About this deal

So why it may not be my go to book for my next bento box, I already have a great list of people to invite over and send them home with an after dinner copy. She began her blog, Fiction-Food Café , focusing on food found in books, movies, TV shows, and video games, in early 2013. Thank you so much to Nadine Estero, Quarto Publishing Group – Rock Point, and NetGalley for this lovely ARC! The author also includes quotes from many animes throughout, corresponding to the foods from said anime.

Miso paste: Available in white (shiso), red (aka), or black (douchi), this paste is made from fermented soybeans.This cookbook is put together in a very thorough manner with balance between the food and the related anime. Shockingly, the recipes in this book are easy enough for anyone to try—even the rice-stuffed omelettes! recipes dedicated to anime and inspired by the greatest works of recent years, from Naruto to Attack on Titan, from chef and pop-culture expert, Thibaud Villanova, author of The Unofficial Zelda Cookbook and The Unofficial Ghibli Cookbook. I am a lover of facts, so these sections were interesting and added to my desire to make the food presented. The author chose an easy route, she took common food dishes seen in various anime and gives you a basic recipe for the dish, then tells you what anime that dish is seen in.

As a baker, I found the dessert section to be the most interesting, but there's a little something for everyone in here.

Bring your favorite anime foods to life with 75 recipes — from traditional Japanese favorites to inventive recreations — that are easy to make, fun, and delicious. The Geeky Bartender Drinks is your chance to sip your way through your favorite sci-fi and fantasy worlds—Game of Thrones, Legend of Zelda, Star Trek, and more. I thought this was such a fun recipe book, especially since I’ve always wanted to try food from all the anime I watch. Do you ever watch your favorite anime series and start craving the crunch of crispy seafood or the warmth of delicious noodles and broth or the fluffiness of soft, airy cakes? There is a quick introduction that I can relate to as someone who has watched anime since they were a child.

There are plenty of delicious-looking photographs of the intended result, though being picky I might have liked a few smaller images of the food being prepped, but that's hardly standard if my 3 existing cookbooks are anything to go by!We can't really talk about cookbooks for anime geeks without actually showing the granddaddy of all anime-centric cookbooks, can we?

This book is very interesting and will become valuable gift to attract anime lover or at least readers who like me interest with Japanesse cuisine. Embark on a foodie’s journey through the world of anime—and learn to recreate delicious dishes from your favorite series—with this practical guide to anime food.

The food in anime can act as a window onto Japanese culture and history, and can bring even more meaning to the scene it’s featured in. You can make delicious desserts like Kero’s Purin (Japanese custard pudding), the too cute to eat Panda Shaved Ice Parfait, and Kiki’s Chocolate Cake. Out of all the little subcultures geekdom has birthed, few have the natural inclination to add cooking to their culture like anime geeks do. I'm not much of a cook so a lot of the recipes here look too elaborate to attempt, but never say never.Delving into the cultural and historical aspects of the food and seeing how it’s woven into the background or narrative of an anime is just so interesting to me. This is a well thought out book and perfect for those learning how to cook or anyone wanting to try making Asian dishes for the first time.
