I strive to dig into each of these universes to bring out the recipes of your favorite heroes or heroines or those of the dishes they could have tasted. My work consists of creating a recipe as well as reproducing decorations, placing easter eggs in the accessories or in the ingredients. With each recipe, my objective is simple: to extend the reader’s immersion in a world he knows well through a gourmet dish. – Thibaud Villanova
Cooking in Ghibli in 35 recipes
These are the editions Hachette Heroes who publish this richly illustrated work, entitled The Kitchen in Ghibli: recipes from the legendary studio. The photos are signed Nicolas Lobbestael and the book includes no less than 35 Recipes Inspired by Studio Ghibli’s Greatest Masterpieces. For example, there is everything you need to know to recreate the fish-pumpkin pie of Kiki’s Delivery Servicethe hambagu of pompokoor even the accursed banquet of Spirited Away. These photos also reveal the Calcifer Breakfast of the Howl’s Moving Castlewith its fried eggs and grilled breast, all rendered with absolute fidelity to the original work.
Because if the films of the Ghibli studio mark the spirits above all for the themes they address and their subject relating to childhood, nature or the family, scenes related to meals are often the ones we remember the most. This book thus tries to restore the magic and the oneirism of these great animated films by combining the useful with the pleasant.
The physical version of the book is available for $24.95 at Hachette Heroes but you can also opt for the eBook format for $16.99.
