Additional Notes

From The Publisher*80 recipes inspired by the magical world of Dungeons & Dragons--perfect for a solo quest or a feast shared with fellow adventurers.

From the D&D experts behind Dungeons & Dragons Art & Arcana comes a cookbook that invites fantasy lovers to learn about their favorite fictional cultures through their unique cuisines and lifestyles. With this book, you can prepare dishes delicate enough to dine like elves and their drow cousins or hearty enough to feast like a dwarven clan or a boisterous orcish horde. All eighty dishes--developed by a professional chef from one of the country's top test kitchens--are delicious, easy to prepare, and composed of wholesome ingredients readily found in our world.

Heroes' Feast includes recipes for snacking, such as Bytopian Shepherd's Bread, Iron Rations, savory Hand Pies, and Hogs in Bedrolls, as well as hearty vegetarian, meaty, and fish mains, such as Amphail Braised Beef, Hommlet Golden Brown Roasted Turkey, Drow Mushroom Steaks, and Moonshae Seafood Risotto. There are also featured desserts and cocktails--like Heartlands Roseapple & Blackberry Pie, Yawning Portal Biscuit, and Chultan Zombie--and everything in between, to satisfy a craving for any adventure.

If you don't cook, get this book and give it to someone who will cook for you."-Freddie Prinze Jr.

Try the Halfling Chili. . ."-Joe Manganiello, actor, producer, author, and D&D collaborator
