Geeky Cookbooks for the Geeky Cook
If you just finished up the latest season of Doctor Who or just finished reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and are asking yourself, “What geeky thing should I do next?” Well, I have the solution for you. Here are some of the coolest (and geekiest) cookbooks out in the world today. So grab your Tardis apron and your Superman spatula and let’s start cooking!
First is Rosanna Pansino’s cookbook, The Nerdy Nummies Cookbook. You might recognize Rosanna (a.k.a. Ro) from her Youtube channel where she creates gorgeous nerdy desserts, drinks, and crafts. She’s even made her own Nuka Cola for the Fallout 4 release. In her cookbook Ro shows you how to make simple geeky sweets, such as an Apple Pi Pie, a Periodic Table of Cupcakes and Unicorn Poop Cookies. She also includes basic recipes for simple cakes and cookies (which are helpful for any non-baker, like myself!) and has beautiful step by step photos to help show her process.
You can’t read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child without having a nice cold Butterbeer by your side! The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook will tell you how to make Harry’s favorite dish, a Treacle Tart, Molly Weasley’s meat pie and many other delicious dishes, good for any witch, wizard or muggle.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, what dish could possibly be better than Fish Fingers and Custard? You can find out in Dining with the Doctor: The Unauthorized Whovian Cookbook. This cookbook includes recipes for Doctor Who fans for any occasion. Oseland re-watched every episode of the new Doctor Who and created a dish for each one. It’s crazy ambitious! And crazy impressive. Now it’s your turn to re-watch Doctor Who while making a dish per episode! Sounds fantastic!
Next up is your favorite cartoon family, the Belchers. The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book will show you all the different ways you can make burgers! Recipes include illustrations on how to assemble the burgers and of course they come with all the hilarious puns just like the show. Some of the punny burgers you will find in this cookbook are: the Eggers Can’t Be Choosers burger, Hummus a Tune burger, and Pickle My Funny Bone burger. You will also learn how to cook a basic burger and how to cook flawless fries.
