Wonder Woman Vegetarian Cookbook Featuring Steve Trevor Egg Salad? LOL!

$19.99 USD for 136 page hardcover book isn’t terrible, but doesn’t the universe offer more?

Wonder Woman 1984 will be released on Christmas in both theaters and on HBO Max. If you want to throw a vegetarian food party, here’s something that might provide some inspiration.

Recently, we talked about an drink recipe book based on Star Trek that only had a few dozen recipes (see: Enjoy Trying New Themed Drinks? Maybe Star Trek Cocktails Has a Tasty Recipe).

Now we’re looking at a Wonder Woman themed vegetarian cookbook, dubbed The Official Wonder Woman Cookbook and it seems to share the same issue. Dig the creativity, but again not enough recipes.

…the overall cuisine is a perfect fit for Wonder Woman, and there’s some fun wordplay to be found: Hero’s Journey Hash and Fighting-Fit Feta Toast made me smile, Peaks of Paradise Biscuits and Mango Lassi of Truth are pretty clever, the Dip of Strength and Power made me laugh (in a good way), and of course Etta Candy gets her own Candy Cookies.  It would have been a shame had she not. Then there are some dishes like Steve Trevor Egg Salad and Feed the League Nachos that seem like they were included because someone thought “well, we have to mention Steve somewhere.”

Wonder Woman: The Official Cookbook review | Batman News

Wonder Woman comics have spanned decades. Who gets these great IPs and says, let’s make a cookbook with only a few dozen recipes? I get that print is expensive, but here’s an idea: offer a free digital code when the book is purchased to expand the number of printed recipes by hundreds more. And make a digital version without the print book for a lower price or including the print version — for those who like these printed books in their kitchens.

I’m a fan of the printed book and realize paper increases costs, but in 2020 a recipe book with 50 or so recipes for $19.99 USD? Especially one with a license like Wonder Woman? I think in this day and age, especially with a vast IP of possibilities we could sit around come up with hundreds of Wonder Woman themed recipes. You don’t even have to be that creative to slap a Wonder Woman name on some kind of vegetarian food dish.

Wonder Woman The Official Cookbook is available at various booksellers.

FIRST LOOK: Cooked With Cannabis (TV Series) – Netflix

With 4/20 just around the corner — and this post made precisely at 4:20 PM PST — comes another marijuana-themed cooking show to Netflix. They previously offered Cooking On The High which received many negative reviews (we never watched it).

Will the second cannabis-themed cooking show be better received?

Leading the culinary series as hosts and judges are “Milkshake” singer and chef Kelis, and Portland’s chef and weed expert Leather Storrs, who’s been likened to the “Anthony Bourdain of cannabis.” 

‘Cooked With Cannabis’ Host — Plus, Where Is the Cooking Show Filmed?

Cooking shows are pretty low on my watchlist of interest, however, this one has a curious twist to it. Will admit enjoying Chef Ramsey on Hell’s Kitchen, that’s probably the closest to a cooking show that I’ve gotten into. This one? Hmm, let’s dive into the trailer.

A number of states have legalized marijuana for recreational purposes and yet many employers still consider it an illegal drug. Regardless the legality, will simply watching as entertainment be … entertaining?

Probably not in my wheelhouse — would rate my anticipation as 1/10 — but these are very different times, so I’d probably give the first episode a chance. There are six episodes coming for the first season.

What do you think, will you be watching?

Cooked with Cannabis will be available for streaming on Netflix on 4/20/2020.
