Many astronomers and amateur astronomers enjoy combining their passion for viewing the heavens above with the task of cooking. Other than chocolate bars such as Mars and Milky Way, it has not been easy to come up with "celestial dishes" -- until now! This themed book gives recipes for 13 three-course meals related to objects of the Solar System and the Milky Way Galaxy. It includes information on these celestial objects such as their size, color, temperature, and so on. Presenting both hot and cold main dishes, plus sweet and savory desserts, this book provides well-thought out and easy-to-prepare menus. And while preparing the food you can follow the stories that have inspired the creation of these particular dishes. Various recipes in the book can also be combined to form whole new themed meals such as "Giant Plants" and "Tiny Worlds." The imagery in the book adds to the enjoyment of cooking, with the latest photographs taken by planetary probes and space telescopes and with the dishes photographed as if they were "hovering" in the weightlessness of space.
