“And at every turn, following an enthusiastic “Let’s get cooking!” Rutabaga whips up something tasty. A couple of recipes end the volume, but even Rutabaga’s culinary feats in the comic—bare-bones instructions are included in the panels—could easily inspire young adventure chefs to make some gourmet grub of their own.”
— Booklist on Rutabaga The Adventure Chef
In a world where there are dragons, wyverns, and haunted squash, you’d figure someone would have recipes for them, right?
Rutabaga and his magic cooking pot, Pot, join young adventurers Winnifred, Manny, and Beef on a quest to defeat a dragon, discover new ingredients, find monsters to have for and/or to dinner, and to save the day through cooking. Rutabaga will dare any danger to uncover new tastes, and there’s a whole world full of food to try—from roasted mud leech to spider soup to peanut butter on crackers. His heroic recipes combine real ingredients, fantasy ingredients, and real ingredients that sound fantastical. Rutabaga the Adventure Chef is the perfect adventure for any kid grossed out when something weird shows up on the dinner table.
