Welcome, Traveler!

My name is Rudee, and I'm a Las Vegas and Montana-based home cook. I’m also a huge fan of fantasy novels, TV shows, movies, and video games - and my style of cooking is heavily influenced by those things.

These dishes are designed to satisfy even the most discerning modern palates.
