    Definitely not a book for someone who gets squeamish or with a weak stomach. While the recipes are inventive, some of the "real facts' will have you shivering. I won a copy of this book during a Goodreads giveaway and can't wait to see my grandchildren's reaction to it. I am under no obligation to write a review and do so voluntarily. All thoughts, opinions, and ratings are my own.

    Ewww...Checked this one out from the library and really hope my kids don't want to make any of these recipes. Food should taste AND look good...not turn your stomach. Some interesting facts included, but I certainly don't want to eat anything after reading it.

    One of the most unusual cookbooks I have ever reviewed is “The Gross Cookbook – Awesome Recipes For (Deceptively) Disgusting Treats Kids Can Make” by Susanna Tee.

Full of disgusting, revolting, generally plain old gross food, this is one of the most fun and unique cookbooks ever. Before you dive into the gruesome ghoulishness, they do prepare you for what is going to come. Fair warning is offered in “Prepare To Be Disgusted”. The four “Revolting Rules” provide fair usage rules, there is an etiquette to this stuff too you know. After that brief introduction, you are thrown into the deep end of the loathsome lusciousness. “Squiggly Jelly Worms” is the first recipe and comes with completely awful and yet awesome drawings and photographs of what your end result could look like. The well laid out recipes are very easy to follow with step-by-step instructions. You even get handy tips and warnings for when your child will need an adult. The recipes aren’t the only thing in the book however, it also gives you a bit of an education with information about some of the exotic and unusual foods that are consumed around the world. Who knew that kids could gross themselves out and learn something new at the same time? Many of the recipes in the cookbook are designed for maximum shock value. One of my favorites is the “Cat Poop In The Litter Box”. This recipe alone has many uses for shockingly disturbing gags, excellent holiday treats at Hallowe’en, and just plain old tasty snacks if you have a bit of a sick bent. The graphics throughout the book mesh very well with the integrated full-color pictures consequently setting the atmosphere for a hilariously funny book. I don’t really think it could’ve been the same without such wonderful illustrations. Care clearly went into the placement of the recipes throughout the book. The “Roasted Mice” recipe directly preceded the “Roasted Rat” Gross Planet information about the delicacy from Vietnam. Such attention to detail truly makes this a spectacular book. The “Rules Of The Kitchen” finish up the book, along with “Cooking Lingo”. Both are essential go-to pages for a young cook. A Completely MUST Have Book This book is an absolute must-have for anybody who’s got a kid or is ever going to plan a Hallowe’en party. But truly it is not just I once a year book. Wet spaghetti in a bowl, for brains, and skinned grapes, for eye balls, was the best I did as a child in our summer Carnival “Mystery Body Part” tent. I can see that I probably would’ve used it often had I owned this book as a child. As an adult, I am unwilling to admit it how many, many times I will be referencing it. Seems like everybody who looked at this book enjoyed it thoroughly, yet was grossed out at the same time. Exactly, I think, the type of reaction one hopes/expects to get from this book. Can I really can gush enough about this book? I doubt it. It’s probably the most awesome book I’ve ever reviewed, certainly in a class by itself. I love it to death. Hopefully, that won’t result from some of these recipes. ;o) The full review can be viewed at The RecipesNow! Reviews and Recipes Magazine. The review is in response to a hard copy of the book sent to me by the publisher in return for an honest review.

    I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review. This was a delightfully disgusting book. At times (especially those real life things) the grossness was factor 9001, but this was mostly a really fun book that I enjoyed and I can't wait to try out some of the recipes myself. :P Confession time: This book is perfect for me. Back in my Neopets days I used to have a Gross Food gallery. With hundreds and hundreds of food that were disgusting.

Back in my Neopets days I used to have a Gross Food gallery. With hundreds and hundreds of food that were disgusting. I had binders full of information on what stuff I still needed, what stuff I had, how much everything costs. Yep, I really managed my gallery with love. It was also fun to find a new gross food to add, and sometimes I even had my friends there select if a food was really disgusting or not. So as you can see, this book is right in my lane. Gee, thanks to this book I miss those days. The book is split up in recipes parts and real life gross food parts. My favourite was the recipes, but I was happy that they added the real life things as well. It gave a bit of an insight in true disgusting stuff (and not fake-made/only looking disgusting made stuff as the recipes were). The real disgusting food section didn't really yield any surprises for me, but I can imagine for kids it would be a gruesome delight to read about it. As I said, my favourite part was the recipes. They were at times quite realistically disgusting. It didn't help that there were also illustrations to enhance the yuckiness. Some stuff was obvious not real, but for instance the frogspawn and the brownies with "worms" were properly ewww. I loved it! I would love to see the reactions of people to those foods, see if they will be disgusted by it. We have a mix of illustrations and photographs, which is a nice mix, it really made the book even more fun to read. What more? Ah yes, the instructions to the recipe were easy and simple to follow. Most recipes are quite small, but there are a few bigger ones. But each one had their instructions set up in various parts. From starting, to building, to showing it off. With tips here and there on how to make it better/how to present it. So all in all, I really liked this book and I would highly recommend it to everyone. Disgusting food banzai!

    Disgusting, revolting, and surprisingly delicious all at once. (Bread roll "intestines" with raspberry and cream cheese filling? Stuffed date "cockroaches"? Lychee and jam "eyeball" ice cubes?) Between each recipe, readers will learn about other delicacies around the world that might offend our American palates. There's some othering of those foods with implications that they really are gross, but there are also reminders to be open to considering different ways to use and enjoy food.

    This is the type of cookbook I can see my nephew loving!! It is full of fun and tasting, but disgusting to look at food that kids can make. It also includes after each recipe some world eating habits that may be strange to some. Examples include live wiggling octopus, bowls of grubs in broth, and even bats. Not good for my appetite, but great for kids cooking skills.

    This one really was gross. More gross than fun, but I'll bet 4th graders would LOVE it.

    The Gross Cookbook is a cookbook I will purchase because it has many projects I can do with my grandchildren. Santy Gutierrez illustrations were off the chart!
