No, he says one should stay away from red meat, salt, milk, cream and especially cheese (why milk and cheese, I wonder?).
He's into healthy food by the early 80's and says you should only eat fish and fowl, fresh produce and drink juice, and remember to get all the vitamins.
Bukowski not only cooked his own damn cuisine, but he was a fine cook, a source tells me. Retired print hack from the SF Chronicle said he visited Bukowski with a photographer to shoot his pic, and Bukowski turned out chicken Sauternes for dinner. Surprised everyone.
She called me in to dinner. There was salad, iced tea and a chicken
stew. It was quite good. I was a terrible cook. All I could fry were steaks,
although I made a good beef stew, especially when drunk. I liked to
gamble with my beef stews. I put almost everything into them and
sometimes got away with it.
Here's what MARINA said, when she was visiting us in Germany in 2016:
"Sometimes we would go to his apartment and I loved having him cook for me. He usually would make steak and lima beans, so those became my favorite foods. Most kids I knew hated lima beans, but I loved them, because that was, what he made for me.
He would make fried eggs for breakfast or lunch. I would always eat the whites and give him the yolks. He would say: How can you do that? The yolk is the best part!, but I wasn't convinced."
