Angry Birds iPhone game soon to be a cook book

Angry Birds maker Rovio plan to release game inspired cookbook

Fans of tongue-in-cheek iPhone game Angry Birds can soon try their hand at preparing creative cuisine inspired by the game's crazy antics.

According to the Daily Mail, Rovio, the game's developer, has announced that it wants to build on its runaway success by putting out a cookbook inspired by its fowl and pig characters.

While it's not been revealed what dishes will be included in the self-published book - which will net the company 90 per cent of the profits - it could feature something like Epicurean.com's Bacon and BBQ Bird recipe.

The dish features a fowl of your choice marinated in Italian salad dressing and seasoned with paprika, sage, garlic granules, salt and pepper, and wrapped in bacon.

While this may seem like an odd move for a videogames company, chief marketing officer Peter Vesterbacka defended the decision.

"We want to be insanely profitable in every business we enter," he said.

The company already has Angry Birds branded toys and clothing as well as an upcoming animated TV-show.
