Cook Fiction Brings the World Meals from Literature

Books are full of interesting places, amazing characters, and occasionally the most memorable—and fictional—meals. The Cook Fiction website has monopolized on that fact, bringing users a host of recipes straight out of literature, reports GalleyCat.

The site allows visitors to search by type of dish or category, and brings you “real recipes for imaginary foods” from outlets like books, movies, anime, television, and video games. Want to try butter beer from the world of Harry Potter? Or perhaps lembas bread from The Lord of the Rings is more your style. The list of recipes even includes dandelion salad from The Hunger Games.

“I believe that storytelling and honest, homemade food have the power to create strong social bonds,” said site creator Cheri. “My goal is to bring people of all walks of life together to the same table … to eat good food, stretch their imaginations, and have fun.”

All recipes on the site are inspired by fiction, and users can suggest a meal if what they’re looking for isn’t already posted. There is also a random recipe generator if you’re in the mood for a surprise.
