I have the Nanny Ogg cookbook. I've never cooked anything from there, but it's a great read in its own right.

I am absolutely sure I've seen a cookbook - or at least a recipe blog - devoted to foods from fantasy. There were a lot of ASoIaF recipes, but also things from The Lies of Locke Lamora, including trying to figure out how to make that ridiculous cocktail that has a hot poker quenched in it. (I remember this because Lynch himself was commenting on it, having done firefighting training subsequent to writing it, with "oh god, that is so dangerous, wtf was I thinking??" and that sticks in the memory.)

And lo, after a quick google, here is the recipe for a ginger scald!

Skyrim cookbook? You mean the recipe for all those giant cheese wheels?  ;D

Anne McCaffrey (Pern) wrote a cookbook. It was recipes provided by other SFF authors. Apparently it’s now fairly rare and rather expensive.
