    Basilisk venom is a bold flavor. You can't just lob a teaspoon of tartar sauce at a dish and hope to recreate anything like it.

    If you are lucky enough to travel to Czechia, the food vendors on the streets of Prauge will gladly relieve you of both your ignorance and your wallet.

    Do you have to eat it with a silver fork?

    I like that the burger on the back of the book looks it's got eyes on stalks and a tongue

    Do recipes call for tartar sauce? Tartar sauce seems like something you would have a recipe *for*. Like, I get that you can go to the store and buy Heinz tater sauce in a squeeze bottle or whatever, but that's what you'd use when you specifically don't want to cook, right? Surely anyone who is already preparing food would, if anything, make tartar sauce as directed by the recipe, right?

    This is a product I don’t understand, because I think of themed cookbooks as being for children and The Witcher as very much not.

    Well then you should read the news post, Jerry has some choice opinions about this exact subject.

    Readers of themed cookbooks go on to create menus for Galactic Starcruiser and Galaxy's Edge.

    On a related note, my nephew rather enjoyed the Roald Dahl cookbook.

    The Star Trek cookbook is a lot of fun. It has a whole section on how to replicate the look of drinks in Quark's bar. Plus making other prop food like Ghagh.

    Well, he just says it’s dorky in a tone that seems celebratory of said dorkiness. I guess maybe as a guy who’s been reading a webcomic about video games for almost 20 years, I should probably cool it with judgments about other people’s geekery. The casting of stones being an unfit pursuit for the residents of glass domiciles and all.

    I bought my friend a Frasier-themed cookbook for his 30th

    I think it's just one of those things that cookbook publishers use to set themselves apart in a crowded marketplace

    So it's got tossed salads and scrambled eggs. What else was in there?

    Hopefully it was nut-free.

    I love foods that aren't real. Breaded gryphon wings, spiced nerf tubers, baked breast of granite gargoyle... it's such a bummer I can't ever eat them, they sound so good.

    It didn't even have that, as far as I could tell

    It was basically stuff you'd get in a coffee shop like baked goods and light lunches, with some Niles and Frasier banter interspersed

    Quite possible it was just an existing recipe book, with some pasted in stuff to make it "Frasierfied".
