Minecraft: Gather, Cook, Eat! Official Cookbook

Insight Editions. Apr. 2023. 128p. Tr $27.99. ISBN 9781647228262.
Gr 9 Up–This title is designed for a Minecraft-playing audience, with recipes categorized by player type that inspired the recipe, e.g., Builder, Explorer, Inventor, etc. Many recipes are accessible, as they are gluten and/or dairy free, vegan, or vegetarian. Recipes are pictured with tempting food photography or Minecraft graphics. A basic tool list as well as kitchen survival tips, tricks, and key terms for recipes are included. Each recipe has a key indicating difficulty level, cooking time, player type, dietary notes, prep time, yield, and whether special kitchen tools are needed. While the recipes have Minecraft-related names like “Dragon’s Breath,” not all recipes are anything new, but are simply renamed. Nor are all the recipes designed to be cooked with supplies on hand, calling for items such as portobellos sized for steaks and truffle salt. With recipes such as “Survive the Night” soda pop with a shot of espresso, this is a title for older readers. For anyone looking to plan an Explorer’s Picnic, Nurturer’s Lunch Break, Builder’s Brunch, Fighter’s Feast, or Inventor’s Brainstorm the plans are available.
VERDICT A catchy title and guaranteed audience, but the checkout versus recipes cooked may be disparate. Not recommended.
