Description:

No unicorns were harmed in the making of this food! But unicorns have magically inspired all the recipes in this book adding technicolor sparkle to your sushi and fairy tale magic to your mocktails. Why eat boring when you can enjoy a rainbow-coloured noodle bowl for dinner? And it’s all deliciously natural – no nasty e-numbers or preservatives, just beautiful food colourings made from berry juices and vegetables. From the show-stopping Unicorn Cake and Cosmic Donuts to Rainbow Veggie Sandwiches and Celestial Swirl Soup, these brightly coloured edibles can be naughty and nice. Create the most unbelievably Instagrammable dishes ever seen. Cook, post and enjoy and the likes will multiple. Move over mug cakes. This is internet explosion unites the zeitgeist for all things magical, pastel, and unicorn-esque. Brightly coloured, and not too serious, Unicorn Food is shared experience – how could you not want to share such amazing and magical delights created in your own kitchen – and all natural and vegetarian.

 

My View:

This must be the most colourful and spectacularly designed recipe book I have come across – the photography is amazing, (the writer is also a photographer and food stylist – that is evident on each and every page). You will find yourself racing to the kitchen to prepare some of these wonderful, healthy  treats–“no artificial food colourings are used in this book; they are all plant based.” P4

The colourful, joyous creations will put a smile on anyone’s face. If your best friend needs to be cheered up – a plate of Unicorn macarons will do the trick, need a unique gift for that arty friend? Unicorn white chocolate bars look divine and are easy to create in the home kitchen. (p.50)  And there are so many choices for party/birthday treats you want know where to begin. But don’t stop there – there are recipes to add sparkle and glitz to breakfasts (Mermaid toast, Rainbow smoothies, Blue latte, Starlight smoothie bowl ), lunch (Unicorn dips, Rainbow veggie sandwiches…) and dinner – Unicorn rice paper rolls, maki rolls, veggie noodle bowls….YUM I want to eat it all !
