    I love cooking and I love these geeky cook books some of the recipes in this book just seemed like fillers Dr Who s ball bearing cakes just buns with ball bearing on top but it s just for fun.I have already post it notes of quite a few recipes I want to try This one has food recipes from Hannibal, Buffy the vampire slayer, X files , A song if ice and fire, His dark materials and American gods and a million others.

    I won this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway and used it to cook the dinner from the Hannibal episode Amuse Bousche tonight Though I used tofu instead of pork or long pork This is a very cute and well photographed cookbook it s a lot of fun to flip through, full to bursting with all sorts of fandoms spread across a lot of genres and categories from Minecraft to The Hobbit to Twin Peaks, and a lotI am particularly keen on the drink recipes I m making Black Yukon Sucker I won this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway and used it to cook the dinner from the Hannibal episode Amuse Bousche tonight Though I used tofu instead of pork or long pork This is a very cute and well photographed cookbook it s a lot of fun to flip through, full to bursting with all sorts of fandoms spread across a lot of genres and categories from Minecraft to The Hobbit to Twin Peaks, and a lotI am particularly keen on the drink recipes I m making Black Yukon Sucker Punch from Twin Peaks right now, using whipped aquafaba in place of the egg whites , and I m stoked to try the X Files vegan rice cream at the back of the book This would make a great gift for any fandom nerd in your life, or for yourself, if you re interested in cooking If you re vegan like me, the recipes aren t that hard to change, and she gives some advice in the forward it s under the Live Long and Make It Vulcan heading 3 I ll definitely be checking out her other books as well

    I received this book as a digital advance copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I dont really classify myself as a geek, but my keen interest in novelty cookbooks prompted me to click on the link to readMuch to my surprise, my love of Lord of the Rings and the Harry Potter series, as well as my appreciation of what I considered to be mainstream movies and television The Big Lebowski, Blade Runner, Twin Peaks and others landed me squarely in the realm of geekdom Since I I received this book as a digital advance copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I don t really classify myself as a geek, but my keen interest in novelty cookbooks prompted me to click on the link to readMuch to my surprise, my love of Lord of the Rings and the Harry Potter series, as well as my appreciation of what I considered to be mainstream movies and television The Big Lebowski, Blade Runner, Twin Peaks and others landed me squarely in the realm of geekdom Since I would be able to somewhat relate to the content, I decided to dive in.In a short Introduction, the author states her Prime Directive and two General Orders Basically, it boils down to that 1 she will try to make the recipes as accurate as possible 2 she will try to keep things simple and 3 she will try to make the end product taste good Of course, she does note that the key here is that she will try her best to balance these goals, even if it is not possible to balance them equally.After the Introduction, the vast majority of the remaining 80 pages are recipes The first tranche are the basic prep recipes pie crust, yellow cake, soup base, simple syrup, spice blends that are referred to in recipes throughout the book There is also a substitution table at the end of the chapter that lists vegan friendly ingredient swaps that could be used to convert conventional baking recipes to vegan baking recipes Some of the swaps look a little dubious like applesauce for eggs but I ve yet to try them so I really can t say how well they actually work.The truly imaginative recipes come after the basic prep recipes These are divided into eight chapters nonalcoholic beverages alcoholic beverages appetizers, snacks, and sides soups and stews main courses cakes and cupcakes pies and tarts other desserts Each recipe is clearly labeled with the title and the work that inspired its creation The headnotes are one or two paragraphs explaining the geeky reference where in the work did the food or beverage appear why is it significant in the work and one or two paragraphs explaining the author s interpretation of the fictional food or beverage The ingredients are listed in a column with measurements both in American units and Metric units where appropriate As promised in the Introduction, the vast majority of the ingredients in the recipes are common and easy to find items There were a few that seemed to require a trip to an Asian market, another that required sheep s milk cheese, and another that required lingonberry preserves, but that was pretty much the extent of the oddities The recipe steps are clearly numbered with one or two actions per number, which makes them super easy to understand and follow Any ancillary guidance is put into a colorful call out box of Kitchen Nerd Notes after the recipe steps.The recipe selection is mind boggling For better or for worse, each recipe was distinct and unique I really didn t feel very good about some of them especially the Herring and Pumpkin Pot Pie from Kiki s Delivery Service but I still found some that I would cook in my own kitchen and serve to my friends Although a good portion of the recipes in the book seemed to be desserts, they definitely weren t 101 variations on the vanilla cupcake.Almost every recipe is accompanied by a heavily styled full color photo on the facing page The food styling evoked the scenery of the fantasy work that the recipe was based on Despite the styling, the photograph still gave a good idea of what the finished recipe should look like, which sometimes wasn t readily apparent from just reading the recipe steps.Overall, although I enjoyed reading this cookbook it definitely made me laugh out loud in places I probably would not add it to my permanent collection None of the recipes really struck me as must haves or keepers, even though a few seemed like they would be fun if I were to do a theme party From the author s comments throughout the recipe headnotes and other text, it really seemed like she put her best foot forward with her first cookbook If this cookbook accomplished anything, it made me curious about what was in that first book.I have yet to attempt any recipes from this cookbook, although I still have a fair bit of time left on my advance reader copy to do so When I do, I will update this review

