Idiot's Guide to Alien Food, Nov 9 2000
Besides playing Neelix on "Voyager", author Ethan Phillips is a respected chef, thus, he knows from whence he speaks. The above subtitle indicates that the recipes are simple enough for any sentient being to prepare.
With common Earth ingredients, you can whip up edible dead-ringers of dishes seen on the "Star Trek" series, e.g., soba noodles for Klingon "gagh" or serpent worm.
Cast members also share their personal recipes, and there are interesting sections by the show's special-effects people on how they prepare otherworld fare for the cameras (alas, inedible.).
Probably the most fun cookbook you'll ever read. Perfect for Haloween and sci-fi parties.
