John I read an excerpt of this book in Lapham's Quarterly at least one or two years ago. The excerpt was a very detailed description of cutting up an onion, how when you slice it open, it expands like it's been under pressure, and the halves do not fit together. I looked up the book it was from at the time -- it was a long sort of novella written perhaps by a monk in which he describes how to prepare an ox or lamb or something over the course of several days. It's basically a 200 page prose recipe with spiritual overtones.

I think the title may be something like "How to cook a lamb in three days" or something.

John Woops, found it. It's called "Supper of the lamb" https://books.google.com/books?id=pAe...
