Staff Reviews

If this book has caught your attention — FLIP THROUGH IT. You will not be disappointed by this amazing cookbook. The illustrations are legit, and the Lovecraft theme is woven into the recipes as well. Don’t worry, though, you can still decipher the recipes, and you better believe I’m serving Shogghoulash at my next dinner party, washed down with a Gin and Miskatonic. I haven’t been so delighted by a book in a long time.

— Julia Atwood


A Lovecraft-inspired cookbook with recipes to whet your appetite and threaten your sanity

Reading about the slime- covered, non- Euclidean ruins of the sunken city of R’lyeh or the squamous, tentacled deity who slumbers there would make anyone hungry. Starting with the puns and working from there, authors Mike Slater and Thomas Roache have summoned forth 50 funny, bizarre, and horrible dishes such as:

• The Deep Fried Deep One

• Nog Sothoth

• Cthus-Koos

• The Great Old Buns

• The Gin and Miskatonic

Like H. P. Lovecraft’s Necronomicon, the legendary and forbidden book of the dead that is “alien to all sane and balanced readers,” this cookbook contains many dark (but still delicious) secrets within its pages. The book comes infested with sanity- melting and mouth- watering illustrations, as well as annotations full of crazed discoveries and desperate warnings about the recipes that brave readers will undertake.
