This Minecraft-inspired cookbook is perfect for young chefs with adult supervision. In three sections—savory meals, sweet treats, and beverages—recipes put a fun spin on the game and include dishes like Poisoned Potatoes, Creeper Milkshakes, and a dessert known as Nether Warts, which includes chocolate and looks delicious, despite the name. Recipes are easy to follow and include a list of ingredients and necessary kitchen tools, with no specialty cookware required. All recipes have a picture of the finished product, and each description includes a nod to the game, which builders will appreciate. Many of the recipes use ingredients that Minecraft fans will recognize from the game, like mushrooms, beets, and rabbit meat (which can be substituted with chicken). Serving block-shaped food could be a fun way to get a reluctant eater interested in meals, and the book is filled with ideas for a Minecraft-themed birthday party or snacks for a library program. VERDICT This could be the cookbook to inspire young gamers to put down the controller and head into the kitchen; libraries will want to have it on hand for aspiring chefs.
