There’s something alchemical about cooking—a kind of alchemy that can be quite reminiscent of how seasons change one into the next with patience and wisdom. In this season of witchcraft, magic, and mystery, I hope you’ll join me in making some cauldrons bubble.
It’s been three months of quarantine. I’ve made each type of dinner possible at least five times. ... My creativity is running thin, but my appetite for a change in food is growing. It’s about time for a radical change.
Now that a lot of people are home and bored, it’s the perfect time to start learning to cook new things. So, here’s a list of geeky and nerdy cookbooks full of your favorite fictional meals.
If there’s one thing we love as much as books, it’s food! There’s nothing better than eating some good food while you dive into your favorite literary world. But, are you ever sitting there, happy as can be, when suddenly your whole world is turned upside down because the characters are eating some delicious food, and now all you can think about is eating the exact food they’re eating, no matter how far-fetched? Reading experience ruined. Well, the day has finally come. No longer will you be tortured by fantastical cabbage soup or just plain old chicken nuggets. We look out for you here at Bookstr, and we’ve compiled a list of cookbooks that will tell you exactly how to bring foods from your favorite worlds to your own table. Bon appetit!
