How about Dope Fiend Sandwich or Prizzon Po Carcass Casserole? Those are just a few of the tasty dishes featured in the 163-page book. There's a helpful glossary of prison slang in the back, too. cookbook grew out of a community college class on how to make the transition to the outside. soon-to-be-released classmates discovered they had such talents as cooking, writing and cartooning. book includes short facts and insights into prison life.
