The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Cookbook. Forward by Winston Groom. First Edition, First Printing. Oxmoor House. Birmingham, 1994.

$25.00

In an incredible example of life imitating art, the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company became a household name through the blockbuster success of the film Forrest Gump. Starring Tom Hanks, the film swept the Oscars with wins for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and several others. It was based on the 1986 novel by Winston Groom. Yet even during its peak commercial success in 1994, no one could have imagined how the film would have such a lasting impact on our culture–except perhaps the publishers of this volume, The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Cookbook. It is a slim volume of recipes based on the beloved Bubba and his adoration for shrimp. Published the same year as the film, it precedes the actual existence of the shrimping company, which did not open for business until 1996 as a franchise extension of the film. With a foreword by Winston Groom in the voice of Forrest Gump, a jacket design featuring Jenny, and numerous other references to the film, this first edition provides spectacular cultural connections to that remarkable Forrest Gump.

This first edition, first printing is in fine condition. In the original white laminate boards, fine. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, fine.

A fine first edition of this charming Bubba Gump cookbook.
