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.
