Cook Like a Nerd: Official Cookbooks from Your Favorite Fandoms
For many of us, our favorite TV shows and movies are places we want to get lost in. We watch them over and over and wish we could immerse ourselves into the universe they create – or else bring part of that universe into our own. One way to capture the feeling of stepping into a fictional world is to whip up a snack or a meal that you might have seen your favorite characters eat, and these officially authorized cookbooks can help you do it!
