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. 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.

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

Lavender Violet Simple Syrup

This lavender violet simple syrup is herbal and floral. It adds a unique flavor to anything it's added to - I like to use it in iced tea brewed with Harney and Sons Paris Tea.
