posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The Japanese publisher Shueisha is offering a new cookbook inspired by Eiichiro Oda's One Piece pirate manga. The One Piece Pirate Recipes: Umi no Ichiryū Ryōrinin: Sanji no Manpuku Gohan (One Piece Pirate Recipes: First-Class Cook of the Seas Sanji's Filling Meals) cookbook will go on sale on November 28 for 1,470 yen (US$18.50).
Food stylist Nami Iijima, author of Reel Cuisine: Blockbuster Dishes from the Silver Screen, designed the 41 recipes featured in the book. Iijima presents the recipes in a way that is easy to understand and using ingredients that are readily available. All the recipes are inspired after foods the character Sanji has cooked.
Recipes featured in the book include Luffy's Favorite Bone-in Meat Dish, Sky Fish Sauté, Crossing Through the Desert Pirate Bento, Potato Paille, Apology Fruit Macedonia, and Fried Rice Put Out for Gin.
The book will also bundle a silicon mat that features an image of Sanji holding a wine glass, which can be used as a bottle opener or a pot holder. The book will also feature information about Oda's workstation and a menu of what he and his assistants eat at the Oda household. The book will also describe Oda's eating habits.
