We often share things with our cats, and food is certainly at the top of that list. While there are a few human foods for cats that are safe in small quantities, there are many human foods we must forgo offering to our feline friends for their safety. When it comes to what our cats eat, their palate is quite different from our own. Clearly, we are not going to eat cat food, although our feline friends are naturally curious about whatever it is we choose to dine on.
The cat food giant Fancy Feast has decided to combine these two worlds by creating a cookbook for cat lovers/owners with recipes for humans—centered around cat food dishes. (I've officially seen it all now!)
A Dozen Purrfect Recipes
Apparently, Fancy Feast must envision cat owners as being single because each of their 12 recipes featured in their free and downloadable cookbook are intended as single-servings. But, in their defense, the meals in the cookbook are sweetly referred to as "petite feasts," so it naturally makes sense that they cater to one!
We know that Fancy Feast meals for cats are intended to be delectable, delicious, and the purrfect little portion for your feline friend. Fancy Feast's in-house chef, Amanda Hassner, said in a press release, "From Chicken and Ramen with Tomato Honey Butter Sauce to Whitefish and Asparagus with Beurre Blanc, the cookbook features recipes that are elevated but easy enough to whip up on a weeknight. Each dish was inspired by the small-plate restaurant trend. The recipes are for humans but were created in honor of the dishes you will be serving your cat."
The 12 recipes featured in the free cookbook were created by Hassner, in collaboration with James Beard Award Nominee Jerrelle Guy, as well as actor-turned-baker Josh Snyder. Brand Manager at Fancy Feast, Lauren Pershing, said, "Fancy Feast Petites was created by cat lovers for cat lovers. We're so excited to offer this new single-serve line — not only is it a more convenient option for cat owners, but it's also an elevated experience meant to please our cats' refined palates while getting them the nutrients they need."
In case you were wondering, you won't be surprised to find that there are several fish dishes on the menu. Because if there's one thing that we know all cats love, it's fish!
