What do you get for the cat owner who has everything? If you're looking for something creative and unique, this clever cook book by Sheri Lynch would make a nice addition to any cat lovers' kitchen. Cooking with Cats features recipes for humans (and a few for cats).
Sheri Lynch is an award-winning broadcaster, best known for being part of the Bob & Sheri radio show. She is a self-proclaimed “crazy cat lady” who also enjoys cooking. Why not put those two things together to create a fun and entertaining book that appeals to cooking enthusiasts and pet lovers alike?
With the holidays right around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to check out this book and see if it offered a good value for the price. When I'm shopping for pet owners, I think about all of the things that I use with our cats. I also think about the long list of kitty related products that I would like to have.
This gives me some good ideas, but all of the affordable items seem too impersonal. I mean, who wants to give grooming supplies or cat treats to someone as a gift? I always like to have a few unique gifts up my sleeve, and this book definitely falls into that category.
Cooking with Cats by Sheri Lynch Review
Cooking with Cats: Favorite Recipes of Crazy Cat People and Felines We Feast With, is Sheri's third book. The Bob & Sheri radio show airs on more than 65 radio stations across the United States and in 170 countries on the American Armed Forces Radio Network. The recipes in the book come from Sheri and listeners from all over the world.
Along with each recipe, you'll also be able to read a behind-the-recipe story and adorable pictures that were sent in from Bob & Sheri listeners. When asked about the book in an interview with RadioOnline.com, Sheri says:
“Real people, real recipes, real cats. I love to cook, I love cats, and I love my listeners. Bringing all three together for Cooking with Cats: Favorite Recipes of Crazy Cat People and the Felines We Feast With was so much fun. I'm super grateful for the special connection we have with our listeners. That's why I'm on social media so much… I love communicating and interacting with them, and it really adds so much more to the radio show – as it did for this cookbook. If cats wander your kitchen counters like they own the place, and you love good food that's easy enough to whip up while shooing away the kitties, and tasty enough to satisfy even the most cat-resistant eater, you're in the right place.”
Cooking with Cats is only available in paperback. It is currently selling on Amazon for $23.95. The colored photographs of silly cats in the kitchen and easy-to-follow recipes make this book a great value for the money. Plus, as I mentioned, it would make a perfect gift for any cat-lover on your list.
