The Overwatch Cookbook Actually Exists
It is even filled with favorites of the game's very own heroes. simonandschuster.com

Believe it or not, an Overwatch cookbook actually exists and it is all thanks to Chelsea Monroe-Cassel, the author of a handful of cookbooks. Think of it as your go-to guide for all delicacies you can find in the game.

Monroe-Cassel is known for a variety of cookbooks for Game of Thrones, Firefly, The Elder Scrolls, and World of Warcraft. The Overwatch cookbook is, as already mentioned, the first official guide to cooking the delicacies of the first-person shooter title. It is where you can find such delicacies as Pharah’s favorite Canadian Butter Tarts and Mercy’s first love: the elderberry liquor toddy.

Saying that Monroe-Cassel has a very outstanding career is clearly an understatement. After all, she is best known for creating real-word recipes that are completely based on films and video games. Of course, apart from writing, she also loves to cook and eat. According to her official Twitter page, she loves to do all of these while “there are small ducks within easy reach.”

As for the newly-released Overwatch cookbook, she steered away from simply staring at dozens of heroes while trying to figure out what their favorite food would taste like. She instead drew inspiration directly from the countries of origins of these heroes.

Interestingly, each of the recipes found in the book comes with a short backstory explaining why she included it. Take for example Pharah’s butter tarts. According to the description, it was the hero’s favorite treat as a child. It reminds her of a happy memory of what seemed to be a complicated childhood. Orisa’s Sundae, on the other hand, is said to be a lovely construction of banana, chocolate ice cream, caramel sauce, and kiwi. The recipe was given to robotics genius Efi Oladele upon creation of her robotic partner.

Keep in mind, though, that this is an official Overwatch cookbook and Blizzard actually gave her the license to create it. It is not a speculative cookbook, so to speak. In other words, all the descriptions Monroe-Cassel wrote there are true and based on the game’s lore.
