Forking Good: An Unofficial Cookbook for Fans of The Good Place

The day before I got this book, my husband offered to go to the store to get what I needed for a roast. I asked him to buy a specific type of potato. He returned with every potato that the store carried except the sort I wanted. What was I going to do with a bunch of potatoes? Especially purple potatoes? The first recipe in this book is for HUME FRIES (hah - get the pun?) It required purple potatoes - problem solved!

This sadly wasn't forking good. 

The moment that I saw The Good Place + cookbook, I was convinced I needed this. Sha turned me onto The Good Place earlier this year, and I binge read it all in a few short weeks. It's such a wonde

If you are a fan of The Good Place, this cookbook won't disappoint you. There's lots of quirky fun to be found in here, and some interesting recipes too. There aren't as many recipes as I expect to see in a cookbook, and many of these are the boozy kind, but this didn't hurt my impression at all. There's plenty of variety and, as I'd hoped, nothing is ordinary, while still being doable by an average home cook like me. I mean, that's ultimately what I look for in a cookbook. Oh, and photos of the ...more

Many thanks to Quirk books for the ARC. This review is voluntary and strictly my own.

This book is delicious both inside and out! I’m not one to read a cookbook cover to cover, generally I thumb through the pages, quickly breezing over the photos and recipes and truthfully, ignoring mostly all of the personal testaments. But this book is chalked full of awesomeness and I’ve found myself paying very little attention to the actual recipes and more so to th

This is a cute and clever cook book!

Unfortunately every recipe doesn't have a photo, but the recipes are named after Good Place lines or characters. There's also quotes from each show, a little fake back and forth dialogue between characters, and bits of philosophy. The philosophy takes for each recipe give moral lessons, which tie back to what the characters learn in the show.

Overall the recipes are pretty straightforward.

This book was inspired by the philosophy and food humor from the show "The Good Place." It contains thirty recipes for the adventurous cook to try. My favorite is Dante's nine layers of torture bars. Be sure to share. Lots of colorful illustrations are included in the book and lots of philosophy to be learned and enjoyed. I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

I won this cookbook in a Goodreads Giveway. I've never seen the show, but the stories inside the book are funny to very quirky. Many of the recipes I would like to try out. When it comes to cookbooks, I'm not much on words, so...

This cookbook was not what I expected. I have never seen the show but the amount of research and effort that went into the philosophies and the reasoning behind the recipe choices was refreshing. I'm looking forward to trying some of these recipes.
This book was won as part of a Goodreads Giveaway.

If you like the show, you’ll like the cookbook. I can’t see myself making anything but it’s a fun read.