    Cooking Awesome Fandom cooking Even better I m really grateful I got to read this.The book is divided into sections based on type including an introduction, non alcoholic drinks, alcoholic drinks, appetizers snacks and sides, soups and stews, main courses, cakes and cupcakes, pies and tarts, and other desserts It makes it easy to navigate, based on what sort of food you re in the mood for Let s talk about the good first I really like that under each recipe title, it tells you whatever Cooking Awesome Fandom cooking Even better I m really grateful I got to read this.The book is divided into sections based on type including an introduction, non alcoholic drinks, alcoholic drinks, appetizers snacks and sides, soups and stews, main courses, cakes and cupcakes, pies and tarts, and other desserts It makes it easy to navigate, based on what sort of food you re in the mood for Let s talk about the good first I really like that under each recipe title, it tells you whatever video game or show that the recipe came from Beneath that, for every recipe there s a little paragraph that explains the context such as what episode in what season, or why the food is relevant to the plot, things like that The recipes are in short, concise, numbered steps and for almost all the recipes there s a color photograph of the finished project They re themed to the show fandom, which is pretty cute There s also adorable little doodles in the empty white spaces that fill the book out a bitand make it seem a bitwhimsical There s a mix of recipes from video games, television, and film I also really appreciated that when a recipe called for meat or animal product, the author offered up substitutions on how to make it vegetarian friendly There s also a bunch of tips sprinkled throughout the recipes It s really a good book for beginners First, you have the numbered, easy steps and all the photos But quite a few of the recipes are also a bit of a cheat , like using canned cherries or Cocoa Puffs.At times this book kind of had a weird tone at times I know it s a cookbook, hear me out There s a recipe from Doctor Who, in which the author explains in a way that makes it sound like she s annoyed, how many fans ask her for a Jammie Dodger or Jelly Babies recipe Like, THESE THINGS ALREADY EXIST So So do a few of the other recipes in the book Pumpkin Juice, for example That doesn t mean you can t make your own version my Pinterest feed is filled with homemade versions of Oreos and Poptarts It just seemed a weird thing to put in there It was also a little weird when she talked about My Little Pony and how a show for little girls turned into a show for adults But then she only really talks about bronies I mean Little boys watch it, and so do adult women Just weird Anywho, back to the good Some of the recipes that I m most excited to make include Ambrosia The Sims , Herring and Pumpkin Pot Pie Kiki s Delivery Service , and Dauntless Chocolate Cake Divergent Other than the weird nitpicks that I ve mentioned, this is a pretty good cookbook For me personally, it was a bit video game heavy, but it s impossible to nail everyone s fandoms exactly From Breaking Bad to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, there s recipes here you re bound to get the reference to, and that you ll want to eat It s approachable for any cooking level It s great if you host viewing parties, or a theme party, or even Halloween which is why this is included in my Halloween countdown It s a book for the nerd cook in your life, and it s one that I d use in my kitchen.I received a copy in exchange for my honest review

    I must confess, I am only a geek by marriage I know, I know, I am actively trying to up my geek I thought spending a decade with a Super Geek Hubby would have prepared me better for this cookbook but I must not be as big of a geek as I first assumed because I couldn t see the connection between many of these recipes and the Sci Fi Fantasy counterpart Additionally, I thought it covered way too many different shows books movies I thought maybe focusing on a few different ones rather than I must confess, I am only a geek by marriage I know, I know, I am actively trying to up my geek I thought spending a decade with a Super Geek Hubby would have prepared me better for this cookbook but I must not be as big of a geek as I first assumed because I couldn t see the connection between many of these recipes and the Sci Fi Fantasy counterpart Additionally, I thought it covered way too many different shows books movies I thought maybe focusing on a few different ones rather than throwing them all into one book would have been better

    Race Point Publishing and NetGalley provided me with an electronic copy of The Geeky Chef Strikes Back I was under no obligation to review this book and my opinion is freely given.The recipes in The Geeky Chef Strikes Back are inspired by science fiction and fantasy movies, books, video games, and television, such as Harry Potter, Minecraft, Game of Thrones, and Star Trek I probably would not make any of the recipes from this book, except if I decided to throw a theme party Some of the Race Point Publishing and NetGalley provided me with an electronic copy of The Geeky Chef Strikes Back I was under no obligation to review this book and my opinion is freely given.The recipes in The Geeky Chef Strikes Back are inspired by science fiction and fantasy movies, books, video games, and television, such as Harry Potter, Minecraft, Game of Thrones, and Star Trek I probably would not make any of the recipes from this book, except if I decided to throw a theme party Some of the recipes are loosely affiliated with a popular movie or show, while others would be right at home on set during filming Readers should be aware that this cookbook is the author s interpretation of the foods served in some of her favorite shows and are not official recipes.The single best recipe in this book is Los Pollos Hermanos Chicken, not because of its television show ties, but due to the delectable and well seasoned pan fried chicken The written descriptions of each of the recipes were, at times, grammatically incorrect, but I can assume that any editing issues will be fixed when the book is in print.I expected to getout of this cookbook, so I was pretty disappointed by it Certain readers who are huge fans of science fiction and fantasy may be interested in The Geeky Chef Strikes Back, but it was clearly not the cookbook for me
