Astrology-Themed Cookbooks

There are a variety of cookbooks with an astrological theme, some written by astrologers who cook and some by chefs who have an interest in astrology. If you know of an astrological cookbook that isn’t listed here, please mention it in the comments.

There’s one website included with the cookbooks here ~ Gwen Sutherland Kaiser’s Intoxicated Zodiac. Gwen is a renowned mixologist who can shake and stir with the best of them. Plus, she has one extraordinary ability ~ she does it in alignment with the stars.

Here in no particular order are books in my collection.

Lobster for Leos, Cookies for Capricorn is a wonderful book by astrologer chef Sabra Ricci. Each section is devoted to one sign with recipes that give healthy support to various parts of the body. Easy to prepare recipes feature beneficial ingredients.

See my review of the book here and get a recipe for Lobster Guacamole!

Jeane Dixon's Astrological Cookbook

Jeane Dixon’s Astrological Cookbook breaks the signs down into decans, those 10 degree divisions of the signs. Since each sign is subruled by a different planet, foods vary a bit from decan to decan.

It was first published in 1976 and may a bit difficult to come by. I was lucky to find an autographed copy in a junk store for next to nothing.

Chocolate Astrology has some sinfully delicious recipes in a beautifully illustrated little book.

Cosmic Cuisine by Tom Jaine is a beautifully illustrated book with a very nice table of correspondences for the planets which goes beyond the usual foods associated with a sign.
