Eating For Two Pregnancy Cravings

"Gourmet" Pregnancy Craving Cookbook Is the Most Hysterical Thing Ever

Coconut custard pie and olives — that's what my mum says she craved when she was pregnant with me. But that combination is definitely not the most bizarre craving that has been had by a woman eating for two — in fact, some pregnant women get non-food cravings as well. During pregnancy the body wants what the body wants (though we don't recommend actually eating things that aren't edible).

Vicky Jacob-Ebbinghaus and Juarez Rodrigues both work in advertising, but as a side project they thought it would be interesting (and funny) to bring weird pregnancy cravings to life by actually preparing, eating, photographing, and critiquing them — all for a cookbook. Eating For Two — which now officially goes by Pickles and Ice Cream — was created after the duo read research about pregnancy cravings, and they chose meals to create based on submissions of cravings from real pregnant women.

Vicky told POPSUGAR, "We really enjoyed recreating the recipes and imagining what they would taste like before we tried them. There was also a bit of schadenfreude watching the other person try the dishes, too — we laughed quite a lot." We're betting that the book will adorn coffee tables all over the world, as it's not only well photographed, but hilarious.

Read through to see the surprisingly beautiful meals, read the hysterical reviews of each dish (which were based off "a complicated system of mood and personal taste"), and pre-order Pickles and Ice Cream (officially out July 11, 2017).
