Nerdy Recipes

A blog dedicated to fandom and otherwise geeky recipes. I do take requests for locating recipes. Unless otherwise stated, no recipes here are of my own fabrication.

I know whenever I am planning a conspiracy to take over Starfleet, controlling key personnel with parasites and sending messages to my brethren to come and join me from our home planet, it’s important to ensure everyone is well fed. In this case - mealworms for all (TNG: Conspiracy)!! Unfortunately, neither Captain Picard or Commander Riker had the opportunity to taste these mealworms, which is a shame, because they are delicious.

If you are concerned at all - never fear! These appetising worms are nothing but pasta in a balsamic glaze sauce. They are perfect with a side of parasite bread and perhaps a salad (but let’s not get too carried away with vegetables). Come back next week to learn how to make the parasite breads but in the meantime please enjoy these mealworms as you plot your next takeover.

So as someone who really loves cooking, I can say for a fact that I really love anime and manga that involve cooking. 

One that I’m particularly fond of is Yumeiro Patissiere, because oh my god the food looks so amazing and I always feel hella inspired to make dellicious stuff whenever I watch the show.

Yesterday, I decided to take a crack at a sort of tedious (But super worth it) dish called the Mille Crepe, which basically means I make a jillion crepes, make some pastry cream to swipe over those lil guys, add some fruits, and make a cake out of it. So that’s what I did. 

And oh my god, it looked and tasted so rad.

Mille Crepe aux Fraises
(serves: probs like 10 people)

-

Ingredients for Crepes-

  • 2 cups milk
  • ¾ cup water
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 6 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • oil or clarified butter for cooking the crepes

-

Ingredients for Filling-

  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 2 Tbsp corn starch
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • approx 2 tsp vanilla (give or take)
  • Thinly sliced strawberries (as needed)

~

Procedure for Crepes-

  • Mix all the ingredients with a regular hand held whisk. Combine them thoroughly because you don’t want any lumps in this beautiful masterpiece, right? Just remember, the anti-anthem of this recipe is ‘My Humps’ by fergie. ye.
  • Once that’s all done, let it chill in the fridge for an hour, and in that time, work on your pastry cream.
  • Once that’s all ready, heat a large pan up to high and brush it with cooking oil or clarified butter. Once it’s hot enough, pour about a ladle-full of crepe batter on. Move the pan around and stuff so that the batter’s thinly spread and sorta circular.
  • Wait until the edges are pale and starting to brown, then flip it over and let it cook for one more minute. After that, plop that shit onto a plate and repeat for the rest of the batter till you’re out. IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH FLIPPING THINGS OR WHATEVER, CLICK HERE FOR A DUMB TUTORIAL.
  • Once all your crepes are done, let them chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes until they’re not hella hot anymore, then get started on dat cake-makin process.

-

Procedure for Pastry Cream-

  • Put the milk, vanilla and heavy cream in a medium sized sauce pan and heat for about 5-10 minutes, until it’s hot but not boiling, then remove it from the heat.
  • During that time, mix the eggs, corn starch, and sugar in a bowl. Temper them by gradually adding about a cup of the hot cream mixture into the eggs while stirring it a shit ton so the eggs don’t curdle.
  • Once it’s tempered, pour the egg and cream mixture into the rest of the cream and turn the heat on low. Stir frequently to prevent the eggs from curdling and keep at it until it’s thick enough to cover the back of a wooden spoon.
  • Once that happens, remove it from the heat and put the custard in a sealed container, refrigerate until it’s what’s cooler than bein cool. 

~

Assembly-

  • Place one crepe on the plate, then add a thin layer of cream and then some strawberries, then top it with another crepe and repeat.
  • Don’t add strawberries to every single layer and use the cream sparingly, this is a cake not a mess of cream and fruit you gosh darn plebians.
  • Let it chill for at least an hour in the fridge, covered, so the cake will set. I neglected to do this because I am a dumb, but don’t be like me. Be better than me.

And ye. that’s it. you just made a super fancy cake. I hope you’re proud of yourself cause I am. Now eat it. EAT AND EMBRACE THE FACT THAT YOU WASTED SO MUCH TIME MAKING SUCH AN AMAZING DESSERT.

OMNOMBERRY PIE

The Omnomberry (Rubus yummycosis) is a short perennial shrub characterized by its valuable magenta berries. It is native to the lands of Orr, which until recently were submersed under the sea. These bulbous plants prefer to grow in dark, concealed corners near to Cathedrals of dead Human Gods. The berries grow on the elevated stalks of the plant, which resembles a large version of the berry itself. 

To harvest these highly valuable berries, one must firstly obtain an orichalcum harvesting sickle, and secondly cleave through the ravenous waves of undead infesting Malchor’s Leap and the Cursed shore, where the berries are most commonly observes.

As a crop their nodes have a 5 hour respawn period. These small fruit have a minimal yield, one berry per node> Currently they fetch a price of 2 silver, 97 copper.Gathering boosts have been known to increase output by double. 

Omnomberries have wide culinary versatility, from bread to dye to Gift(s) of Nature, and are cherished for their status improvements. 

Shocking. That’s probably why they’re almost 3 silver a pop. I always wondered why fruit that grows so close to massive death and rot is so good for your magic find. Maybe it sucks nutrients out of Zhaitan’s undead minions…gross. This pie gives you a 66% chance of stealing health on a critical hit. So that’s where the undead power comes in….

Alright kiddies time to make a pie- but bear in mind since these things are hilariously fictional I had to bend the rules of fruit pie a bit. The Omnomberries seemed most similar to Black Currants to me. But considering I live in the “Mid” part of the “Midwest”, I can’t get them here, fresh or frozen. Only preserve. Recipe is under the cut.

Yakisoba
(serves: 4)

-

Ingredients for Noodles-

  • 2 portions of home made ramen noodles (click for recipe)*
  • 1 carrot, julienned*
  • 1/4  napa cabbage, thinly sliced
  • Like 2 handfuls of bean sprouts
  • a small bunch of chives, chopped
  • Bonito Flakes (Katsuobushi)
  • Some seaweed flakes
  • Yakisoba Sauce (ingredients below)
  • pickled red ginger

*if you honestly don’t have the time, then just get two portions of those dried ramen noodle things. I honestly recommend the fresh, homemade kind though. It really makes a difference.

*julienned just means you make the carrot slices into lil matchsticks. Like really thin carrot matchstick things. u feel me.

Ingredients for Yakisoba Sauce-

~

Procedure-

  • To make the sauce, just take all those things and combine them in a small bowl. Taste it, if you want to add any more of any of the ingredients, fuckin go for it you ho, I don’t own you.
  • Boil some water, add salt into it and boil the noodles for a little over 1-2 minutes. If your noodles are dried packaged thingies, boil them for about 4 minutes or until they are al dente.
  • Take your vegetables and about half of your chopped chives, already sliced, and mix them together in a bowl, coating them in some sesame oil, black pepper, and salt. Heat up a large pan on a stove and drizzle a little sesame oil onto there once it’s insanely hot. 
  • Add the veggies onto the pan and cook them until they’re limpish. Once that’s happened, add the ramen and the sauce and, using two tongs, toss that shit like a salad.
  • Once it’s almost done, taste one of the noodles to see if it’s cooked to your liking. Add some salt or pepper if you want.
  • Then add the katsuoboshi. Toss more. Afterwards, add the rest of the chives and toss again. After it’s done, place it in a bowl and top it with some seaweed flakes, some more chopped chives, and some pickled red ginger.
