The Geeky Chef Cookbook
The Geeky Chef Cookbook: Real-Life Recipes for Your Favorite Fantasy Foods - Unofficial Recipes from Doctor Who, Games of Thrones, Harry Potter, and more - Cassandra Reeder

I always like it when people take something they like, in this case food, and look in a lot of different places how other people are dealing with it. In the geeky chef cookbook, accompanying the blog, there is a collection of foods, both savory and sweet that has links with many fandoms.

The recipes often look great, but what I particularly liked about this cookbook, except for the research that went into designing foods that have something very meagre descriptions in the works they originate from, was the sheer number of different fandoms that the book touches upon. I think it is simply impossible, if you even slightly identify as geeky, to not find at least some of your favorites here.

I haven’t made any of the recipes myself, although I really want to make those lemon cakes from ASOIAF, the cake from Portal, and the cauldron cakes from HP. Apparently, I’m more of a sweet tooth than I give myself credit from.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

I have yet to try any of the receipts, so this review is just for the book's contents.

 

Have you ever wanted to throw a theme party? Or just wanted to throw together a special dinner for you geek girlfriend/boyfriend? Now you can!


How about starting the dinner with a nice Slurm from Futurama or if you want to get your significant other in special mood an alcoholic beverage like a Romulan Ale.

 


Some snacks and appetizers is a must; Perhaps he/she/they are a Doctor Who fan? Some Fish Fingers and Custard or Lembas from LOTR. Hell why not some Spoo (Babylon 5)


Now for dinner; a nice Lamb Stew with Plums just the way Katniss wants it. Perhaps you are really lucky and have gotten yourself some Star Trek fans over for dinner or have a girlfriend/boyfriend that is a Trekkie then you can serve Plomeek Soup.

 


As for the entrée, if you have started with the Plommek Soup why not cook some Gagh, a dish that any fun loving Klingon love.

 


Now we have come to my favorite part of the book; Cakes and Cupcakes and boy here we have some real treats. How about some Lemon cake (A Song of Ice and Fire) or Butter Cakes (Silent Hill) or some Cauldron Cakes, or all three of them?

 


Everyone still hungry for more, how about a dessert? Some Turkish Delight straight out of Narnia, they are so good you will betray your siblings for them. Or some Pumpkin Pasties that would make any Harry Potter fan overjoyed with happiness?

 

 

I received this copy from the publisher through Edelweiss in return for an honest review!
