After years of playing second fiddle, Final Fantasy XIV seems poised to finally take the crown from World of Warcraft as the premiere MMORPG. Discussing the many reasons behind WoW’s fall from grace will leave a bad taste in our mouths, so let’s talk about something that could put great food in our bellies instead. The Ultimate Final Fantasy XIV Cookbook features over 70 recipes for dishes and drinks from FF XIV, waiting for real-world Culinarians to craft them in real life.
The hardcover book was created by Victoria Rosenthal, whom you may know from her geeky cooking blog Pixelated Provisions. You can read more about how she wrote this book – including creating characters in FF XIV for the book’s narrators – in one of her posts. Naturally, she has Square Enix’s blessing, complete with a foreword from the game’s beloved director, Naoki “Yoshi-P” Yoshida.
