Square Enix reveals a special book on the way for Final fantasy fans as we're getting The Ultimate Final Fantasy XIV Cookbook. Working with Insight Editions, and penned by Victoria Rosenthal, this is a recipe book for gamers who will have a chance to "experience the gastronomical delights" that the world of Hydaelyn has to offer. The book is being released on November 9th, just in time to plan some meals ahead of Thanksgiving and be a possible holiday gift, which you can currently pre-order. Here's the details of what's inside.

Featuring favorite flavors from across Hydaelyn and Norvrandt with easy-to-follow instructions, this tome provides numerous tips on how to make the most of the ingredients involved and includes recipes such as the Farmer's Breakfast, Knight's Bread of Coerthas and La Noscea's Rolanberry Cheesecake.

Two versions of the book are being released to the public as you can see the standard edition cover up at the top, while this secondary cover you see below will be available as a Gamestop exclusive in North America. Both of which will sell for $35. Aside from the cover, both of them are identical cookbooks on the inside, so you'll get the same experience regardless. It's just a matter of which one you want sitting on a shelf when you pull it out to cook something delicious.
