I have the next installment of the cookbook series: movies. What better way to immerse yourself in a film than with food? These books will give you the recipes to do just that with drinks and food. I love to cook anyway, my baking skill needs improvement, so having the opportunity to eat like my favorite movie characters is fantastic. Let’s see what I found.
Back To The Future Cookbook ~ I love Doc and Marty! This is a cookbook I would love to get. The recipes are broken up into the different years the guys visited. The names of the recipes are cute. The names are things like “Make Like A Tree And Leaf Chef Salad, DeLorean Whitewall Doughnuts, and What Are You, Chicken? Sandwich. They do a good job explaining tools, techniques, and treats.
The Unofficial Hogwarts For The Holidays Cookbook ~ This excellent cookbook has recipes divided into seasons. Then it is divided into evens like the train ride to Hogwarts and the Yule Ball. There are recipes like Toffee-Filled Easter Eggs, Bouillabaisse, and Yorkshire Pudding. The food looks yummy.
Cocktails For The Movies ~ This book rocks. It gives good overviews, descriptions, tips, tricks, and explanations of the tools and whatnot needed for cocktails. The drinks aren’t broken up into sections. Instead, there is a list with the drink, the movie, and the actress/actor who drank it. There are definite classics like a martini and a screwdriver, but there are also movie-specific drinks like Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.
Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Cookbook ~ Just the picture on the cover makes me want to dig in. I am more of a Trekkie than a Star Wars person, but I must admit some of the movies are good. No matter what, it opens up a whole new galaxy of recipes. The pictures of food look fabulous in this book. The art is impressive too. I like that the recipes are broken into sections. These sauces sound interesting. There are sauces like Dagobah Slug Syrup and Christophsian Sugar.
The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook ~ This cookbook is definitely for fans of the movie. The recipes are broken into cute sections such as “From The Witches’ Spellbook” and “Life-Giving Fall Favorites.” There is a section for learning the basics of making pasta and pie crusts. They sound delicious. Tools For The ‘Torture Chamber'” is cute and helpful. I love the art and pictures.
Do any of these look appetizing? Are there any other movies you would like to see cookbooks for? I would love to see one for the Princess Bride. Oh! Or Spaceballs! That would rock. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Until next week…
