My Thoughts

So I couldn't help myself when I saw that World of Warcraft was making a cookbook. I bought it and well it looks pretty and plenty of the recipes are recognisable from the book. however some have had their name changed due to the ingrediens and this made me a bit upset. If it is a WoW cookbook, keep it a WoW cookbook and dont make stuff up on the way. Why? We who buy it know this stuff from the game.

So is this a good cookbook? well if you like "normal" recipes that are made into looking and sounding like WoW then yes. some recipes where awesome and others where just strange. If you are new to cooking, dont bother. This book is not for you.

So why do I only give it 2 start (well I am 2 ,5 start actually)?
1, The recipes are for Americans, which means it is measured in cups and all temperatures in F. I can understand the cup things but it wouldn't be too much troubles speaking to the whole world by also adding C in temperatures.

2. INGREDIENS. Once again, Americans. I live in Europe, and I cant get my hands on a lot of the stuff that is supposed to be used, some I have never heard off and I love cooking. I can get my hand on some things but then I wouldn't have any money for bills that month. So if you live outside of US/Canada, you will find that you will have a hard time finding what you need. Most of the time I did use other things so I have no idea how the original would taste.

3. Measurements are not correct. I learned this pretty quickly, and thank good I am used to think while cooking because the measurements are way off in this one. Sometimes to much and sometimes to little.

I love World of Warcraft even if cooking is boring there. I love cooking IRL but I cant see myself using this book that much because there is nothing new and it has more flaws than I hoped. Maybe Nomi would burn slightly less food if he had access to this book. To bad I cant send him mine.
