We're pretty picky about the items we stock in our store. But when we saw this we realized instantly it was the kind of product we liked and that you would like. It's not the first Lovecraftian cookbook in the world, but it's the first to succeed at the strange goal of filling a Lovecraftian tome of elder lore with some fun and funny recipes that would be fun to eat. 

There's sections for Cocktails, Soups, Salads, Entrees and Desserts, featuring toothsome gems like the Gin & Miskatonic, Atlach-Nachos, The Sandwich Horror, Elder Thing Parmagiana, Yogsicles and many, many more. Best of all though, while carrying the momentum of a wild barrage of Lovecraftian food puns, the recipes are all written out in a bizarre but executable style and many of them sound darned tasty.

The new 2nd edition of The Necronomnomnom is hardbound, handsomely finished with gold and copper inks on the cover. The inside has the look of an ancient grimoire with stained backgrounds and teems with marvelous illustrations by the very talented Kurt Komoda. The recipes themselves are built on well-considered Lovecraftian puns, but they are written out by Mike Slater with a kind of manic care that the HPLHS deeply appreciates. The new edition is a tad smaller than the first edition and it's also substantially less expensive. 2nd Edition, hardbound, 8.5"x10.3", 200 pages, containing about 50 recipes.

A perfect companion to your Necronomicon

Are you having friends over for a little sacrifice and raising the “Old Ones” from their eternal slumber? At a loss as to what to serve at the End of Times?
The Necronomnomnom is the answer to your deepest fears and gastronomic pleasures.
Had Gordon Ramsay opened the book that should not be opened maybe he could have presented better taste offerings, But thanks to Mike Slater you can throw caution and your sanity to the wind and be the talk of the town or village with recipes from drinks like the Gin and Miskatonic. Main dishes of Formless Spawnhetti or Shogghoulash. Even a “Children’s Menu” Food to serve them to eat not made from children. After all no need to risk entanglement with the authorities when your end is so near.
Finish the night off in style with “The Cake in Yellow.
This is not just a collection of witty puns to dress up a mundane collection of Betty Crocker knockoffs. Each is offered with amazing artwork to get your tastebuds singing and your mind slipping. It deserves a place in any kitchen tucked prominently between your copy of Grays Anatomy and To Serve Man above the icebox.

A great surprise for visiting friends in the autumnal season. The book itself is meticulously illustrated with wonderful recipes and ideas. A culinary and imaginative joy. Great fun for reader and cook alike, and no doubt for the palate as well. Bon appetit!
