Final Fantasy XIV Is The Latest Game Getting Its Own Cookbook



Pop culture themed cookbooks are hugely popular at the moment. From Marvel, to Star Wars, Scooby Doo, Doctor Who and more, geeky cookbooks are all the rage and it isn’t hard to see why. Unless you have a fondness or an affinity for cooking, prepping and making a meal can sometimes seem like a chore. These kinds of fun cookbooks are a great way to learn how to cook in an engaging way (particularly if you are a terrible cook and also a huge nerd like me). Video games have cookbooks by the dozen based on all sorts of franchises, such as Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, Pokemon and Minecraft to name a few. Food is a hugely common element throughout video games- usually acting as a form of health or a power up – and so cookbooks based on games make a lot of sense as there are tons of unique food creations possible. The latest to get in on this is the Final Fantasy franchise, with Square Enix and Insight Editions teaming up to release The Ultimate Final Fantasy XIV Cookbook in November.

Final Fantasy is a franchise where food is a big part of character stats and the MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV is no different, with tons of both sweet and savoury options that can be made and consumed in game. I’m not quite sure if the cookbook is going to have the likes of the Snurbleberry Tart- I’m fresh out of Snurbleberries unfortunately-or the Shark Fin Soup (unless you are feeling particularly brave when it comes to gathering ingredients), but there are still going to be tons of options for real life recreations of in game foods such as La Noscea’s Rolanberry Cheesecake. The cookbook will be releasing on November 9th, 2021. Make sure to check out the press release below for more info as well as a sizzle video showcasing some of the recipes that will be in the book.
