The Geeky Chef Cookbook
*Real-Life Recipes for Your Favorite Fantasy Foods - Unofficial Recipes from Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, and more
So you’re a geek, a nerd, a neo-maxi-zoom-dweebie. Or, you know, maybe you don’t like labels and you’re just really into sci-fi. That’s cool. I’m just guessing here, but you probably also like to eat. Great! Then this book is for you.
Generally, the kind of people who acquire the labels listed above, in addition to being wicked smart and perhaps experiencing a certain amount of social discomfort, tend to have a passion for a piece of work that consumes them. My blog, The Geeky Chef, was the love child of that intense nerd passion and my fondness for cooking.
Really, I have always had a fascination with food in fiction.
When I was six years old, I enlisted my big brother to help me make Tree Star cookies after watching Don Bluth’s The Land Before Time. I also made Unicorn Hair Soup after reading the wonderful YA novel Ella Enchanted when I was slightly older. I could really go on and on with these examples, but the tipping point that inspired The Geeky Chef actually started with a Zelda game.
