Nobody knows the inside of an animal quite like chef and meat enthusiast Chris Cosentino, who helms Cockscomb in San Francisco and restaurants in Portland and Napa. His latest cookbook, Offal Good, is a dense, delicious collection of recipes for his well-known favorite parts. Get ready to make “brain on drugs,” an egg and brain dish that has almost nothing in common with that cheesy 80s-era anti-drug PSA (in a good way). 

I thought the anti-drug PSAs that aired on TV in the late 1980s were funny as hell: a deep, dark voice-over, a hand holding an egg, cracking it into a pan and letting it bubble and burn. This dish is an homage to those commercials.
