Reminded me of the delightful [b:Nanny Ogg's Cookbook: A Useful and Improving Almanack of Information Including Astonishing Recipes from Terry Pratchett's Discworld|34509|Nanny Ogg's Cookbook A Useful and Improving Almanack of Information Including Astonishing Recipes from Terry Pratchett's Discworld|Terry Pratchett|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1438171527s/34509.jpg|592520] but since each recipe was a different author, you got a range of humor and style.
