40 Examples of Curious Cookbooks

From Potato Chip Cookbooks to Fashionable Foodie Bibles

— April 21, 2015 — Lifestyle
The art of cuisine has become rife with experimental recipes and ingredients, so it's only natural that a range of curious cookbooks have been released over the years. Whether focusing on current food fads such as Sriracha sauce and paleo diets or unique perspectives including through fashion gurus or thug-appreciating individuals, these curious cookbooks are as entertaining as they are enlightening.

This collection of curious cookbooks also point to a different state of mind when it comes to consumers. While books themselves are slowly going extinct, people are more than willing to fill shelves with conversation starters. What can be more intriguing than a cookbook involving condoms and insects or one inspired by pop culture?
