Destiny’s got an official cookbook now, so now you know what to get the fam for Christmas

Why not turn your looter shooter into a fancy feast? Because nothing about gaming has to make sense any more, Bungie collaborated with Victoria Rosenthral to make Destiny: The Official Cookbook. Coming this August, the cookbook contains a bunch of make-them-yourself recipes that somehow tie into the Destiny universe.

According to the description, “Eva Levante has traveled around the world after the events of the Red War, gathering a variety of recipes after crossing paths with many Guardians along the way and learning from their adventures. Craft, mouthwatering food from her diverse list of recipes inspired by the game’s unique world, plus step-by-step instructions and full-color photos, help guide and inspire fans to go on their own culinary adventure through the solar system.”

Official cookbooks for popular games isn’t anything new, of course. World of Warcraft has one, as does Elder Scrolls Online. Oh yeah, and there’s a Fallout cookbook, an Overwatch cookbook, and a Hearthstone cookbook as well. Has any of our readers ever purchased and used these? If so, did you survive the experience?

I’ve had a lot of fun cooking the recipes from the World of Warcraft Cookbook. It was written around in-game cooking as it existed in Pandaria, so it had chapters like “The Way of the Entree”. A few recipes really stood out: the buzzard bites were really good, as was the Mulgore spice bread (which makes an amazing french toast or bread pudding). Other things like boiled clams were, well, just boiled clams. The Ironforge rations really were made with haggis! Just trying the meals out to see what they would taste like brought me out of my cooking comfort zone. YMMV.

It’s the same two or three recipes over and over again, with different food coloring.

Every recipe is like:

“What’s your favorite ingredient? Okay, add that no fewer than one hundred times while stirring constantly.”

“Of course it’s good. Trust us. It has your favorite ingredient!

“Admittedly, it doesn’t look appetizing. But if you give us another $20, we’ll send you a box of food coloring.”

We have the World of Warcraft cookbook.
Its actually an excellent cookbook, with only a couple of joke recipes. All of them are attempts to take the in-game ingredients and make a tasty, delicious dish with them. So if you’ve cooked some of these in-game, the recipes are actually familiar.

One of my personal favorites is honey-spiced lichen (honey-roasted kale leaves with cayenne pepper).

My wife always makes me a meal out of recipes from the cookbook during Blizzcon so I can watch the Opening Ceremony in style.
