Releases May 5th

If ever a cookbook spoke to me, it would be this one. The title alone had me. But then, seeing the cover sporting images of the Tardis from Doctor Who, and the Vulcan hand salute from Star Trek just to name two (my favorites), I knew I couldn’t turn back.

Author Cassandra Reeder has brought together fun and out of this word recipes based on the wonderful geeky worlds of Sic-Fi and Fantasy. THE GEEKY CHEF COOKBOOK: Real-Life Recipes For Fantasy Foods covers shows/stories/games that will have fans tying on their favorite show geeky aprons, and heading to the galley/mess hall to get their cook on.

Covering basic recipes – through desserts, there is something for everyone. Each recipe features the name of the geekverse that inspired it. You’ll find . . . Babylon 5: Spoo, Doctor Who: Fish Fingers and Custard, The Hunger Games: Gheese Buns, Star Trek: Plomeek Soup, World of Warcraft: Dragonbreath Chili, Firefly: Wife Soup, Adventure Time: Bacon Pancakes, Outlander: Highland Sandwiches, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Doublemeat Medley, Harry Potter: Cauldron Cakes, Super Mario Bros: 1Up Mushroom Cupcakes, The Hobbit: Seed Cakes, The Chronicles of Narnia: Turkish Delight, My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic: ChimiCherryChanga, The X-Files: Nonfat Tofutti Rice Dreamsicle, and so many more! (I know some sound odd, but all of the recipes are suited to human tastes)

THE GEEKY CHEF COOKBOOK is delightfully out of this world! I had so much fun turning the pages to be surprised by what was next. While there are some references that I, self-proclaimed nerdy geek, didn’t know, I just didn’t care. Each one was so much fun. I admire the author for making these strange, unearthly dishes into something for all of us to enjoy.

My one complaint, as it often is with cookbooks, there weren’t enough photos! I get that the more photos, the more the books costs to make and for us to buy, but I’m bummed that I don’t know what the finished product of some these creations look like. That aside, THE GEEKY CHEF COOKBOOK is a must have for sic-fi/fantasy/gamer/animation fans everywhere!
