jaded reporter is hustled onboard the alien ship and spends his last days telling us what happened and how he got there, while the aliens are trying to fatten him up :)

Yum! Jaded reporter, it's what's for dinner.

A Twilight Zone episode, based on a story by Damon Knight (who also wrote a book about writing).

Thank you. I don't watch a great deal of television. Mainly the news. I think I've only seen two episodes of TZ.

Depends on who your market is. If you want to pitch it towards Jane Average who thinks it would be nice to try something new when the family comes over for St. Patricks' Day Dinner, that's one thing.

If a grove is getting together for a fire feast and you're marketing it towards their high priest, you might choose something different.

Me, I'd just call it "Cauldron o'Plenty" :)

Wonderful ideas. Thank you all. I suggested "Erin Go'Burp" to my cousin early this morning. I think she's still laughing.
