A new art and cook-book claims to be the first of its kind dedicated to the world of bears.

‘Cooking with the Bears – Healthy Recipes by Hairy Men’ is created by Angelo Sindaco, and features a range of men who identify as bears preparing their own Italian recipes.


Photographed by Sindaco, the book also includes a preface by Mike Enders, the founder of AccidentalBear.com.


Sindaco has worked with Nike, Diesel and Chanel, and many other brands.


The 32 recipes include Gramigna (pasta) with sausages, Guinness Cake, to Folktronic Spaghetti to Alternative Caponata.

Published in the UK by Turnaround, and in Italy by Drago, the book is available now.
