CD Projekt RED, developers of the critically acclaimed The Witcher series, have made an exciting announcement for fans that love to get experimental in the kitchen! The series, which most recent entry is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, will be receiving an official cookbook.
Take a culinary journey through the fantastical world of The Witcher with thoughtfully imagined, flavorful recipes inspired by The Witcher‘s expansive settings, characters, and lore. In this beautifully photographed cookbook, Anita Sarna and Karolina Krupecka, the creators of fan-favorite food blogs Nerds’ Kitchen and Witcher Kitchen, share their meticulously-researched, immersive recipes that give fans a taste of the distinct flavors a witcher might sample as he travels the countryside in search of monsters to slay and coin to earn.CD Projekt Red via Penguin Random House
The dishes included in the book use local and seasonal ingredients, whilst adding unique twists in an effort to convey a culinary map of the Continent. Those who purchase the book can expect to find a wide variety of recipes inside including stews, baked fruit and even mulled drinks. Every recipe takes inspiration from locations within The Witcher universe, for example, fish dishes from the port city of Novigrad and snacks from the market of Oxenfurt.
