On Nov. 13, an established food industry professional plans to release anonymously Fifty Shades of Chicken, a cookbook from publisher Clarkson Potter that is inspired by the erotic literary phenomenon Fifty Shades of Grey.
"Like so many others, Fifty Shades of Grey resonated for me," the writer – working under the pen name FL Fowler – tells PEOPLE in an email. "It evoked something I'd never been able to express. Then one day as I was tying up the ankles of a chicken for roasting, I realized why some of the scenes in the book were so strikingly familiar. It turns out I've been practicing BDSM for years – but with poultry."
With that realization came a plan, and a journey into some serious food porn.
"The recipe and headnotes follow a chef and his chicken on an emotional journey very much like the original trilogy," adds the author. "You start with an overbearing cook and a pigheaded chicken but by the end they're spanking and tying each other up like soul mates. There's a bit of Christian and Anastasia Steele in every dish."
For now, the author plans to remain anonymous. "I've been developing recipes for years. But this is the first time I've ever delved into this dark, forbidden side of poultry preparation," explains the writer. "And when it comes to sexing up a family dinner, a little privacy can be a good thing."
