A Recommended Read in the IHIBRP 2018

"This is an eminently giftworthy item for fantasy-loving cooks." ---Mythprint

"This book is clearly a labor of love... Even though many of the recipes call for butter and cream (and bacon and mushrooms!), we found most of them to be surprisingly light... I would recommend Cooking for Halflings & Monsters for the serious cook who wants to try something fresh and slightly different." ---Beyond Bree

"The research and testing that went into putting together each of the delectable dishes in Winegar's grand opus was obviously an enormous undertaking for the author who personally created, tested, captioned, and illustrated each one of her 111 recipes--including recipe substitutions and variations for those with specific dietary needs, not to mention those of us who are of the vegetarian persuasion. Each of the eight chapters featured in Winegar's book is complete with an introduction to the lifestyle of whatever fantasy creature may find a certain dietary menu appealing--a hobbit, elf, or wizard, and is geared toward a specific venue set one might frequent in their particular fantasy world--a café, inn, or pub. Fortunately for us mere mortals, these homey, comfort-food recipes also happen to be tailor-made for everyday people in our own world who enjoy everything from pub-style grub to more elegant fare." ---JB Richards, author of the Yeshua and Miri Novel Series
