Gift Ideas 2022: Cookbooks

Published on: December 16, 2022

Around this time of year we get a lot of people asking for suggestions for comics, games, and anything our humble little store holds. While it’s always a treat to help people in the store, we wanted to find other ways to help people find that special something. Today we cook up some great suggestions for the cooks in your life!

One of the highest regarded cookbooks we have is Hero’s feast: The Dungeons and Dragons cookbook. Sure, the recipes emulate those found in the world’s greatest role playing game, but the book also has something in it for all levels of chef.

If you’re aware of Marvel comics or movies you no doubt know about the merc with the mouth: Deadpool. It’s hard not to know who Deadpool is or his love of the mighty Chimichanga. It was only a matter of time before a cook book was made bearing his lovely visage, and Cooking with Deadpool is a classic every kitchen should have. Any book that shows you how to make a crab rangoon chimichanga is a win.

There are few beloved foods in the world then the pizza, and if there’s any group of radical crime fighting mutant ninja teens that love all things pizza, it’s Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pizza Cookbook is a fun for the whole family kind of cookbook, complete with classic pizza pies and some new pizza related spins on a few different types of food (the pizza ramen is one of the best in my book).

I know we’re suggesting things for a winter based holiday but when it’s cold outside some of us close our eyes and day dream of the summer time and all that comes with it. Which includes the act of grilling burgers. Now that I’ve set the mood, the next book is one that is highly regarded and just so happens to focus on burgers, meat and veggie! No doubt you’ve heard of Bob’s Burgers, and with the following it has you can bet they’d make a burger book. If you love burgers with exciting ingredients, then The Bob’s Burger’s Burger book is for you!

We wrap this gift suggestion feast with one last book for the Tolkien lover in your life, An Unexpected Cookbook: The Unofficial Book of Hobbit Cookery. Inside these pages you ll find one chapter for each traditional Hobbit meal. In addition to being based on historic recipes revised to fit Tolkien’s specific vision of the Shire, the dishes have the themes that any true fan of Tolkien will crazy for!

Of course we are always full with recommendations and this is just a small taste of the cookbooks we have. From big names like Danny Trejo and Snoop Dogg, to beloved fandoms like Nightmare Before Christmas and One Piece, if there’s a cookbook your looking for chances are we have it!
