Redwall Wiki | Brian Jacques and Redwall Information

The Redwall Cookbook is a cooking accessory to the Redwall series by Brian Jacques. First published in 2005, it is the only official resource for Redwall recipes, with three minor exceptions (see Trivia section). The Redwall Cookbook features illustrations from Christopher Denise.


The Redwall Cookbook contains 36 food and drink recipes inspired by the Redwall series, including several dishes frequently mentioned in the novels, that one can cook by themselves. All the recipes are vegetarian, with the obvious exception of Shrimp 'n' Hotroot Soup.

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

As the cookbook does not include images of the prepared dishes, the Redwall Wiki has collected prepared recipe photos from fans.

  • 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, The Redwall Cookbook was finally published.
  • The Redwall Readers Club distributed recipes to members, among which included "Mossflower Autumn Fruit Pudding", "Baked Honeyed Apples", "Mole's Favourite Turnip and Tater Deeper 'N Ever Pie", and "Crispy Carrot Cakes."
