Cooking for Wizards, Warriors and Dragons presents recipes inspired by all of your favorite fantasy foods from a wide variety of popular books, TV shows and films.
Cooking for Wizards, Warriors and Dragons presents an extraordinary collection of recipes inspired by the most popular and respected fantasy literature, films and TV series of all time. There are 125 mouth-watering recipes in all, including fantastic dishes suggested by Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher, George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice, N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth Trilogy, Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time, and many others.
Some dishes are well-known – ones that passionate fans have long wished they could taste (Elven Lembas bread, anyone?). Others capture the mood and emotions of a particularly memorable scene, such as the meal that was eaten prior to Game of Thrones’ fan favorite Battle of the Bastards. Accompanying each recipe is an introductory essay that shines a bit of light on the tales, heroes, villains or histories that inspired it. Readers will also find sidebars and features that provide even more intriguing insights, trivia and fantasy-related fun.
Forty beautiful illustrations appear throughout, rendered by noted fantasy artist Tim Foley. As such, the book is an artifact of sorts, with yellowed, time-worn pages and medieval-style design work that lend the overall package the feel of an ancient grimoire – perhaps discovered in a long-forgotten crypt or wizard’s castle. Either way, it’s a cookbook treasure sure to please hungry readers of any realm.
