GEEK OBSESSION (SEPTEMBER 2018)

With the rise of technology and the continued growth of the geek gaming world, it is not uncommon to find unique and reinvented items around you that have taken on a geek form in one way or another. Beyond the days of just rocking the symbol on a T-shirt of your favorite super hero or video game character… the icons and symbols that represent a rising phase in everything geek are being brought to media and everyday products. 

Thus from this, brings my new idea in highlighting monthly one of the many geek products that I stumble upon and bring them to a bigger audience….and to enhance how big the geek market has integrated itself into our present world.

So whether you are a gamer, anime lover, overall geek enthusiast… I am sure that you will find yourself hyped for the various monthly highlights!

This month’s Geek Obsession is…..

COOKBOOKS

Ok, so who doesn’t drool over some of the recipes that you can make in various games? I mean, yes, its not like you have random stacks of rat meat sitting around or a bottle of Nuka Cola in the fridge…but you sure can improvise.

While I know there are tons and tons of geek and gamer cookbooks on the market around the world, I thought I would highlight some of the ones that I took an interest in, and for many have added (or have at least pre-ordered/ordered) for my future cooking endeavors.

Fallout: The Vault Dweller’s Official Cookbook 
(Available: October 23, 2018)  

Finally, a book that makes all the Fallout fans dreams come true. Who hasn’t dreamed of tasting a smooth Nuka Cola float while roasting in the sun, or devouring some Braised Deathclaw Steak with a side of YumYum Deviled Eggs. This cookbook provides you with in game inspired recipes that will improve your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. and keep your energy high as you navigate the eternal wasteland.

Still wondering what is so great about the revered Sweet Roll that every character talks about? Well now you can make them for yourself and be the judge. This cookbook entails recipes based on popular food found from all over the lands — Skyrim, Morrowing, Tamriel and beyond, allowing you to immerse yourself in the unique cuisines of the various races. These recipes are sure to delight the Dragonborn in us all (just watch for arrows in the kitchen — we all know how one to the knee can be endgame).
