Everyone knows that there are a few good cookbooks you need to basically have every recipe you need in life. The Joy of Cooking, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and a good cookbook from America’s Test Kitchen are great to have in the wheelhouse and should give you recipes for anything you can’t find on Pinterest. But for those of us who love the weird and wacky, there are a whole SLEW of cookbooks that are a MUST for foodies who love TV, movies, books, and music.
Compiled for your shopping and reading enjoyment, here are 27 fantastically weird and wacky cookbooks that you add to your upcoming birthday or holiday lists. I actually do own a good handful of these myself and they’re quite amazing. My famous chocolate chip cookie recipe comes from Aunt Bee’s Mayberry Cookbook, I have made a handful of drinks from the Mad Men Cookbook and I’ve tried making Pumpkin Pasties from the Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook (I also recently purchased Vincent Price’s cookbook, which is a full-color collection of some very unique and scrumptious recipes!). These are all real and all for sale on Amazon.com (they’re also all linked for easy shopping!).
