The World’s First ‘Edible’ Cookbook

Well, I guess that sort of defeats the purpose of buying a cookbook if each of the recipes are only good for one use – but German design agency Korefe has created the first cookbook you can read, cook and eat.

Called ‘The Real Cookbook’, we stumbled across on Design Taxi, the cook-able and edible cookbook is made of 100% fresh pasta, and gives you the recipe on how to make a classic lasagne at the same time.  Other than instructions, The Real Cookbook plays an essential part as one of the main ingredients in making the lasagne—pasta pages are used as sheets in a lasagna – saving the chef time at the supermarket having to select which type of pasta to use.

Once baked, the book becomes good enough to eat, but what if you really liked the recipe? That’s a lot of cookbooks to buy. And you can FORGET passing down the recipes to younger generations. But it looks cool, and I guess that’s all that matters right? Right?

  1. I had to Pin this on Pinterest because it’s just so unique and unusual – never seen anything like it before! Thanks for sharing – your post had such a chic, forward-thinking feel to it, as does your blog. I’m glad to be connecting with you in our web adventures!

  2. Huh. That’s weird, and interesting all at the same time. It’s sort of like edible art. (perhaps one of those expensive trendy things for people who are suffering from too much money and boredom for their own good) P.S. Cool blog, and thanks for subscribing! – MoSop

  3. That is sooo cool. Where did you buy it? It would be such a nice gift for my best friend, he loves too cook but he’s a sucker when it comes to speaking or reading in English. Luckily he’s German,like me by the wa. So he will definitely be able to read this one. 😉
    Greetings from good old Germany,
