Angry Birds cookbook is full of egg-cellent recipes

Amie Parker-Williams has a flick through the the new Angry Birds cookbook and a natter with chef Aldo Zilli in this video from the book's launch.

Picturing the Angry Birds caged up in a kitchen together, we could only imagine a Gordon Ramsey-style tantrum, an epic food fight and a grand old mess, but how wrong we were.

It turns out that our favourite animated avians managed to rein in their tempers long enough to pull together a cookbook full of eggy recipes for the enjoyment of others. And no -- we're not yolking.

Amie Parker-Williams was at the launch of Bad Piggies' Egg Recipes and had a sneak peek of the book, as well as a chinwag with chef Aldo Zilli who compiled the recipes, all of which you can see in this video.

Fortunately you don't have to be an egg-xpert cook to have a go at any of these dishes -- the idea is that they're pretty simple so all the family can get involved. There are also plenty of activities and jolly illustrations to cast your eyes over too.

The release of the book coincides with the launch of the latest version of the Angry Birds game, which is yet to be announced, but may well be a Christmas version called Wreck the Halls, according to Angry Bird's Nest.

Angry Birds has had 500 million downloads and gained 10 million Facebook fans during its short life and is turning into a brand of its own, spawning toys, keyrings, speaker docks and even a board game.

Do you love Angry Birds enough to buy the cookbook, or do you think it's one merchandising step too far? Let us know in the comments below or on our Facebook page.
