Cooking Up Controversy

An Australian publisher has had to pulp and reprint a cook-book after one recipe called for "salt and freshly ground black people" instead of black pepper. The recipe was for spelt tagliatelle with sardines and prosciutto.

"We're mortified that this has become an issue of any kind, and why anyone would be offended, we don't know," head of publishing Bob Sessions said.

The reprint cost $18,000, but stock in bookshops will not be recalled as it is "extremely hard" to do so, according to the publisher.
