Description

Square meatballs. Sunrise mashed potatoes. Lemon blizzard parfaits. It’s dinnertime, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs style, and you get to be the chef!

The tiny town of Chewandswallow is known for its edible weather: soup rain, mashed potato snow, and hamburger windstorms. And now people everywhere can also enjoy the delectable dishes featured in the bestselling Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Grandpa has been hard at work editing and compiling his favorite recipes, and he’s ready to share.

However, this is Grandpa we’re talking about, so don’t expect a dry, straightforward collection. No, in addition to his thorough directions on how to make everything from Strawberry Tallcake to—oh yes, yes, yes—Meatballs, this spiral-bound book is filled with clever asides and scrumptious illustrations.

From the Foggy Pea Soup to the Hamburgers Heading Toward Earth, these legendary recipes are delicious and easy to follow—so you can re-create culinary scenes from a cherished classic (no umbrellas necessary).
