This Real-Life Skyrim Cookbook Will Turn You Into ‘The Gourmet’

If you are fond of playing role playing games or RPGs on your computer, chances are you have explored the wonderful world of Tamriel. Or at least Skyrim, the province of Tamriel that’s the namesake of Bethesda’s 2011 RPG.

You’ve probably wondered how your character, which starts off with at least Level 10 in every skill, has come to know about every single recipe there is in the world of Skyrim. I mean, sure, it’s probably more difficult to concoct potions and poisons than to char skeever flesh or make soup out of cabbage. Cooking is a breeze in Skyrim. All you need are the right ingredients and a steaming pot. You don’t really need a skill to cook.

But not so in real life. The real world can be tougher than the dragon-filled and vampire-infested northern region of Tamriel where your adventuring dovahkin finds itself—at least, culinary-wise. Worry not, as now you will have the chance to learn about every recipe in the Elder Scrolls world.

This coming March, Bethesda and Titan Books will launch the official Elder Scrolls cookbook, simply dubbed The Elder Scrolls: The Official Cookbook. The title has, perhaps, been made plain to avoid confusion so you won’t have to wonder what it’s about—unlike the in-game book Chimarvamidium in Skyrim. I mean, really. What’s that all about?

The Elder Scrolls: The Official Cookbook comes with 192 pages filled with more than 60 of the most delicious treats found in Tamriel, and you don’t have to be The Gourmet to cook them.

As the book’s description reads, “Immerse yourself in the diverse cuisines of the Nords, Bosmer, Khajit, and beyond with these recipes inspired by food in the Old Kingdom, across Tamriel, and more” including Apple Cabbage Stew, Sunlight Souffle, Sweetrolls, and my personal favorite, the Elsweyr Fondue. Hopefully it also has the Emperor’s favorite Potage Magnifique.

  • Author of cookbooks, Chelsea Monroe-Cassel.

Each of the recipes featured in the book has been carefully brought to life by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel, who is no stranger to bridging the world of culinary fiction and real-life kitchens. Chelsea is also the author of the Game of Thrones official cookbook A Feast of Ice and Fire.

If you’re excited to level up your culinary skills with tasty treats from Skyrim and beyond, The Elder Scrolls: The Official Cookbook will be available at the Bethesda Store and Amazon by March 2019.

Now you don’t have to worry about someone stealing your Sweetroll.
