The first fictional food recipe Cassandra Reeder made was Tree Star Cookies inspired by The Land Before Time at age six. Her geeky nature combined with her love of cooking led to the creation of geekychef.com. The goal of Geeky Chef is to help the geek community bring their food fantasies to reality. So if you've ever found yourself drooling over Pumpkin Pasties in Harry Potter, curious about Lembas Bread from Lord of the Rings or wondering if the cake is really a lie, this blog is for you. Each dish is thoroughly researched to make the final product taste and/or look as close to the source material as possible. Of course, everyone will imagine differently, but Cassandra hopes to give dedicated geeks a run for their tastebuds.
Cassandra currently lives in Portland with her fiance and pet parrot. Despite what conclusions you may have come to, she is not actually a pirate. Well, she is mostly not actually a pirate.
"Drawing inspiration from movies, video games and television shows, more than 60 recipes full of fantasy and science fiction are featured throughout the new cookbook. Lemon cakes - and bowls of brown if you're, um, into that - allow you to eat your feelings after that Game of Thrones season five finale, while other fictional food formulas, including 1UP mushroom cupcakes (Super Mario Cart), Romulan Ale (Star Trek), bacon pancakes (Adventure Time) Moloko Plus (A Clockwork Orange) and lembas (The Lord of the Rings), transport your taste buds into another world." - Creative Loafing
