The Unofficial Witcher Cookbook: Daringly Delicious Recipes for Fans of the Fantasy Classic is a Must Have for Die Hard Fans of the Show (Review)

Do you watch The Witcher series on Netflix?  If so, were you saddened to hear that Henry Cavill was leaving, and would be replaced with Liam Hemsworth?  The of the main reasons why I and so many other people tuned in to watch the series was to see Henry as the Witcher.  I wonder how the series will be once it returns with a new leading man?  Only time will tell, but I will definitely give it a chance as Liam Hemsworth is a good actor, too, and nice to look at it. :-)

As I wipe away tears from the news of Henry Cavill leaving, and wait for the next season of this popular series to return to Netflix, I find myself in my kitchen cooking up daringly delicious recipes from "The Unofficial Witcher Cookbook," put out by Ulysses Press.

From blacksmith dumplings and Kraken stew, to roasted royal turkey and honey cakes for a coin, there are so many delicious recipes to cook and bake up that are sure to delight die-hard fans of this series.  I really like the assortment of recipes included in this cookbook. And, you don't have to be an expert in the kitchen to make them either.  Recipes range from humble meals and tavern stews to bountiful feasts fit for a king.  Each recipe is inspired by food from the hit fantasy books, video games and TV show, The Witcher.

This past Thanksgiving I used the roasted royal turkey recipe in this book to cook up our bird and everyone complimented on how good the turkey tasted. It was juicy and full of flavor, and had everyone going back for seconds.  And, with the colder temps setting in here in the Northeast, I am cooking up stews, chili and soup to warm us up, so this cookbook is definitely coming in handy with fresh new takes on stews I usually cook up for my family.

When the next season of The Witcher releases to Netflix, I plan to have a few friends over to watch the first few episodes, as it will be a change not seeing Henry Cavill in the lead role. We will need some comfort foods to get us through viewing, so I will be using this cookbook to fill the dining table with a bountiful feast of food for everyone to enjoy.  If you are a die-hard of The Witcher, or know someone who is and that loves to cook and bake, I highly recommend you check out the "The Unofficial Witcher Cookbook." 

As you start flipping through the cookbook checking out the different recipes, you will find yourself flagging most (if not all) the recipes to try.  And, let me tell you...everything that I have made so far from this cookbook has been a hit with my family. 

I can't wait to get back in the kitchen this weekend and make a few more dishes from the cookbook to enjoy with my family, before settling in and watching some of my favorite episodes from the recent season of The Witcher on Netflix.
