Some of the recipes are very literal interpretations of foods in the books. For example, The Beyonders, by Brandon Mull, features a Lumba Berry Pie, described as “a delicacy so addicting that the diner will never want to eat anything else ever again”. As Lumba Berries are fictional, they’ve been replaced here by boysenberries, and they look fantastic.
Other recipes are more of the “inspired by” variety, such as the Chocolate Violet Creams associated with Sarah Eden’s Courting Miss Lancaster. (The main character loves violets, and this recipe uses edible flowers.)
One of my particular favorite associations was the Caramel Crack (a kind of brittle) inspired by Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me. I also got a kick out of the Wind-Whirled Ice Cream Cake, based on Leigh Fallon’s Carrier of the Mark (the main character in that book can control the wind, and the recipe requires a lot of whipping).
Anyway, the book is a lot of fun to browse, and all the food looks delicious (the photography is great). Best of all, it’s available right now for only $0.99 on Amazon. Go, buy, and eat.
