Ultimate Final Fantasy XIV Cookbook FFXIV

Square Enix seems to be releasing a Final Fantasy XIV cookbook later this year. As spotted by Wario64 on Twitter, a listing for a hardcover publication of The Ultimate Final Fantasy XIV Cookbook popped up on Simon & Schuster. The website modified the title shortly afterward to simply “licensed video game cookbook.” The book will reportedly cost $35. The listing states it will go on sale in North and Central American territories on November 9, 2021.

Wario64 took a screenshot of the digital catalog before the webmaster modified it. According to the previous description, FFXIV producer Naoki Yoshida will pen the book’s foreword. If the listing is true, Insight Editions will publish the FFXIV cookbook. The publisher has worked on popular media franchises like Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics.

Apparently, chefs (or Tonberries) of any skill level can sharpen their knives and get cooking right away. The book will have step-by-step directions and detailed photos to help them recreate in-game food easily. All in all, the hardcover will contain 192 pages and more than 70 recipes from Hydaelyn. Amazon has the FFXIV cookbook up for pre-order now.

Coming off the heels of the most recent 14-hour livestream, FFXIV fans have been enjoying a wave of news. We recently found out the Endwalker Benchmark tool will launch soon on July 11. The software will also come with a character creator that will include Vieran males. Additionally, more housing via a lottery system will be available in the MMORPG’s future, too.

According to the listing, The Ultimate Final Fantasy XIV Cookbook will release on November 9, 2021, for $35.
