No idea if its been mentioned previously but there is a cook book called 'She Came in Through the Kitchen Window: Recipes Inspired by the Beatles and Their Music' by Stephen J. Spignesi.

I NEARLY DIED!!!!!!!! *clang* I NEARLY DIED!!!!!!!!!! *clangbeatlemaniacs_02_gif

Falling, yes I'm falling, those puns keep calling, I laugh again. 

I've made many, many bad Beatles puns over the years, sometimes rewriting whole lyrics. "Hey Dad, unlock the car... Remember to let us into your car..." and "You're Gonna Lose That Head" for Halloween are just two. But I never thought of food-puns. These terrible puns are wonderful!!!!!!!!!!

Will you still need me, will you still feed me, if I make fun of (19)64? 

Hey Food, would you be mad, if I made you into a Beatlesong? 

I Wanna Eat Your Bran (A wanna eat leftovers, babe, A wanna eat yo' bran) 

Got To Get You Out Of My Fridge 

Good Cornflakes, Good Cornflakes (the original title was inspired by an advert for cornflakes-- still, kinda lame) 

And this next, my crown jewel, is in the back-log. There's a restaurant in Athens, Georgia, which is home to the University of Georgia, where our family likes to eat when we visit-- we have family there. It's also where I discovered Revolver, which they had in the jukebox there-- good memories! Well, my granddad's a great joker, so we sorta accidentally co-wrote this as an ode. They have the best burgers, and I don't even like burgers. So: 

"Is there anybody going to listen to my story, all about the Grille near UGA? 

It's the kind of Grille where you eat so much it makes you sorry, still you don't regret a single day. 

Ahhh, Grille... <sigh> Ahhhh, Grille.... 

When I think of all the times I've tried so hard to leave it, I would turn away and start to cry. 

Others promise the eats to me and I believe them, after all this time I don't know why. 

Ahhh, Grille... <sigh> Ahhhh, Grille...." 

But don't order fish. It tastes like a rubber sole from and Old Brown Shoea-hard-days-night-george-10 

(to the stove) I'd love to tuuuuuurn yooooooou ooooooooon.... 

... he blew his food out in the oven...

Sorry I fell in your lap, I'm just a Jell-ous Pie 

She Licks You (about ice cream? The Beatles supposedly made this mistake singing in German) 

I've got a whole lotta things to heat up, When I Get Home

And then, of course, we have Cynthia Lennon's book A Twist Of Lennon, and Scrambled Eggs, but that's not a pun. 

So one last word of advice: 

Honey Don't Run With A Knife.

Half of what I say is meaningless... but I say it just to fill the other half with Beatlerubbish.

Nice, @ewe2! 

Bread and the phrase "Yes It Is" made me think... 

"If you bake bread tonight *weeh, waom*

Remembeh what I said tonight *wah, wom* 

Bread is the fo-ood that will make me blue, in spite of you, it's true, yes it is. *weem* 

Gluten is the thing that's bad *weeh, waom* 

Eat it, and I will be sad *wah, wom* 

I will remember all the bread I ate, before this date, it's true, yes it is." 

Ah, how tragic is gluten intolerance! a-hard-days-night-george-9
