One of the more charming things you may not expect in the world of Destiny is that there’s an entire set of lore all about the foods the characters in the game eat. Ramen was highlighted in the launch trailer for Destiny 2, but there have also been cookies in the form of Gjallardoodles for a questline, and celery instead of Halloween candy that everyone’s favorite party pooper Eris Morn gave you as a “treat.”
With that in mind, Bungie, Insight Editions, and author Victoria Rosenthal have partnered to bring us an official cookbook of real-world versions of Destiny 2’s recipes. Rosenthal, who creates graphics for NASA as part of her day job, has translated many of those items alongside a few cocktails of your choosing.
Each recipe in the book – which is 208 pages long – come with step-by-step instructions and full color guide to help “fans go on their own culinary adventure.” I’m a big fan of trying out new recipes with my wife, and I plan to try out a few of these recipes to share the outcome with you on a future Fireteam Chat episode. In the meantime, check out a few exclusives they sent over to us that you can try for yourself at home in the slideshow below (no word yet on whether or not Radiolarian Pudding from the 2019 in-game Dawning event will be included, but I’m willing to bet it would be white chocolate pudding and be absolutely delicious.)

Destiny: The Official Cookbook is set to hit store shelves on August 4th, 2020 for the retail price of $34.99USD, or $26.89USD if you pre-order on Amazon. To my surprise Insight Editions also have several othere themed cookbooks such as Marvel Eat the Universe, The Elder Scrolls Cookbook, and one that features prominent WWE Wrestlers expressing the importance of a balanced breakfast (“these ham and pineapple stuffed “doughnuts” are a great choice for your first meal of the day, or as your last meal on Earth.” – WWE’s Big Boss Man.)
The Destiny equivalent quote for the Spicy Ramen reads “Spicy Ramen has been a staple here in the Tower for as long as I can remember. Highlighting an incredible combination of flavors and spices, this is one of the best recipes the Golden Age has to offer. Not even the Red Legion could bring down these golden noodles swimming in rich flavorful broth.”
