The Redwall Cookbook

The Redwall Cookbook was published as an accessory to the Redwall series. It is the only official resource for Redwall recipes, with two exceptions (see Trivia section).


This book features numerous recipes from the Redwall series one can cook by themselves. All the recipes are vegetarian, with the obvious exception of Shrimp 'n' Hotroot Soup.

It also features illustrations from Christopher Denise.

The plot follows Sister Pansy through one cycle of the seasons at Redwall Abbey, as she becomes the Head Cook.

  • In's Ask Brian, Volume 3, a reader asked if Brian Jacques "ever thought of publishing a Redwall cookbook?" The response was "I have thought about it and had many many requests like yours. But there are so many calls upon my time that this is not a priority at the moment. I would rather write another Redwall adventure!!" Approximately a decade later, this cookbook was finally published.
