Gourmet Gaming and Drunken Moogle Make Gaming Edible
Both of these blogs are likely to be contenders in your top “how the hell did I not know this existed!” list. If you’ve ever wondered what a ration from Metal Gear Solid tastes like, Gourmet Gaming has recipes inspired by the iconic edibles of the gaming world including the cake from Portal and the “meat” from Golden Axe. Some of the recipes seem a little phoned in like golden brown pizza from Dead Rising, which is literally just a pizza. That said, it does look like an amazing recipe for a pizza. Either way, if you fancy yourself a cook and love gaming, be sure to check the blog for updates every Wednesday.
If you’re more interested in getting your drink on, The Drunken Moogle is the next tab you should be opening in your browser. The site serves as your go to source for gaming-themed drinking games, cocktails, and all manner of alcohol related merchandise like shot glasses and mugs. The real standouts for me are the Pokemon cocktails that evolve from shots to full on drinks. Here’s the recipe for the Charmander, Charmeleon, and Charizard shotsn (copied from the site):
For the Charmander shot, pour a slash of grenadine into the bottom of a shot glass. Add the Fireball, then top with the Bacardi 151. Light it on fire, then extinguish before drinking.
Fire does indeed burn people, stuff, and faces. I know I’m going to be giving these a try. Websites like this are the best kind of examples of gaming culture growing up.
