Kate's Staff Pick

Kate, Head of BPL’s Children’s Department, chose The Unofficial TikTok Cookbook: 75 Internet-Breaking Recipes for Snacks, Drinks, Treats, and More! by Valentina Mussi as her staff pick. She said, “this cookbook is a family favorite, my tween and teen daughters love working together and trying to recreate some of their viral favorites”. TikTok has quickly become one of the most popular media platforms and is often used as a way to educate; with this being the case, many recipes have gone viral after being featured in videos. This cookbook uses emojis, slang, and hashtags to create a digital “vibe,” that media lovers are drawn to. It also has the same bright colors, eye-catching photos, and easy-to-read fonts featured in TikTok. It provides social media tips to grow your following and make viral videos. Now let's talk food - there’s dozens of recipes in each of the six chapters that you’re sure to love, but some of my personal favorites include Mini Baked Donuts (p.152), Golden Milk Latte (p.33), and the Skillet Pizza Mac ‘n’ Cheese (p.119). There’s a reason these recipes went viral, so you’re not going to want to miss out. Find this book under the call number, “641.53 Mus” in the Adult Department Nonfiction section. 


If you’re a fan of Mussi’s cookbook, we have a very similar title by Emily Stephenson called, As Cooked on TikTok: Fan Favorites and Recipe Exclusives from More than 40 TikTok Creators! that you’ll want to check out. For sixty more viral recipes, QR codes to famous creators’ pages, and a stunning display of graphic design, find this book under the call number, “641.5 Tik.”
