Wonder Woman: The Official Cookbook by Briana Volk seems like a natural for the amazing Amazon. One would deduce that her diet would have to be a healthy one considering the longevity of the inhabitants of Paradise Island.
The good folks of Insight Editions graciously sent me two celebrity television show cookbooks to review. I agreed to review the books because I am a fan of both Friends and The Office. If you watched all episodes of both shows, you will appreciate the recipes in each book. I coupled both books in one review. The longevity of both shows has a wealth of food-related stories, this places well into the authors’ hands for source material. Both books capture the true essence of the pop culture riddled shows with references about food. Netflix and Peacock streaming services both increased the popularity of Friends and The Office to newer audiences. These two books are not only for fans but also for serious foodies who want something a little bit more special. There are plenty of fun facts in both books. You will have a new appreciation for the shows.

Cheap Thrills Cuisine is touted as “the world’s first culinary comic strip”. Not every newspaper carries the strip created by Bill Lombardo and Tak Bui. The low profile strip has been chugging along for many years without any fanfare. Cheap Thrills Cuisine was published in book form way back in 1995 collecting several strips of the time. The niche comic strip is still going strong without abate. The strip is distributed by Andrews McMeel Universal and hosted on GoComics every Wednesday. Chef Peppi delights the audience as the proportionally challenged curator backdrop chef who recreates Bill Lombardo’s recipes as illustrated by Tak Bui.

Polish people love their Beaver Tails. However, they are not the pastry version found at Rideau Canal in Ottawa, Canada. They are actually from the living animal. 300 years ago, beavers were considered to be part of the fish world by Polish people. Compendium ferculorum, albo Zebranie potraw (A Collection of Dishes) is a cookbook by Stanisław Czerniecki written in 1682 with the recipe for the Polish dish. Lucky for the beaver, it has become somewhat of an endangered species in Poland. Can I please get some Nutella and sugar on my tail, please! Like the dodo bird, this recipe has fallen by the wayside.
