I’ve written about books for Halloween treats for the last five years and, to be fair, there aren’t many new books each year. So this time I’ve decided to choose my five favourite cookbooks from the last five years, which have treats galore.
The Spooky 3D Cookbook – from 2014’s choices, I had to include this one as I think it’s the only time I’ve featured a 3D cookbook on the blog. That’s surely an unusual gift of a cookbook for any food lover.
The Martini Diva’s Halloween Martinis and Munchies Book – purely for the title alone! And who says that Halloween is just for the kids?
Ghoulish Goodies – this has been in my house since 2009, and brought out every year by MGG. We’ve made lots of things from it, and I reckon there’ll be a few more recipes tried this year too.
Wormy Apple Croissants and Other Halloween Recipes – I think this book title has the right kind of yuck element to it that will make the kids want to check it out. And if that gets them into the kitchen that’s got to be a good thing.
Halloween Treats – I love Annie Rigg’s books, and always liked the look of this one. Still best for a cute approach to Halloween, rather than a blood and guts version. Which is fine by me!
It’s an event for a bit of fun on the cooking and baking front. I’ll see more black and orange colouring in the kitchen that weekend than the rest of the year put together, but I love it.
