Elder Scrolls Cookbook Lets You Eat Like The Dragonborn
Have you ever wondered what Honningbrew Mead actually tastes like? Is your family coming round for a weekend meal and you want to give them a hearty taste of Tamriel? Did someone steal your sweetroll? Well, look no further because there is an Elder Scrolls cookbook for all of the above.
That's right, Skyrim fans can get their hands on a copy of The Elder Scrolls: The Official Cookbook by creative food writer Chelsea Monroe-Cassel. For Dragonborns and food-lovers who want to bring Tamriel to the table, this is the Elder Scrolls merch for you.
We are coming up to Skyrim's 10th anniversary on 11 November, 2021. So, what better to celebrate than by cooking up some of the fantastical delights? You'll certainly have plenty to choose from. Don't worry though, you can probably just use a regular oven rather than a massive cooking pot or fire spit.
What Recipes Are In The Elder Scrolls Cookbook?
The Elder Scrolls cookbook contains a plethora of recipes based on various foods and drinks that can be obtained across Bethesda's sprawling franchise, which give gamers some much-needed Health, Magicka, or a Stamina boost at vital points in the game. Recipes in the cookbook include: Skooma, Horker Loaf, Apple Cabbage Stew, and much more. Both garlic bread and the ultimately replenishing Elsweyr Fondue are included, athough, it's safe to say you won't get a real-life Magicka boost from these ones.
Speaking to Polygon, Monroe-Cassel shared how she spent a huge amount of time researching the Elder Scrolls games as well as experimenting with different ingredients from around the world to make up her culinary creations.
Revealing some recipes she found particularly difficult, Monroe-Cassel said: "There’s always some recipe or dish that just fights back! In this case, it was the two cool-sounding cocktails from Riften. The ingredients were just a little too variable for me to perfect recipes for the cookbook, but I’m hoping to revisit them for my blog."
Where Can I Buy The Elder Scrolls Cookbook?
As for her favourite dish, Monroe-Cassel added: "I’m a dessert fiend, so obviously the sweetrolls had to be 'tested' until they were perfect. Because they’re pretty quick to make, they’re awesome with breakfast in addition to after dinner. Or with tea. They’re pretty much great whenever. I always have some absurd favorites. In this collection, I really loved the Rye Crisps, the Canis Root Tea, and the quick meads. I keep bees, so getting to use my own honey to make those was awesome."
You can buy your hardcover copy of The Elder Scrolls: The Official Cookbook from Amazon for $20. The site also shows the full list of recipes in the book and gives a breakdown of all the different races in Tamriel as well as their culinary skills and traditional dishes. Finally, the book contains a whole heap of beautiful images for some of the most beloved places in the Elder Scrolls games including the Sleeping Giant Inn in Riverwood.
However, if you're more into Winterfell than Winterhold, then Monroe-Cassel's Game Of Thrones inspired cookbook is here for you. Or, for those who are looking to create food from a galaxy far, far away, there is her Star Wars-related recipe book. Our stomachs are rumbling already.
