How To Make Eight Of Your Favorite Video Game Foods
Food may not be the first thing that one associates with video games, but gamers know just how important digital grub can be. Whether it's filling your health or raising your stats, in-game food is essential -- as essential as these recipes are if you're looking to make delicious, authentic, video game foods. Here are some of gaming's more memorable foods brought to life:
1. Heart Potion from The Legend of Zelda
This delicious sangria is sweet, refreshing, and the perfect drink for adventurers alike. For those underage adventurers, use a fruit juice of your choosing instead of wine and triple sec.
2. Poffins from Pokemon
Thank you, once again, Feast Of Fiction. While this recipe is on the more difficult side, the end result is worth it. These jelly-filled pastries are the perfect midday snack to boost your stats. Top off your pastry with either sesame or flax seeds for the perfect poffin.
3. The Cake from Portal
It's not a lie? GLaDOS, you monster.
This delicious chocolate cake is simple to make and the perfect treat for when your sweet tooth kicks in, or for when you're solving mind-bending puzzles.
4. Rock Sirloin from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Now you can make the food of every Dodongo's -- and sometimes my own -- dreams.
In less than an hour, you can make this special beef wellington -- tender beef coated in mushroom duxelles and baked in a flaky pastry -- to enjoy the ultimate Goron delicacy. Don't forget some classy music for your dining experience.
5. Sea Salt Ice Cream from Kingdom Hearts II
A must have treat for every keyblade master, Kingdom Hearts II director Tetsuya Nomura had this treat during a trip to Tokyo Disneyland. He was such a fan, he made a deal with Disney to incorporate Sea Salt Ice Cream into his game. Various characters in Kingdom Hearts II can be seen enjoying this sweet and salty treat.
Best enjoyed with friends, at dusk, on top of a large castle or mansion.
6. Sweetrolls from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Everybody loves a good sweetroll! Bake at your own risk: this roll's cinnamon and pecan filling mixed with the delicious -- and necessary -- icing is as addicting as it is simple to make.
7. Pumpkin Pie from Minecraft
The perfect pie for when the zombies start coming out at night. This simple recipe gets the special Minecraft feel thanks to pixels made from icing and food coloring.
