Fancy Feast, the cat food brand owned by Purina, recently released a line of single-serve cat food called Petites. To promote the new product, the company also published an accompanying cookbook for people looking to prepare meals that match their feline companions’ entrees.

According to the New York Post, the cookbook is titled the “Fancy Feast Petites Feast Cookbook” and it includes 12 single-serve recipes that align with the three flavors in the new Petites line. The “Fancy Feast Petites Feast Cookbook” is available to download for free at the Purina website.

Food and Wine reports that the cookbook was created by Fancy Feast’s in-house chef, Amanda Hassner, who had some help from Jerrelle Guy and Josh Snyder. (Fun cat-related fact about Snyder: He is married to Angela Kinsey, the actress who played Angela Martin, the cat-obsessed Dunder Mifflin employee on “The Office”).

Hassner commented on the cookbook in a recent Fancy Feast press release. She stated:

“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 New York Post states that Fancy Feast’s new Petites can be purchased at major retailers in stores and online, and sell for a suggested retail price of $1.07. The line’s three flavors are: Seared salmon with spinach in gravy, ocean whitefish with tomato in gravy and grilled chicken with rice in gravy.
