The Redwall Cookbook

In my stories, the food has as much a part of the saga as the battle, the quest, the poems, the riddles, and the songs.  So enjoy…but…don’t try to be a gluttonous hare…”          Brian Jacques

After writing 17 books in the Redwall series, Brian Jacques wrote a cookbook, revealing the recipes behind the food mentioned in his stories of brave, battling mice:

  • Hare’s Pawspring Vegetable Soup
  • Spiced Gatehouse Tea Bread
  • Squirrelmum’s Blackberry and Apple Cake
  • Shrimp ‘N’ Hotroot Soup
  • Vegetable Molebake

and more…

The recipes are real, all referenced to the stories, and organized by seasons. The animals are cooking, so it’s all veggies and fruits – with some sweets.   Although I found The Redwall Cookbook in the children’s section of the library, it rivals some of the adult cookbooks I’ve skimmed.

I haven’t tried any of the recipes -yet, but Rosey’s Jolly Raspberry Jelly Rock Cakes look good to me.
