“Saba creates and photographs food that is both whimsical and downright playful.” — Bon Appétit

Austin, TX ― National Pun Day (yes, that’s a thing) is May 15, and what better way to mark the occasion than by digging into the pun-filled pages of Don’t Worry Be Ha-PEA: 101 Deliciously Clever Food Puns from cookbook author and social media sensation Marie Saba?

Saba brings food to life in this compilation of quirky, creative and inspirational food puns that will test your knowledge of pop culture (think Celine Dijon and Robert Brownie, Jr.), tourist attractions (St. Peter’s Basilica), cartoon characters (Elmer Fudge) and much more. Saba’s tasty visual puzzles are as intriguing as they are appetizing, beautifully photographed and family-friendly.

Don’t Worry, Be Ha-PEA is a perfect gift or coffee-table book for anyone who appreciates good food and clever wordplay. Entertaining and light-hearted, Saba’s quirky puns aim to inspire creative thinking, connection and laughter that will leave readers craving more.

“Don’t Worry, Be Ha-PEA reminds us all that we can find humor in the most unlikely of places — the back of the pantry or the bottom of the veggie drawer,” Saba said. “It’s just the book we need right now.”
