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. Many of the original recipes you’ll learn to make on this site are items I imagine could be served in a medieval inn: pies of all sorts, stews, and hearty platters ready for a feast. I also create real-world versions of foods from some of my favorite fantasy universes. If you’re not a fantasy geek, don’t worry! These dishes are designed to satisfy even the most discerning modern palates.
