Angry Birds: Bad Piggies Best Egg Recipes Cookbook


I am excited beyond belief!

About a year ago, Rovio Entertainment, inventors of the game Angry Birds, asked me to document the food culture of their famously egg hungry pigs. Their talented developers gathered over 200 of my resulting photographs in a fun and useful interactive cookbook app., which contains the pig’s egg recipes, and animated illustrations of the them in their native environment. It was a great honor to be able to spend so much time with the pigs to create the Bad Piggies Best Egg Recipes.
The pigs are fantastic cooks who love good food. They are also kind of messy and their life is in a constant state of flux and chaos. “What makes this cookbook special is that the photographs of the app are taken by the pigs, which means that your own dish always looks better than the ones in the book,” said Sanna Lukander, VP of Books.  â€œQuite a change from the average cookbooks on the market!”

You can download the app at the iTunes store for only .99 today!
