This book’s excellent. It’s by the same people who did Art & Arcana, and has a similar high quality production value applied. The recipes are themed based on race and location – so you’ll get human recipes from a specific tavern, Dwarven recipes, etc. There are meat and vegetarian options, and even a section for drinks including cocktails. The authors know their audience; this book is aimed squarely at roleplayers familiar with D&D (and probably Pathfinder, too). You’ll enjoy this book if you like adding a little bit of character flavour to dinner nights, and bringing a themed recipe to a dice-rolling session sure beats eating a bag of chips. Where I think the authors excelled was making the recipes accessible – they know that RPGers aren’t always going to be good chefs, so the methods laid out by the chef contributor are super simple to follow and suitable for both beginner and intermediate chefs. Advanced chefs will be able to tune these recipes without breaking a sweat, making it good for all levels of cook. The book starts with the implements of war you’ll need, and these are similarly basic; I reckon these may be similar to the equipment a dungeon adventurer would lash to their pack. You won’t find the need for specialised tools, and the ingredients are for the most part things you’d find at your local supermarket (only exception I’ve found is when they call for [optional to add colour] saffron). Dropping to four stars because this book hasn’t been adapted for metric measurements for non-US audiences. You’ll need to keep Siri/Alexa/Google Assistant on hand to convert F to C, lbs to grams, etc., and be familiar with what Kosher salt is (pro tip: this is salt with a larger grain size and doesn’t taste as salty as standard table salt – be aware). I think this book is just a pretty good cookbook all around, and the theming is something that made reading through it – even without making all the recipes yet – a lot of fun. If you’re a huge geek like me you’ll love it, and this would make a good coffee table book or present for that gamer in you’re life if you’re not into D&D. Worth your time.
