UPDATE: 7/20/2021 – We've updated the original article to share the final cover design for the book.
Lara Croft has inspired fans to expand their horizons and seek adventure for 25 years, and Tomb Raider: The Official Cookbook and Travel Guide brings home a taste of the most vibrant cultures and culinary traditions in the world. Using Lara’s passport as a framework, we’ve curated over 40 recipes that include power snacks for energy on the go, appetizers, entrees, drinks, desserts, and meals with franchise ties.
Food is undeniably at the center of culture. The ingredients reflect regional resources, the preparation is passed down as tradition, and the consumption is often a centerpiece for community celebrations. We break bread to make guests feel welcome, gift meals to comfort those mourning, and seek food together to solidify our social bonds. This is all a fancy way of saying – we know how important food is.
As such, we are collaborating with our network of Official Tomb Raider Fansites and community members across the globe to ensure the authenticity of each recipe. We share their excitement that other fans around the world will get a taste of their traditions, be it preparing Ceviche from Peru, Kathi Rolls from India, or Beans on Toast – Lara’s favorite food – from England.
The travel guide grounds Lara’s fantastical adventures in real-world locations through cultural context and offers suggestions for the best places to explore if you want to follow in her footsteps.
Featuring beautiful full color photography as well as art from the games, we think this will be a great gift for fans, travelers, and food aficionados alike.
Tomb Raider: The Official Cookbook and Travel Guide releases on October 26, and you can preorder it here.
