Waffle It! 101 Delicious Dishes to Create with Your Waffle Maker, Sandwich Maker, and Panini Press


Waffle It! is a graphically appealing and well written specialty cookbook with recipes curated by Kate Woodson. Released 10th Oct 2023 by Fox Chapel, it's 128 pages and is available in paperback and ebook formats. It's worth noting that the ebook format has a handy interactive table of contents as well as interactive links and references throughout. 

The recipes are arranged logically in thematic chapters: breakfast, lunch & snacks, dinner, sauces, and desserts. Recipes contain a description and background introduction, ingredients in a bullet list, and step-by-step cooking instructions. Ingredient measurements are supplied in imperial (American) standard measurements only.  The nutritional information is not included. Extra tips or recipe alternatives are listed in text boxes in the recipes. The recipes themselves are fairly straightforward and are made for the most part with easily sourced ingredients. 

The photography is well done and abundant; most of the recipes are illustrated with photographs which are clear and easy to understand.Vegetarian recipes are not marked as such. Many of the recipes which aren't vegan-friendly could be made plant based with a little experimentation. (Almost all of the recipes are streamlined and don't contain many ingredients).

This is a nice collection of recipes and even allowing for the fact that some of them are very similar to others in the same category, this will keep waffle/panini/sandwich press fans going for ages. These are simple "everyday" recipes which are anything but boring. 

Four and a half stars. This is a solid recipe book which will be used. It would make a superlative housewarming gift to a friend or newly fledged family member moving to university or a first apartment.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
