EarthBound-themed Cookbook Hits Homerun on Kickstarter

Do we dare say it’s… out of this world?

Earthbound Cook Book

Do you consider to be yourself to be a fan of both EarthBound and delicious food? If so, you’re in luck — it seems as though the two have finally come together in Mother’s Cookbook.

Originally reported by DestructoidMother’s Cookbook began as a Kickstarter project led by New York chef and EarthBound aficionado Bryan Connor who, after some thought, decided to combine his two passions into a single entity. Connor initially set out to raise $10,000 for his cookbook, but seemed to have underestimated the number of EarthBound fans out there and has since far surpassed his initial goal. As of now, Mother’s Cookbook stands at just over $32,000, with a little under 600 total backers — and the Kickstarter still has a week left!

Mother’s Cookbook will feature recipes for approximately 50 different EarthBound-inspired foods — such as Magic Cake, Mammoth Burgers, and Peanut Cheese Bars. When completed, the book will supposedly span over 140 pages — each one full of nostalgic goodness.

Mother’s Cookbook is slated for release sometime in late 2018, in hardcover, paperback, and digital, and will be published in part by FanGamer. Are any of you EarthBound fans going to be cooking up these tantalizing treats for yourselves? Which recipes do you hope to see? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
