This month I came across some pretty cool cookbooks and it renewed my love of reading them. I love a good cookbook. I find that sitting down with a nice cup of tea and a good cookbook can relax you to no end. Browsing the pages full of yummy foods and pretty pictures can make an hour pass by in a blur. I’ve decided every month I’ll post a few that i really love and let you all see what recipes I’m trying. This month I’m loving two cookbooks that are inspired by TV problems which makes me doublely happy!
Feeding Hannibal: A Connoisseur’s Cookbook
by Janice Poon
Feeding Hannibal: A Connoisseur’s Cookbook is a collection of easy-to-follow recipes inspired by the show and created by its food stylist, Janice Poon. Each recipe is accompanied by fascinating insider’s anecdotes, delightful artwork and revealing behind-the-scenes photos of stars and crew on the set of Hannibal.
Feeding Hannibal: A Connoisseur’s Cookbook, has some weird yet wonderful recipes and it is beautiful. It has over 150 recipes, broken into several categories from Appetizers to Deserts and Drinks. The book is full of pictures of the cast and the beautiful exotic food that they ate onscreen was authentic cuisine, often prepared by Poon. Some weird things I learnt reading this book. Blood is sold in half liters, but don’t worry, it freezes well!That it takes about four parts of pig loin to make an Eddie Izzard leg but only three to make a Gillian Anderson leg. Woman have smaller legs don’t ya know! Also you can brew people beer which I’m sure is yummy LOL This book has a wide range of dishes and drinks, even some that didn’t make it on the screen. I would definitely recommend this cookbook for any foodies or fans of the TV show.
