Dungeons & Dragons and Critical Role Release New… Cookbooks?

The worlds of Dungeons & Dragons are filled with unique settings and worlds, from the Forgotten Realms to Eberron to Critical Role’s world of Exandria. So it only stands to reason that each world has its own culinary stylings and specialties.

Penguin Random House teamed up with Dungeons & Dragons in 2020 to release “Heroes’ Feast: The Official D&D Cookbook.” Now they’re doing it again with two cookbooks: “Flavors of the Multiverse” and “Exquisite Exandria.”

Flavors of the Multiverse

D&D Heroes’ Feast: Flavors of the Multiverse” is a sequel cookbook to the first “Heroes’ Feast,” featuring new recipes from the original authors. This book goes beyond the Forgotten Realms and into D&D’s multiverse, featuring 75 recipes from across the planes for appetizers, main courses, desserts, and drinks.

“Never adventure on an empty stomach! From the D&D experts behind the bestselling Heroes’ Feast comes Heroes’ Feast Flavors of the Multiverse, a mouthwatering cookbook stuffed with eclectic fare for solo adventurers and party quests alike. This culinary tour presents original recipes inspired by regions and settings from across the Forgotten Realms and beyond. All seventy-six dishes, developed by a professional chef from one of the country’s top test kitchens, are delicious, easy to prepare, and composed of ingredients readily found in our world.

The immersive recipes in Heroes’ Feast Flavors of the Multiverse are perfect for sharing and entertaining. Dishes are organized by location with options for every occasion—especially game nights!—including

• otherworldly appetizers such as Talyth and Goldenstars
• savory main courses such as Steak of the Deep and Eldeen Banquet
• alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages such as Elverquist and Kaeth
• and desserts such as Green Ice Rime and Vada’s Vanilla Bean Buns

Adventure has never tasted so good!”

“Flavors of the Multiverse” will retail for $35.00 and will be available November 7, 2023.

Exquisite Exandria

Fans of Critical Role might have a hard time finding recipes from Exandria in “Flavors of the Multiverse,” because they’re all being compiled into a separate cookbook: “Exquisite Exandria: The Official Cookbook of Critical Role.” This features recipes inspired by the different locales across Exandria, including meals inspired by specific characters from across Critical Role’s three campaigns.

Featuring sixty delicious recipes from across the world of Critical Role, every Critter will find something to whet their appetites in this official cookbook.
Join a party of culinary adventurers in search of the fabulous flavors and delightful delicacies that make Exandria so exquisite. Here, they present their bounty: sixty dishes collected from each continent! 
Start in Tal’Dorei, where you can nab a trio of pastries from the Slayer’s Cake, a staple of Whitestone’s patisserie scene. Journey next to the birthplace of civilization, Issylra, and devour some absolutely divine Highsummer Honey Polenta. Travel to Marquet and explore Jrusar’s Core Spire while enjoying some street meat. And finally, end in Wildemount, where you can unwind with a famous Ruby of the Sea Cocktail.
The recipes from these diverse dives are accompanied by the histories of each land—and stories of iconic culinary capers by Vox Machina, the Mighty Nein, Bells Hells, and more. Enjoy Percival de Rolo’s Revenge Pasta, stuffed with enough garlic to ward off even the strongest vampires, and blackberry and lemon hand pies inspired by Scanlan’s favorite spell. Prepare for battle with Jester’s Sweet Feast, a platter of pastries made complete with a dash of cinnamon and a covert sprinkle of the Dust of Deliciousness. And as the night comes to a close, settle down with Lord Eshteross’s Maple Ginger Cookies.
With a foreword by Quyen Tran and Sam Riegel, gorgeous illustrations and photography to accompany mouthwatering recipes, and lore from each corner of Exandria, this is a must-have cookbook for every Critical Role fan.”

“Exquisite Exandria” will retail for $29.99 and will be available August 29, 2023.
